As if Grand Teton National Park was not grand enough in its own right, it just so happens to have one of the great National Park gateway towns right on its doorstep: Jackson. Sure, it's touristy and a bit overblown but Jackson is full of not only amenities but also lots of wild west charm even if in a Disney kind of way. As the hub of not only the two National Parks to the north of it, but also the National Elk Refuge literally on top of it and countless ski resorts that make it a year round destination. While trinket shops litter its western-style covered walkways they are interspersed with many fine shops offering the best in outdoor gear and clothing. Restaurants for all budgets do well in the rare tourist town with no real off-season. Jackson is a prosperous little town and a pleasant one too. Oh, did I forget to mention it is home to one of the top brewpubs in the Rockies? Hop on over to Jackson for a meal, a trinket, or even just a beer. The Tetons will still be there when you get back.

    Jackson looks like a nice little place to stop-over in for a while! That arch of elk antlers looks really impressive. Glad the two of you enjoyed your few days in civilization with some beers and great food!

    Never made it to Jackson though we sampled (I think) some Teton and (definitely) some Snake River brews elsewhere in Wyoming :-) Would love an afternoon on the Snake River patio and the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar sounds fun too!

    Another great new page with fine photos and interesting texts. I like your systematic and detailed evaluations of the different kinds of beer. Good that you had a designated driver for the drive back over the pass.

    With all the great beers here, I guess it was not that easy to stay over night at the park ;-)

    Great new page! Jackson looks like a nice town in which to get cleaned up. Sounds like you did some good research at the Snake River Brewing Patio.

    Oh I am first visitor :-)) Haha, love your title, hop to the hops... These elk arches are funny, and who dusts them? Lol... Looks like a fun place with enough great beer supply, and was it real truffles? Do they also grow there?
