A Grand Adventure in the West-Snake River Lodge and Spa

By on August 1, 2011

By Prudence Lay, Feature Editor –

The state of Wyoming contains some of the most spectacular and diverse scenery in America. Some of the most awe-inspiring views are to be found in the area in and around Jackson.

I was a young girl of 14 when I first visited this area and I remember it was the first time in my life that my jaw literally dropped at the majesty of God’s creation. As an adult, I have visited the area several times and never tire of the breathtaking vistas of “God’s Country” as many of the locals call their home.
