history bookJackson Hole, originally called Jackson's Hole, is a valley located in the U.S. state of Wyoming, near the western border with Idaho. The name "hole" derives from language used by early trappers or mountain men, who primarily entered the valley from the north and east and had to descend along relatively steep slopes, giving the sensation of entering a hole. These low-lying valleys are surrounded by mountains and contain rivers and streams, which were good habitat for beaver and other fur-bearing animals.

The town square in Jackson had large elk antler arches that curved over the square's four corner entrances (see the two RV Gypsies under the arches in the photos below). The antlers have been there since the early 1960s, and new arches are assembled to replace them when necessary. One of the original arches sits in a vacant lot on the way into town. Antlers are solid and fall off of animals naturally and the animals grow new sets every year. This contrasts with horns, which have to be sawed off but then are hollow.

Across the street from the town square is the iconic Million Dollar Cowboy Bar.
