Perception/Reality in Jackson Hole

Without a doubt, Jackson Hole is one of the most picturesque places in my country. It lives up to any expectation that one might have about the American West.

Everything that you might want in that category is present including all the visible trappings of ranch and mountain life.

Along with the natural beauty and stunning landscapes, you’ll also find pockets of Jackson that look like the rest of America. By that, I mean things that aren’t uniquely western or even rugged.

If you look at this portrait in isolation you might mistake it for Jackson, Mississippi or Jacksonville, Illinois.

I find the differences and the similarities in the places I visit to be equally important.
