Top 5 Places to Eat in Jackson Hole

I’m a story teller. I usually like to use my blog to record my memories and tell the stories of the places my kids and I visit. I’m not usually a reviewer, and I occasionally give tips. But this trip we had some of the best food, and it surprised me that it was mostly…
