Grand Teton National Park and Jackson Hole, Wyoming
I’m lumping the Grand Tetons and Jackson Hole together into one blog, not because they both don’t deserve their own space, but because I think of them almost inseparably. The Tetons are majestic, to say the least. And their sharp, pointy peaks are so iconic. I, unfortunately, can’t say that we’ve ever hiked, skied, or traversed those peaks. We’ve only ever driven out the south entrance of Yellowstone and saw the Tetons out the car window on our way to Jackson Hole. We’ve never stopped to engage in all this park has to offer, which is clearly a tragedy. So, do what I say, not what I’ve done in this instance, ok?
Visit Jackson Hole
Jackson Hole is a great town to visit. It is quaint, yet stylish. Old west, yet modern. The antler arches that grace the entrances to the town square are awesome. Plus, they hold a theatrical shoot out every night at 6pm. Do not miss it! (https://www.jacksonholechamber.com)
Cheer for the cowboys in the rodeo
If you know me, you know I LOVE rodeos! I don’t know why, I just do. And Jackson Hole holds a rodeo EVERY Wednesday and Saturday night during the summer (http://jhrodeo.com). I am in heaven. Unfortunately, I don’t have any great photos of the rodeo…you’ll just have to believe me.
Grand Teton National Park was a perfect place to view the recent full solar eclipse!
Location: Grand Teton National Park is located south of Yellowstone National Park in Northwest Wyoming. Jackson Hole is located just south of the Grand Tetons along Highway 191.
