A Day in Jackson

Thayne, Wyoming: The weather seemed to want to improve a bit this morning, so we all piled in the Honda and DT drove us one hour north to Jackson for lunch and a walk around the town square. As promised, I took photos of Mom - under an arch made of (naturally shed, of course) elk antlers.

And the obligatory photo

Just for fun... here we are in Jackson in 2010

And way back in 2003

We went to a new place on the square, Local, a restaurant and bar that specializes in locally-raised game - elk and bison. Y'all I know I just eat this stuff up (pun intended) and love all this sustainable ranching hoopla.

Kung Pao Chicken - and it was definitely the first time we had been in a Chinese restaurant with stuffed moose and elk heads on the wall (left over from when the joint was a steak house, no doubt).

Kung Pao Moose?

We had a super good time at the restaurant tonight. We were joined by Gene's daughter, Cheryl, and she had a few good stories to entertain us. Cheryl was interested in our life in Asia and we were interested in her life training horses and hiking in the mountains behind her ranch. (Cheryl and DT grew up in Merced, California as kids and went to the same high school.) It was great to get to know her better.

One interesting part of living at 6500 feet? The daffodils are still blooming and the tulips are just popping out of the ground!

Until my next update, I remain, your gamey correspondent.
