Halloweens past

Six years ago, we spent Halloween with our friends Wes and Deidra in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. As we came in for a landing on October 30, the sun was out and it looked toasty on the tarmac.

When we stepped off the plane, I was happy I'd packed my L.L. Bean winter jacket and insulated gloves. The sun was out and felt good upon our shoulders but the wind was harsh.

Our hosts rented an SUV and we toured the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone.

We dodged bison and dinner'ed at a place the locals recommended. I don't remember the name but it was delightful.

The next morning, I looked out the window of the resort as the coffee brewed. It looked like a winter wonderland. 

Not to worry, the SUV took us where we wanted to go.

When we got back to the lodge, all the staff and other guests were dressed for Halloween. Jilda and I didn't come prepared for that, but we did bring our guitars.

We played for hours in front of a rock fireplace while other guests sipped wine and ate trick or treat candy.



  1. That sounds good - and looks amazing.

  2. You gave the others a marvelous treat. It must have been a good time for all.

  3. That sounds like it was a wonderful time. I like the idea that you played music. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  4. What a great memory of Halloween to treasure. No need to have a costume the the real you sufficed better than well enough.

  5. I loved Jackson Hole when we were there many years ago. It was in the summer but I bet it's beautiful all year! Great memories spent with good friends and music...belated Happy Halloween to you and Jilda!
