Recruitment season is here!
Do you want to get into incredible shape, increase your confidence, gain 20 new friends, and learn a killer sport? Joining the Jackson Hole Juggernauts Roller Derby league as either a referee or a skater will do all of that and more. Come out and meet the team, drink some beers (on us), eat some snacks, and learn about the sport during our final recruitment night - Wednesday, October 25th 6:30 pm at Wildlife Brewing in Victor, ID. For potential refs and potential skaters, recruitment nights will be followed by “try-it” nights in which you can borrow gear, learn the basics, and see what you think. Our league works with each individual to develop them as a skater and to develop their knowledge of the game. So, no matter where you are physically or mentally with regard to roller derby, you CAN become a skater or ref! JOIN US!
I’ve been prepping some of my Wyoming images for an upcoming show, starting in December. This is one that I believe will make the cut! It was one of the most insane sunsets I’ve ever witnessed during my few days at Devils Tower.
Another fun season in the books gigging in and around Wyoming! Time to finish up the @bo.elledge EP. Y’all stay tuned for my first ever album dropping in January.

Work in progress: can't wait to unveil all that is happening behind these (book-covered) doors! We just kicked off our remodel today, we'll reopen our doors in a few weeks' time. Thanks to @creativecuriosityjh for our temporary door cover to hide the beautiful mess!
Bull elk along the Madison River are still bugling as the mating season winds down. We found this one with a large herd of females yesterday as part of our multiday with @greateryellowstone. #myjhecotour
One of my friends @godivyam and I went backcountry camping in the Tetons during our time there. We had originally planned to hike through the cascade canyon to lake solitude, and make our way back through paintbrush divide. Unfortunately, paintbrush divide was completely covered in snow, and even the path to lake solitude was covered in knee deep snow. However, hiking through cascade canyon (pictured here) was very rewarding nevertheless!
Yellowstone national park is a must-see, only two hours away from our stay in Jackson Hole. But we ate and drank and slept in and never made it. High five Jackson! 🙌🏽 Repost from our log @okhoneytravel
I’ve been stuck at the airport in Casper alllllll day and honestly I’ve been pretty freaking pissed. 8+ hours in a regional airport, no food, no entertainment. Not great.
BUT because we are in a small regional airport the staff ordered pizza for everyone, they called the bar owner and told her to come back, they were kind and caring despite a totally shitty situation. YOU GUYS. That’s why I love communities.
I sat and chatted with strangers. Got hit on by a dude with no teeth. Joked with a couple who made fun of my socks with sandals. And it was good for my soul. It was people, coming together, enjoying what there was to enjoy in good freaking company.
Some days I forget the things that make my heart pitter patter, and then life dishes up a healthy reminder. I’m thankful to be from this weirdo, rectangle state of ours. I’m grateful for people who still care about people and strangers who make regional airports not feel so bad. ❤️
It’s the infamous Moulton Barn at dawn! I have to say though, this sunrise was not a very enjoyable experience. Sure, it was beautiful to see, but being one of the most photographed locations in the Tetons, there were a bunch of photographers there. These photographers complained about the conditions, critiqued my gear, yelled at each other, and two people almost got in a fight! This was all in the span of about oh, I don’t know - 20 mins of my time here. I was appalled and it left a very bad taste in my mouth. I was glad to find that the photographers at the other barn were much much more friendly. Although, I ran into this type of behavior a few times on my trip a few weeks ago and even though I had seen this before, this time was different. People seemed to be concerned only about getting THE shot and almost angry that there were actually other people who wanted to photograph the scenes - oh, and that nature isn’t always perfect for that perfect photo. To these people I have to say GET A GRIP and that if conditions aren’t pristine, well, figure it out...
Grizzlies have made an impressive recovery in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and were recently delisted from the Endangered Species List. We’re currently out exploring Yellowstone on a multiday with our friends @greateryellowstone discussing challenges in keeping this Ecosystem whole, including keystone species like this grizzly sow and cub viewed on a tour last week. 📷@joshmettenphoto
Did you know that #Wyoming is home to 27,000 miles of world class rivers and streams as well as 4,200 lakes? No matter where you are in Wyoming, you’re not far from the perfect place to cast a line. 📸: @visitlaramie #ThatsWY
Today marks the end of our 2017 season, and what a season it was. Today, we're taking some time to reflect on all of the indelible memories that were made across our 30,000 acres. It's our heartfelt passion to share this special place with others, and we're so thankful to all of our guests that gave us that unique opportunity. And of course, we'd be remiss if we didn't thank our incredible seasonal staff - thank you, team, for delivering our mission day in and day out. We hope to see you all again next year.
Mark your calendars for May 17, 2018 - next season's opening day! We look forward to seeing you then.
