Imagine watching the sunrise over Blacktail Butte as the sun’s rays illuminate the Grand Tetons at the start of a new day. As anyone who has been in a hot air balloon knows, it is an incredibly peaceful way to interact with your surroundings. Your perspective of this vast valley becomes entirely different. Here in Jackson Hole, there is so much to see from above.
The meandering Snake River – It is the thirteenth longest river in the United States, spanning almost 108,000 square miles. The Lewis and Clark Expedition from 1804–1806 was the first American group to cross the Rocky Mountains and sail down the Snake and Columbia rivers to reach the Pacific Ocean.
The Teton Mountain Range – Instead of looking up at them from the valley, you are looking down on them! You might be lucky enough to see an elk herd – Most likely a treat to see in the fall, Jackson Hole has animals everywhere so don’t forget your binoculars!
