Jackson, WY Adventure

So we decided that we needed to start doing more activities while we are out here, because we only have one year left.  Each month we will pick at least one activity like skiing/snowboarding, museum, concert, hiking etc.

December was the month for Wyoming!

Probably not the smartest idea I've ever had going directly through the Teton Pass and the Swan Valley Pass in the middle of winter.  It was so scary!! I'm not even exaggerating there are people walking on the side of the road to go skiing and snowboarding on this curvy narrow mountain that you could just fall off of.  Then take into consideration our car being really old, the front tires are completely worn down, and the front brakes are going again.  I'm pretty sure that I had multiple panic attacks on the way down the mountain especially when our car started to fish tail a little bit!

When we arrived safely at our destination this is the wonderful view that welcomed us into the town.


When we got to Jackson we took a walk through the visitors center and saw all off the displays that they have about the wildlife.

  After we went on a sleigh ride through the elk reservation.  It was FREEZING I nearly lost my nose it was so cold.

It was so fun though! We got just a few feet from the Elk, and learned all about them and it was interesting.

Afterward to warm up we went to Billy's burger and had the biggest cheeseburger with lettuce, onions, mayo, ketchup, mustard, a huge beef patty, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, and jalapenos.  Along with some waffle fries and a diet coke it was the perfect ending to such a fun day with my hubby :)

We were planning on staying for the fireworks and the torchlight parade down the mountain, but we (meaning I) was just too scared to be driving through those mountain passes at 10pm at night, so we headed on home.

Before we left though we got another picture in front of the arch, almost one year later from when we took our first one :) the top is from a year ago, and the bottom one is from yesterday
