After an eventful stint in the mountains of Yellowstone and Grand Teton, I have arrived in Jackson, WY for the ART FAIR at JACKSON HOLE!
I'm having some internet time in the very sleek public library now before set-up.
This morning's breakfast was heavenly after 8 days of living outside, eating food from a bag, and enduring instant coffee. The great outdoors do make you appreciate the little pleasures of modern living. :) I'm only staying at a Motel 6 in Jackson, but I'm already looking forward to the simple joy of bed and shower.
There were many highlights from my time in the national parks, including perfectly-lit deer in stream crossings, herding 300+ bison from our path in the backcountry, waterways in all their changing glory, and of course - the people-watching! An occasional ice cream cone (when available) provided comfort and sugar-rush, while the luminous scenery left me even a little snap-happy with the camera.
Jackson is a charming place, and, after a winding and exploratory journey to get here, I'm happy to be setting up the old tent today for a little mountain-circus-show. Come all ye Jacksonians!
