Hotel decorated in a rustic theme. Went to a chuck wagon dinner and cowboy singing group. They fed 600 people in 15 minutes! Loved the show.
Started our sunny for our mild and smooth 12 person raft ride 10 miles down the Snake River. Went from a level 1 to 3 on a range of 5. Got off and had rain, hail, thunder, lightning, and wind. Luckily we were the fist of 4 rafts. Not usually like this but had more snow and more run off. Jackson Hole, WY, got 600 inches instead of the usual 450.
