Jackson Hole & Park City – August 7th – 13th 2022

Jackson (originally called Jackson’s Hole by mountain men) is in a valley between the Gros Ventre and Teton mountain ranges. Unlike most mountain ranges the Tetons lack foothills, which can obscure the view. As such, the Tetons rise sharply from 5,000 to nearly 7,000 feet above the surrounding terrain. The Park is famous throughout America for its spectacular landscape featuring majestic mountains, pristine lakes, and abundant wildlife. Park City… Known for the 2002 Winter Olympics, this beautiful town is full of charm and history!
