Jackson Hole Off-Season Adventures

The Realty Group of Jackson Hole team hit the road this spring to the far reaches of Europe and Down South to Cabo.

imagePart of the deal with calling Jackson Hole home is understanding that two times a year it gets very sleepy in Teton County. If combatting a long winter of cabin fever is in order, usually an exit plan is imperative. Here’s a snapshot of Rob, Jeff, Kelli, Jake and blogger Kathryn’s jaunts away from the old J-Hole.

Jeff and Kelli Ward have been hard at work all winter but Jeff in particular deserved a break from lots of physical therapy- trading in crutching around ice and snow for more favorable beach environs.
