Fall colors in the Jackson Hole area are expected to be particularly vibrant.
Jackson Hole, Wyoming (PRWEB) August 28, 2017
September in the Jackson Hole area offers visitors a spectacular array of cultural activities and outdoor adventures. Brooks Lake Lodge & Spa, a historical all-inclusive guest lodge near Dubois, Wyoming, recently announced its top 4 reasons for making the trip to the West during the late summer/fall season.
As summer crowds dwindle after Labor Day, the region embraces a more laid-back mood along with deep appreciation for Wyoming’s abundant beauty from the art-lined streets of Jackson to the radiant foliage in the surrounding mountains and along the Snake River. Proving it has the inside track on how to make the most of the state’s popular autumn season, Brooks Lake Lodge & Spa offers these recommendations:
1. Go fish: Wyoming’s fly fishing is legendary, and the Jackson Hole area with its plentiful wild country and numerous rivers, streams and alpine lakes offers the crème de la crème. Whether using drift boats or waders, anglers can catch a variety of species of the wily trout, while fall’s warm dry weather and perfect outdoor adventure temperatures make it an ideal season for casting a line. Brooks Lake Lodge’s fly fishing opportunities – just one of the included activities at the exclusive, all-inclusive guest ranch – offer guided backcountry excursions to blue ribbon fishing, complete with gear for an easy fisherman’s getaway. For special pricing, the Lodge has created a Frequent Fly-ers package, available through Sept. 13.
2. True colors: With plentiful rainfall this past summer, fall colors in the Jackson Hole area are expected to be particularly vibrant, with the peak usually occurring by mid-September. The Teton Range, Yellowstone and surrounding areas have large stands of deciduous trees whose leaves blaze mostly yellow and orange (and occasionally red) shades in the fall. Cottonwoods line the banks of the Snake River and other waterways, while Aspens are found on hillsides and scattered throughout moist areas. Numerous species of willows and shrubs transform lake and canyon trails into yellow and red carpets, while the not-too-hot, not-too-cold weather and numerous trails make autumn a perfect time to take a hike. At Brooks Lake Lodge, guided and unguided hikes into the surrounding Shoshone National Forest ensure leaf-peeping at its best.
3. State of the Art: Boasting more than 50 activities, many of them free, the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival, Sept. 6 – 17, 2017, feeds visitors’ creative appetites with a wealth of art-related functions in and around Jackson, Wyoming. Events include witnessing dozens of artists crafting 90-minute masterpieces on the lawn of Jackson’s famous town square and sampling the area’s finest culinary creations at an open-air tasting fair, as well as exciting art auctions, stay-open-late gallery walks, national museum parties, and home and ranch tours of some of the finest residences in the valley. Bonus tip: check out Brooks Lake Lodge’s special Fall Arts Festival Day Out package for a unique combination of town and country experiences.
4. Best of the West: Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, The Western Design Conference Exhibit + Sale (WDC), Sept. 7 – 10, 2017, welcomes more than 130 juried artists, craftsmen, fashion and interior designers from around the country sharing a passion for showcasing the finest quality functional creations that capture the spirit of the West. A one-of-a-kind experience where guests can shop the museum-quality art, the four-day celebration also offers sophisticated renditions of “cowboy couture” jewelry and apparel and an exhibit of the finest examples of handcrafted home furnishings, as well as a six-room Designer Show House and a Retail Row. Brooks Lake Lodge’s Fall Arts Festival Day Out package includes complimentary passes to the WDC Exhibit + Sale.
