Last weekend, Miles and I had another getaway—two in one month, can you believe it? After an unexpectedly busy Friday, when we put an offer on a house we saw just that morning, we took off. We drove up to Jackson Hole. It was my first time in Wyoming or Idaho. It was beautiful but there sure was a whole lot of nothin’!
Jackson Hole was a lot of fun. It was a perfect location for a cozy and relaxing weekend. Since we went in the off season there weren’t many activities to do. We were just free to be together with no responsibilities.
While in college I lived with some roommates in a basement apartment of an older home. I got to know the elderly man who live next door. He name was Clark. I’d help him take his garbage can in, cut his hair, and sometimes I’d get some friends to come with me to visit him. Miles even came a couple times. Clark had a famous picture on his wall of a barn with the Grand Tetons in the background like this one.
He told us that’s where he grew up and that was his barn—the most photographed barn ever. He was an older man with some good stories. We were a little skeptical.
Well, while in Jackson we asked a man at the visitor center how we could find this barn. And I asked if he new by chance who owned the barn. He told us where to find it and that it belonged the Moulton family. Well Moulton was Clark’s last name. And there was even a quote from Clark in a brochure about growing up on Mormon Row there at the foot of the Tetons. So Clark must have had the best view in the world as a boy.
Here we are visiting Clark’s family farm.
This is my favorite picture from the trip. This will be hanging in our bathroom of our new house someday!
