Made for another world

Jackson trip

We just got back from a quick trip to Jackson WY. Jackson is about 4 hours south west of us. To get to Jackson you travel through Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, some beautiful wild country. As much as people talk about Yellowstone, and it is pretty, I think the Teton's are so much more spectacular. We saw our first grizzley on our way there! He was about twenty minutes outside of the entrance to Yellowstone on the Cody side. Sadly before I got a picture of him, he went behind some trees. While we were in Jackson we went to see the Bar J Wranglers. It's chuckwagon style food on a ranch with cowboy music and comedy, fun western entertainment. Max enjoyed the cowboy atmosphere and played the part with vigor, much to the delight of the people around. As you can see above he practiced his "cowboy look". Mostly though it was just nice to get away as a family and enjoy the area. Wasn't God generous to provide such amazing beauty for us to enjoy and live in.


  1. What gorgeous pictures....I love the one of Max and Chris looking at each other, so sweet. I remember seeing that big ol' pile of horns driving through Jackson too! You look FABULOUS Beck, I like your hair!

Not knowing when you would get back, I have been watching your site to see beautiful pictures of your trip and you didn't dissapoint. so glad you had a wonderful time. Yes, God is good to give you time and place to relax and have a great tri. I know it was wonderful for all of your family. I look forward to hearing all about it. I just know Max loved it. Love your hair, is tht new, did you cut it again?


  3. Love all the photos Beck! I'm glad you all had a good getaway- you are right... God is so amazing to let us all enjoy nature's splendor. Pete and I both love Max's cowboy face. Wish I could've experienced him acting the part.

  4. Wow! What a beautiful part of the country! I am so glad you got to have time away as a family and enjoy it.
