Jackson, Wyoming is a heavenly playground for any outdoor enthusiast. Within spitting distance of Grand Teton National Park, five national forests, wilderness areas and the Snake River, it leaves locals and visitors many acres to explore. Jackson sits in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, one of the last and largest relatively intact ecosystems in the temperate zone on earth. The seasons are stunning, the mountains views breathtaking, and the wildlife unmatched. It leaves something to be celebrated that a land like this still exists.
