FUN-travel: Jackson Hole, WY

  • Abundant wildlife lured them to the valley…

…Native Americans… then fur trappers…

..then homesteaders.

  • But soil was not ideal for raising crops…

…so the valley was used for cattle…

…the Dude Ranch was born… & tourism took off.

  • Then In 1937…

…valley residents built a ski tow at Teton Pass…

…& the rest is history.

George Washington Memorial Park – iconic elk antler archways mark each corner.

FUN-fact –The term “hole” was used by early trappers or mountain men, who primarily entered the valley from the north and east and had to descend along relatively steep slopes, giving the sensation of entering a hole.

More FF – Spotted Meg Ryan on aisle 2 at the Pearl St. Market!
