Jackson Hole - Jan/Feb 2001
Morgan and I took a cool trip to Jackson Hole for a week and a half. Unfortunately the snow didn't quite cooperate and we ended up in the dryest winter on record. Only towards the very end of the trip did it start snowing and we got some fresh powder. In light of the bad mountain snow conditions we did end up with alternate activities like cross country skiiing and a cool snow mobile trip.

  • Arriving at the cabin. Apparently spelling is not a highlight of Wyoming hospitality right Mr. Viggers?
  • Getting up early on the first day to catch the frosty morning fog. Heck it's a cozy -15 degrees right then
  • Making it to the top. First run up with the Gondola and checking out the awesome view.
  • Viggers carving one down the mountain...
  • The boys on the lift
  • Coming down the mountain... Rick getting the hang of it again after a 3 year absence from the snow...
  • Top of the hill Daily City - eeeh, Jackson. Awesome view - not so awesome ride down a nasty pitted out mogul field.
  • What a view, huh?
  • Rick getting more comfortable on the mountain on the last few days when there was actually some new snow coverage. Bump and jump...
  • If only the camera would work right - a slightly to early shot of Viggers dropping a nice boulder...
  • Viggers with a nice one hander off a cat track
  • The view was just to good to pass up... Hey it's a question not a statement!
  • What a view
  • Top of the hill for Viggers.
  • Coming of this little cliff - well, it didn't end all well <bg>...
  • I'm flying, I'm flying... flap, flap. Alright, alright - so it's been 3 years since I've done this, OK? <s>
  • A grand carve at Targhy. Cool pic with the slight snowy flakes coming down...
  • And another...
  • Viggers on the lift...
  • Taking a break in the middle of the run...
  • Viggers Rooster tailing it over the ridge. Unfortunately this was a little far away.
  • Viggers, coming down the mountain... Freshly groomed with light powder at Grand Thargee.
  • What the...
  • The underwear tree. Hard to see, but this tree was full of girls bras and undies... expensive excercise for some girls <bg>...
  • We're going in... getting adventurous on the last few days...
  • ... and promptly getting lost. The map wasn't much help being out of bounds.
  • At the end of the day. Tired but still all smiles in the parking lot...
  • At the ever so wonderful Wagon Wheel Inn... where one side (this one) of the room is a log cabin and the other raw drywall, ha ha...
  • Nightly entertainment... Elaine Devil appropriately with the bible handy!
  • It was literally biting cold outside <s>... Jackson's nightlife left a little to be desired.
  • Need we say anything more? It's fucking cold in this place!!!!
  • Viggers in happy mode at the bar at the Wheel.
  • Wyomigans love their cows. Even on the bead spread you can't get away from it!
  • High fashion statement. Coming in from a run in the outdoor hot tub. At -10 degrees even a 100 yards is adventurous.
  • First days out and about in the wilderness. On a cross country ski trip checking out the Grand Tetons
  • What a view!!! So beautiful...
  • Viggers at the beginning of the cross country trail. Good thing we picked an advanced intermediate trail for our first attempt at cross country skiiing barely making it back to the car before the light went out <s>...
  • One of the many lakes... very serene
  • Picnic break in the wilderness during the x-country trek.
  • Postcard anyone??? The other side from our picnic spot from the inside looking out <bg>...
  • Bridge bound - don't loose your balance now. If you're laughing just remember this was our first time on x-country skis.
  • Which way should we go?
  • Morgan and Lori tearing it up on the snowmobile <bg>...
  • Low Ri-der, drive a little slow... du du dup, dup dudn dudn...
  • Styling outfit for the snowmobile, huh?
  • Ouch!
  • Old Faithful. Bad day - grey on grey somehow doesn't work all that well.
  • Gorillas in the mist!
  • Winter wonderland at one of the parks.
  • Morgan and Lori at Lunch at Old Faithful. Morgan trying to show his faithfulness by hand signal - foiled by the mitten <g>...
  • How you doin????
  • Rick pretending the ski's a surfboard
