7-2-09 Ranch Along the Tetons #702

Ranch Along The Tetons #702
Oil on linen on quarter inch Baltic Birch
Size 9x16
Three weeks ago I was in Jackson Hole Wyoming and found this ranch north of town. All the ranches north of Jackson are part of an open space reserve for bison, elk and other large animals that are easily spotted roaming around. I wondered what this ranch must of been like back in the 1930's. I have a hard time with Jackson Hole because it is such a tourist trap. Nothing of the old days seems to remain except for the elk horns piled up in the park.
