… to “announce” that as part of my duties as editor of Teton Home and Living Magazine, I’ve started blogging for LifeInTheTetons.com. Yesterday I posted my first note there — the link will take you directly to “Striking Gold” — all about a litle road trip Peter and I took last weekend to Virginia City, Montana. Check it out! (This is one of the photos NOT posted elsewhere.)
I’m quite inspired by this spot. In fact, they hold two “grand balls” each summer and attending one of those — complete in garb from the 1860s — is looking like an addition to my very own personal “bucket list.” (Must admit I’ve never actually put something like that together, but the notion of dressing up and learning how to dance like they did in the Civil War — and doing it in a preserved historic setting — has a LOT of appeal!)
While you’re at the LifeInTheTetons site, be sure and see the REST of it, too; it’s a marvelous capsulization of Jackson Hole and Teton Valley, with helpful links to lots of other information about this area. And if you go to the TH&L page, you’ll see pieces from the last issue of the magazine, a commemorative of the publication’s first ten years, including a story I wrote several years ago (“Craftsman Built”).
