Two years in a row we ended our Summer in Wyoming. Absolutely beautiful country and the best time of the year to go. Invited friends and their family to join us for three nights in a home near Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Arrived early afternoon on Monday and got settled and the toys unloaded. Played some cards, watched a movie, enjoyed a nice dinner. There was plenty of room for all of us.
Tuesday spent the day out four-wheeling. Got very dirty up in the mountains. For dinner we had reservations to the Bar J Chuckwagon. If you haven’t experienced a supper like that just make the time and do it. The Bar D Chuckwagon in Durango, Colorado is similar, but the food at the Bar J was incredible. Even more incredible than the Bar D which is crazy. Loved this day!
Wednesday was rafting on the Snake River. Most of the rapids are Class 3, but some were pretty intense for Class 3. The run was 8 miles and took us three hours. Our raft was the kind where everyone got to paddle. No free rides! High Adventure for us.
Thursday was a ride on Big Red. Absolutely beautiful up on top. Felt like you could see the whole world or at least all of Wyoming. Here is the official description from their website.
In just 12 minutes, the Aerial Tram glides skyward 4139 vertical feet. The summit offers staggering 360-degree views of the Tetons, Jackson Hole valley and surrounding mountain ranges. The “Top of the World” provides amazing access to a plethora of of great hiking and running trails, climbing and the occasional snowball fight.
With the tram you get access to the gondolas has the chairlifts. I look forward to going back, never enough time to do as much as you want. After our trip to Teton Village we loaded up and headed back to Idaho Falls. Got in pretty late. Left the unloading for morning.
Friday we slept in. After four days everyone was tired. Once everything was cleaned up and put away, errands ran, groceries bought we started setting up for Friday Night Cinema. This was the last outdoor movie night of the Summer and the unanimous choice was Avengers End Game. To wrap up our outdoor movie nights we had Costa Vida cater dinner. It was a yummy way to kick off the evening.
Saturday was Keith and my Anniversary. Started the day with sex and ended the day with sex. The boys made us scrambled eggs, English muffins, sausage links and OJ for breakfast. Keith took me to get a new pair of jeans and I talked him into a new suit. Our evening ended with dinner at The Cellar in Ammon. He had the prime rib and I had the filet mignon. Creme Brûlée for dessert. Stayed in the guest house for the first time. I will give him points for being a romantic. It has been a good 24 years. ♥️
