Itinerary

Day 9: Jackson
Friday, July 16, 2021
Spot for wildlife outside before taking a private, docent-guided tour of the National Museum of Wildlife Art. It's situated on a distinct cliff overlooking the National Elk Refuge. Enter the museum to view selections of the 5,000-piece collection from more than 550 artists. Dating from 2500 B.C. to the present, the collection chronicles much of the history of wildlife in art, focusing primarily on European and American painting and sculpture. The collection of American art from the 19th and 20th centuries is particularly strong, recording European exploration of the American West. Many of these works predate photography, making them vital representations of the frontier era in the history of the U.S. 

During leisure time, explore downtown Jackson's shops and restaurants or relax and enjoy the various amenities at the Rustic Inn's resort and spa. 
Overnight: Rustic Inn at Jackson Hole Creekside Resort and Spa

Set out on a three-hour adventure, beginning at Pritchard Creek, floating past nesting areas of bald eagles and ospreys. Early morning is watering time—and the best viewing time—for native fauna along the river, such as waterfowl, moose, deer, and river otters. Make sure to bring your camera to capture the beautiful scenery and active wildlife.
