Nestled between the Grand Teton and Gros Ventre mountain ranges, the
valley of Jackson Hole is home to an authentic cowboy town that offers
opportunities for all ages. The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, known for its
leather saddle barstools and the Silver Dollar Saloon, where we’ll be
stopping for lunch, are both unique and historic spots to grab a beer or
cocktail. Take the time to explore the art galleries and robust
shopping district of Jackson Square before we check in at Spring Creek
Ranch. You’ll have time to unwind in your mountain-view accommodations
before we gather for a sunset dinner at The Granary – a restaurant
offering upscale dining and gorgeous panoramic views of the Grand Teton
mountain range.

situated at the base of the Grand Teton mountain range. There are a

Visitor’s Center, hiking to Hidden Falls, joining the group on an
excursion aboard a scenic boat tour, or simply relaxing with a cool
refreshment in the crisp mountain air. A charming drive along the Grand
Teton Loop will provide multiple photo opportunities for moose, elk,
bears, pronghorn, bison, and, of course, the Grand Tetons. Venturing to
Signal Mountain Lodge, we’ll stop for lunch along the banks of Jackson
Lake before heading into the valley for photos of the historic
settlements along Mormon Row. Our evening will conclude at the

Faithful Lodge before continuing through Fountain Flats and Midway and
Lower Geyser Basins where you’ll find outstanding colors of steamy blue,

the Historic Fort Yellowstone, this location boasts expansive views of
the surrounding Lamar Valley, mountain ranges, and Swan Lake. Continuing
east through Roosevelt Junction, the landscape uncovers the cascading
waters of Tower Fall where guests may take the short hike to the bottom,
or simply view it from the top. As the evening approaches, we’ll

this trek through the heart of Yellowstone’s display of wildlife as our
