The Silver Dollar Bar and Grill…

My cousin and I tried to have dinner at the Silver Dollar Bar several days before I took these pictures, but there was a line.  That social distancing thing.  This time I had stopped in Jackson to find a bookstore, and after I shopped I realized that the bar was around the corner and I decided to try again.  My friends had visited this bar on vacation last year and enjoyed it.  And the description reminded me of someplace I went with Charley in 1992.  Is there only one bar out west with silver dollars embedded in the bar top?  Probably not, but I knew that he would have loved this one, so I decided to stop and have a beer.  It was lunch with Charley again, it’s been a while.  And this bar is located in the Wort Hotel, which is a gorgeous stop also.07-24-20worthotel107-24-20worthotel207-24-20silverdollarbaronionrings.jpg

If you stop there be sure to get the onion rings, they were the best ever!

Just a sight to see as you walk around Jackson…

This and that…

As you may have guessed, my cousin is a great tour guide.  If she ever visits me in Florida I won’t have nearly the number of places to take her for adventures.  I don’t get to sit with my computer online and plugged in like I did at home, so later I will notice pictures I meant to include in a post but didn’t.  Or I will think of something I meant to say about a photo after I already posted it.  Like this one from the ski resort.

That’s a little bit of snow nestled in a crevice there in the center.  a couple of Texas kids climbed down to some snow a lot closer to the trail than that one, and took great delight in throwing snowballs at their parents.  Of course they were excited, and therefore scaring me half to death, but their parents said that all they wanted to do on this trip was to see snow.  I also missed some other details from the resort.07-24-20flowers at the resort.jpg07-24-20hikedetailswithMary07-24-20totheresortrock.jpg

And there was a hike with Mary the day before also.07-24-20hikewithMary.jpg

This is musk thistle, and it’s invasive.  Mary wondered if they’d given up on getting rid of it because we’ve seen it everywhere we’ve been.07-24-20muskthistle

And if you ever find yourself heading from Jackson to the Grand Targhee ski resort you will pass through the town of Victor, ID, where it would behoove you to stop at the soda shop for a ‘world famous’ huckleberry milk shake.  Of course I got one, and yes it was good. 07-24-20victorspecial.jpg07-24-20victorspecial2

See the guy in the background drinking his own huckleberry milk shake?  He recommended it and then asked if I liked it and of course I told him I did.  He said that he comes over the Teton Pass just to get his favorite milk shake!  Now that’s a fan!

The feature photo is from the morning drive on the day of this hike with Mary.  It had stormed the night before and we didn’t expect much from the day.  But as I drove to Jackson the sky was beginning to show some promise.  It was hard to believe that those huge mountains were totally hidden when I started driving, and then they began to peek through.  And another glorious day ensued…
