Jackson Hole has its fair share of recurring events. The Teton County Fair, the Halloween pumpkin sale, the Pole, Pedal, Paddle and other signature events come and go predictably.
Some may see a certain ground hog day repetitiveness in the valley calendar, while others find comfort in routine.
At the News&Guide, photographers do not discriminate between predicted and unpredictable events. We try and capture stories as they happen and reveal details some might miss or take people to places they never planned to go.
Through our lenses, we showcase wildfires at the edge of town, geysers in Yellowstone National Park in the dead of winter or Jackson as seen from the tip an airplane wing.
At first glance, the mountains, meadows, wildlife and rivers make Jackson Hole special, but the people who live in the valley have their own character.
It’s a special privilege when they let us into their worlds so we can share their stories. Most people are surprised to learn how much they share with their neighbors.
