7x7 | Wild West Rx: Big country meets tiny homes at a tony Jackson Hole sporting club
The unassuming mountain town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming has been solidly on my radar this year—Instagram pictures of rugged wilderness and the cowboy lifestyle beckoned my city-dwelling self. I, too, wanted to put on flannel and boots and experience a slice of the Old West, a way of life so very opposite of the "look-how-busy-I-am" one we live here in the Bay Area.
It's this very unpretentiousness that has made Jackson Hole the refuge of choice for urban folk and celebrities for years. Sandra Bullock and Harrison Ford own homes there. Pippa Middleton has been spotted getting down in a country bar. And this past summer, Kanye West, who often comes to this part of the country for creative inspiration, jetted in members of the media for a listening party at a remote ranch. This is all to say that people are feeling Jackson Hole's vibe right now.
