My stay in Jackson Hole: Part 2

5-Mile Run at Emily's Pond Levee, Snake River Dike, Jackson Hole, Wyoming

A RIVER RUN & DINNER

Picking up where we left off in My Stay in Jackson Hole: Part 1, after smoothies & sunbathing, we geared up for an afternoon run before dinner.

It ended up being my fastest 5-miler ever, according to RunKeeper! Naturally, we celebrated with some good eats.

SNAKE RIVER DIKE

Not a bad view, right? This was the scenery of our 5-mile afternoon run at Emily’s Pond Levee (at Snake River Dike) in Jackson Hole. It was about 60 degrees, breezy, and downright beautiful.

Sarah 5 Mile Run at Snake River in Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Sarah was a lacrosse player for 10 years and runs crazy-fast miles, and I asked her to push me on our run, after a long day of traveling. I ended up running my fastest 4-6 mile run ever. Thanks, Sarah!

Run Splits

Look at those splits! We left feeling energized and ready for food.

THE LOCAL

After showering (and drying my hair with the world’s slowest blowdryer…), we headed to The Local Restaurant & Bar for a casual night out.

Next came, the ever-delicious Crispy Brussels Spouts with Bacon Vinaigrette. This dish was divine!

Next, came the Wild Mushroom and Spinach Lasagna… which was not what I expected. It was baked in a cast-iron bowl, but tasted far too saucy, rich, and hearty. I thought it was going to be on the lighter side.

Bison and mashed potatoes at The Local Restaurant, Jackson Hole, Wyoming

What pleasantly surprised me was the Seared Buffalo Medallions! Coffee-rubbed tenderloin over a bed of truffled mashed potatoes and huckleberry demi-glace. Hot damn, it was delicious. I haven’t been eating much meat, but I figured Jackson Hole is the place to do it. Good choice!
