Hi everyone,
Bennie, Gabrielle, and I visited Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

We three had the time of our lives in Jackson Hole. We stayed at the lovely Snow King Resort, went sightseeing in Jackson Hole, and whitewater rafting on its Snake River. That was the first time that either of us had been whitewater rafting. The experience was thrilling, as the raft crested the waves. We three could not stop talking about that different and wonderful experience. That evening, we went to Bar J Wranglers Chuck Wagon ranch, a live working cowboy ranch, and ate dinner out of cowboy tin plates. Then we listened to the cowboys’ concert. They sang country western music, and we loved it all, especially the short, somewhat heavy set cowboy, with the deep bass voice who thrilled us all, when it was his time to sing alone.

As for Bennie, Gabrielle, and me, Jackson Hole was thrilling, and white-water rafting was the most thrilling of all.
