What’s your favorite way to spend a spring day in Jackson?

I would spend the day in a drift boat fly fishing on one of Jackson’s many rivers and waterways. My favorite place to fish is the South Fork of the Snake River because of the wide variety of trout species: Browns, Rainbows, and Cutthroats. My fiancé and I love packing a lunch, bringing our pup, and casually floating down the river, stopping to get out to stretch our legs or taking a quick dip in the cold water.

What’s the favorite place you’ve traveled to and why?

My favorite place I have travelled to is Thailand, where I spent two weeks exploring various cities immersed in Thai culture. Highlights included spending three nights at an elephant sanctuary in Chiang Mia, snorkeling and exploring the beautiful beaches of Phuket, hiking the Pai Canyon, and visiting the Wat Pho Temple in Bangkok. The trip was both relaxing and engaging.
