After a short summer shower, a rainbow binds earth and sky across the Teton Valley's rich rolling farmland near Driggs, Idaho, a tiny town--one stop light--just across Teton Pass from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Don't be fooled by this pastoral scene. There's world class snow skiing, climbing and hiking in the Tetons, fly fishing in the river by the same name and whitewater rafting on the nearby Snake.
I spent one hundred nights in a yurt near this farm field at the foot of the Teton Range. The modest dwelling was my home while working as a transportation coordinator for the National Outdoor Leadership School, the world's largest outdoor education organization.
