From the DEC/JAN Zephyr: (From the Zephyr Archives) Losing Solitude: MOUNTAIN RANGERS AT JACKSON HOLE…by Martin Murie

An excerpt:

At the crest of Teton Pass there used to be a big wooden sign with a black silhouette of a big-hatted cowboy pointing east into the valley. The sign read: Yonder is Jackson Hole, the Last of the Old West.The sign is no longer there and the valley is no longer the last of the old west. Even back then a more apt “last of the old west” could have been posted outside Elko, Nevada (sheep and cattle ranching), or Kemmerer, Wyoming (coal mining), or Butte, Montana (copper), or many another western settlement.
