Jackson Hole Honeymoon

Most homeymooners jet off to tropical locales to celebrate thier newly minted marriage, but not us we opted to head to Wyoming in the dead of winter where temperatures range from -10 to +20! Seriously though, we decided to pick a ski area for our honeymoon and "embrace the winter!" We picked Jackson Hole, Wyoming and had a marvelous trip!

A lovley wine and cheese spread awaited at the hotel sent by my very sweet boss who arranged for small gifts to be delivered to the room each day of our stay.
We enjoyed our treat while watching the last five minutes of the Super Bowl. Sorry Peyton.
The Gros Ventre mountains flank the town of Jackson and were a beautiful sight right outside of our hotel.
We LOVED our boutique hotel, The White Buffalo Club.

We also loved a little bakery called the Bunnery were we ate several breakfasts.
The TV behind Andy is showing the it was -1 on our first day in Jackson.

The famous elk antler arches stand at the four entrances to Jackson's Town Square.
The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar is a famous Jackson landmark.
It is known for its saddle bar stools. Sadly, I wasn't all that impressed with the place!
A store for me!

Andy warming up by the fireplace before we head out skiing. Doesn't he look like a pro!


Wednesday we took a sleigh ride tour through the National Elk Refuge. Several locals recommended it and it didn't disappoint.
We also saw "The Man of La Mancha" at the local theatre and thought it was great. We love going to musicals.

Thursday was Andy's big day as we went snowmobiling in Yellowstone! It was a very cool experience.
All that I really wanted that day was to see a buffalo and I went home sad and buffalo-less. However, we did see a moose when skiing!
We spent a ton of time in town eating amazing food and also got a few massages at some fabulous spas. Andy planned an unforgettable trip!

We went snowmobiling in Colorado 2 years ago and it is probably the coolest thing I've ever done. It looks like you had a great honeymoon!! What a great idea!
