A spectacular thunderstorm raged around us one afternoon as we headed to the visitor center. Donna went inside and I stayed in the truck trying to capture some of the lightning. It was an experiment on my part and I only got a couple of images but it was great practice! You can see the huge crack in the windshield that started as a rock chip and spread to over 2′ wide. Now the truck has a new windshield.
We explored the old cabin and general store at Menor’s Ferry, saw some very old carriages, too.
The National Museum of Wildlife Art is just outside Jackson and is well worth a visit. The Life size or larger bronzes outside are amazing. The bronzes small and large inside and the art (paintings and sculptures) inside are a pleasure to see.
Any visitor to Jackson is sure to remember the 4 large arches on the town square (one at each corner). We went into town Saturday morning and were lucky to find a crew rebuilding one of the arches with all fresh elk antlers. They were picked up in the spring (I think it is a Boy Scout project).
