Saying good-bye to Jackson Hole

It's Tuesday October 26th, we've been in the Jackson Hole area for 22-days and we leave this week.  We've got mixed feelings about leaving.  We've been fortunate to be here early enough to see the Fall colors (and experience temps in the 60's) as well as the first snow fall of the season (with temps in the high teens).  We've seen stunning, beautiful scenery, driven past herds of buffalo, seen elk and moose and pronghorn antelope and one day had an eagle soar alongside the jeep as we drove down a back country road.

We've had the pleasure of meeting great people who in the short time here invited us to share their lives and meals.  We've been invited to the local Elks Club for fun and food and met local business people who share our unique sense of humor.  We've walked the town square of Jackson stopping in various galleries and saw samples of great art work ranging from sculptors, painters and photographers.  And we can't forgot the visit to the National Museum of Wildlife Art (thanks Joe for the passes).   

We've been staying in the Homewood Suites by Hilton while in Jackson WY. What a great place to call home. For those unfamiliar with Homewood Suites, they offer small two-room suites with separate bedrooms and living/kitchen areas. The best part of staying here besides the wonderful staff is the breakfast everyday and dinner 4-nights a week. Speaking of food, there's fresh baked cookies every night! In short, we've been spoiled.

We'll be back
