Goin’ to Jackson

Actually, back from Jackson, but I wanted to give you a recap in picture form.

Moose. You can see 2 of them if you squint, but I think there are actually three. Maybe it’s a little moose family. Ahhn. They were just laying out in back of the visitors’ center, right on the edge of town.

We took a sleigh ride into the Elk Refuge. The big guy is Moses, the boss daddy of the elk. He’s missing half a rack because he got in a fight.

We went on a snowmobile ride through Yellowstone, which is the only way you can get into Yellowstone in the winter. (Yes, it’s as cold as it looks– probably colder.)

We got a little up close and personal with a buffalo herd in Yellowstone. We had to drive through the herd. One of the babies played chicken with me and tried to headbutt my leg. He missed, though.

The rest of the week was pretty much filled with skiing. I did some skiing and a lot of sight-seeing. Riding the tram up to the top of the mountain is great fun, even if you can’t ski down like me, because the views are amazing.

And, of course, a trip to Jackson Hole would not be complete without some pictures of the Teton Mountain range.

    Sonja – That's it! next time someone gives you crap you look 'em dead in the eye and says “I played chicken with a buffalo and won. You sure you want to mess with me?” It looks like you guys had a great time, I'm so glad you got to go!
