... Hatchery and the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Of the two, the girls enjoyed the fish hatchery the most. They had fish anywhere from a few months old to several years old, including a fishing pond where they put their "retired" breeding stock after they have passed their prime. The guide there indicated that there were Cuthroat trout there up to 30inches long! We couldn’t see many of them because the water was too choppy.
... wolf was definitely a highlight of the day and we retired satisfied and ready to move on, out of this horrendous weather (it was snowing heavily in addition to the rain and hail). I definitely think yellowstone is a park worth going to but the weather definitely affected our whole experience. If I was to compare both the Rocky Mountains and yellowstone, I would have to say that both are as good as each other. If you want good hiking trails, the Rocky Mountains is your park and ...
... and formed Taggert Lake. Bradley Lake (elevation 7,022 feet) is fed by a stream from Garnet Canyon, which originates from a glacier next to Middle Teton approximately 5,000 feet above. Unfortunately, the trails were covered in snow, so students were only able to hike to Taggert Lake, but some groups were able to view Bradley from above.
Today, students learned that the Teton Mountains are the youngest range in the country. ...
... with an orthopedist in Jackson for Wednesday to have him looked at. We are treating Wednesday as a refresh day as we need to have the camper's electrical system looked at, and need to re-stock groceries, etc. The other modification was that we decided not to camp Tuesday night. The overnight forecast was in the low 40's and with no heat and no electricity it was clear that the family needed a night off from 'roughing it. It has been 6 nights since we left the Erickson's so ...
... of our previous trips. No beaver this time but some people came paddling past and told us there was a mother moose with her young back over there.
They did not give exact directions but we were able to find them after finishing lunch. It was so cute/divineorder? to see them. They were together under an arbor looking grouping of vegetation. They were well camouflaged and could very easily been missed if we had not known to be looking for them.

Historical Traveler Reviews Elk Country Inn Jackson
Simple it is to close to all the downtown noise and bars. Got no sleep.
Great place to stay
We stayed 10 nights at the Elk Country Inn in March 2006 and would recommend it unreservedly. We got an excellent deal - less than $70 a night and found the staff there all very helpful. We stayed in the hotel style rooms in a totally non-smoking block - it's so great not to have to smell smoke in the corridors. The room was large and bright with 2 queens, a fridge, coffeemaker and microwave and was kept very clean. Fresh fruit is available every morning at reception - what a nice change from doughnuts! There are also regular free shuttles to Teton Village morning and evening which saves the drive particularly when it's snowing hard. The Inn is very well situated both for the centre of town and for the shopping on the southern outskirts which is just a short drive away.
Nice little place
We stayed at this hotel recently while in Jackson to attend a wedding. Our room was fairly large with two queen beds, a table and two chairs, a small fridge and microwave. The room was clean and everything was in working order. The location is great as you can walk everywhere but it is not directly in the hustle and bustle of downtown. We did not use the hottub but other family members loved it! The office offers coffee and fruit in the morning and the staff are friendly and helpful. I would definately stay at this hotel again.
Good value for Jackson
It is a pretty good hotel, really. We had nothing to complain about. For what you get, it's a bit expensive, but from what I gather everything in Jackson is hyperinflated.
Would probably stay here again.
We stayed in one of their hotel rooms with 2 queen beds. The room was clean, with a microwave, small refridgerator, and sink. The front desk workers were very helpful, giving us suggestions on where to eat. They have a computer set up in the front lobby set up for the internet if you want to surf free. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay.
Convenient and clean cabin
We stayed at the Elk Country Inn in one of their cabins. We found it very clean and convenient. We stayed 3 nights in August with a 4-year old and an 8-year old. We made breakfast 2 mornings in the kitchenette and ate on the porch picnic table. The hanging pot of flowers and the view of the hotel "park-ette" made it a pleasant spot. My term "park-ette" refers to a grassy area where guests can picnic, play with their dogs, watch their kids on the playground equipment, etc.... I don't think alll units face this area. (I think dogs are allowed in only some motel units and not in the cabins.) We did have to look past our own car to view this area but it was still nice even with the strip of parking lot around it. The cabins are not in the historic downtown area but it is an easy walk down Pearl Street to the "square" area and we walked to dinner or ice cream every evening. The staff was helpful with restaurant suggestions and when our child locked us out during breakfast. It was nice having two rooms each with their own TV... the kids can watch Cartoon Network while the adults can watch something else. (Note: the wall dividing the two rooms is not all the way up to the triangular peak... the inner wall is the same height as the outer side walls so it provided some privacy but not as sound-proof as a complete wall would have been.) Each room is not large but adequate for a family of 4 and their luggage. Seemed like a good value in Jackson.
Very nice place to stay
We stayed here for 4 nights while touring Jackson and the Tetons. We had a room with 3 queen beds (one was in a loft area). Room included a fridge, counter/sink area, microwave, and toaster. The kids (13/16) loved the loft. The folks who run the hotel were very pleasant both on the phone and in person. Free internet access in the lobby was a nice surprise. Close to everything but not right in the middle of the bustle (a good thing). Highly recommended for families!
Really great for a family of 4
I spent a good deal of time researching where to stay in Jackson and choose the Elk Country Inn Cabins. We stayed in the two room "cabin" here for a total of four nights, the first and last part of our trip with 5 nights in Yellowstone in between. The rooms were very clean and nicely appointed. There was a separate living room with sofa bed and two double beds in the bedroom. Two televisions, great when you have two children. The kids liked sleeping in the sofabed and watching their own television. We paid about $112 a night, still the off season rate and a very good value. My seven year old loved the large hot tub. We always had the 8 person capacity to ourselves. Within walking distance to a vareity of restraunts includuing Bubba's, a lot of food for the money and kid friendly. Staff friendly and helpful. Free internet access in the small lobby. Would definatly stay here again.
Great place to stay!
We had a great experience at this hotel. The room was large, clean and the staff is very friendly. We had one minor problem with a TV being too loud and the staff addressed that immediately. The location and rates are very good. I would highly recommed this hotel.
Cozy cabin/Friendly Service/Good value!
We stayed in one of the log cabins at the Elk Country Inn right before Christmas. Service was friendly & courteous and room rates were reasonable -- especially given the fact that we were within walking distance of the down town shops. Jackson has become a pricey little town, but the countryside and ambiance is worth it!
