Jackson Hole Travel and a Trip Down Snake River at Dusk

Traveling heals the mind and renews the spirit.  Two weeks ago, after finishing a very busy Virtuoso Travel Week in Las Vegas, I hopped on a flight to Jackson Hole Wyoming to meet some friends.  Jackson Hole is an unassuming place with a simple airport and some of the friendliest and most hospitable people I have ever met.  A week long stay in Teton Village gave us the opportunity to fully explore this majestic national park and surrounding areas.  So ...
