We started off the morning with a hot air balloon in the front yard. We thought this happened every day, but it be should landing on the golf course. Off to Jackson Hole and new states Idaho and Wyoming. We passed through Afton, Wyoming where the world’s largest Elk Antler Arch exists – of course we needed a picture. It is so beautiful here – we can see ski slopes that are green and beautiful. We are following the Snake River that is running high and fast. We also pass the Elk Refuge where the Elk spend their winters.
When we arrive in Jackson, our friends Mike and Carol Dixon are there already (friends from Atlanta who now live in Boise, Idaho). They also have 3 kids about our kids ages, Andrew, Keith and Sarah. We take the kids to a pizza place and we go to the Million Dollar Steak House – just adults. Jackson is a fun town with shops and restaurants off the old town square. Back to business, we need to pack for our backpacking trip that begins tomorrow.
