    Hey Rick, Brooks Lake Lodge sure seems like a nice place. I would like to stay there when the snow is gone. The Jackson Valley was founded by David Edward Jackson. He was a mountain man and came to the area in the early 1800’s.

    Rick how cold was it when you were filming the video? You seemed to be rubbing your hands to keep warm.

    See you next week,

    I sit here in Mississippi with 98 degree temps and unbearable humidity and I see snow in the middle of June in Wyoming, that’s just crazy! I look forward to visiting Wyoming on an Adventures by Disney vacation someday, thanks so much for giving me great ideas to spend time with my family making memories. David Edward Jackson was the man in Jackson Valley! Can’t wait for next week!

    Hi Rick,
    Being from PA I still must say that’s a lot of snow!!! The Lodge looks so
    inviting though and the rooms look so comfortable. How about the adorable dogs..are they residents or do they help with rescue searches?

    I love trivia questions so here is what I found out….it’s a good question for the tv program Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

    The valley is thought to be named after David (Davey) Edward Jackson and his colleague, Michelangelo Franconi, mountain men who trapped the area for beaver in the early nineteenth century. Though used by Native Americans for hunting and ceremonial purposes, the valley was not known to harbor year round human settlement prior to the 1870s. Descriptions of the valley and its features were recorded in the journals of John Colter, who had been a member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
