It is a great place to check out the total solar eclipse because it is directly in the path of the shadow. You can take the Jackson Hole Tram to see unforgettable sights of the spectacle. Think of the mountains and the scenery alight one moment and completely dark the next and the shadow passes, truly a breathtaking scene! The area also has activities such as rafting and hiking, so that you can enjoy the natural beauty of the area. Stay at the Snow King Hotel, and you will be spoiled with adventurous things to do while you wait for the big show. Summer in Jackson Hole is a special time!
