Jackson
Wyoming


Jackson was once a farming-ranching supply town. But now it is world-class destination, with an airport, ski resort, upscale frontier-style shops, and expensive second homes. Heavy traffic and crass commercialism clash unpleasantly with the natural experience that many visitors to the nearby national parks and mountain wildernesses seek. Unsightly development now spills beyond the original town area into mountain meadows and sagebrush slopes.
