More Jackson

For some reason I have travel on my mind.  So why not throw a few more pictures of my recent travels on my blog?
Looks Like I finally figured out what was wrong with the pictures I tried to post last week.  I can thank Donna for guiding me the right direction, all be it unintentionally.  I was doing exactly the same thing that gave her problems on her blog.

Jackson MT is in a place called the Big Hole.  Around here we say it “the-Bighole.”  Normally this time of year it could be looking a bit dry.  Not this year.  Check it out.

Why do they call it the Big Hole?  Because it’s a big, flat, high plateau with mountains all around.  We’re talking 7,000 feet above sea level at the lower elevations.  Could be up to 11,000 around the peaks.

I know.  It doesn't do it justice.
And this picture?

After the windshield wipers ran.
It wasn’t raining when I went through Jackson Montana.  It was bug-splattering.

From Jackson to Jackson

Filed under: Travel — aliceaudrey @ 11:47 pm

It was a whirlwind tour last weekend.  All told I drove just over 700 miles.  We went from Jackson Montana to Jackson Wyoming and back.  There’s quite a difference between them.

Here’s one of the main streets in Jackson Wyoming.

Now check out the only street in Jackson Montana.

Jackson Wyoming features such exotic locals as the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum, a central square with unique entry way arches,and a large number of motels, bars, and trinket shops.  Jackson Montana features a general store, a “Hot Springs” resort, a hat factory, a school, and a bar.

Jackson Wyoming LOOKS Western.  Jackson Montana IS Western.  I like them both.

The Water In Wyoming

Wyoming Humor

I went rafting in Jackson Wyoming last weekend.  What a blast!  I went with my kids, mother, and sister.  We went with a tour group; the Jackson Hole Whitewater/Teton Expeditions Scenic Float Trips group on July 1st at noon.

Why give all the details?  Because two photo companies set up shop on the cliff over the scariest rapids.  You can go to www.snakeriverphotos.net or www.floatographs.com and see pictures of me!

I’m the fat lady in the blue top and brown pants on the nose of the raft.  The rafting guide called it “Riding Rodeo.”  I called it “Being the hood ornament.”  Only, as my mother said, when we got to the big stuff, the hood ornament broke off.  Into the boat, luckily.  I have “swam” before, but not on this particular trip.

I have some chatty stuff to day about Jackson Wyoming and the trip too and from, but that can wait until tomorrow.
