Downtown Jackson Scarf

image

Downtown Jackson, Wyoming is a place like no other. Before 1800, the only people who traveled into Jackson Hole were the Shoshoni, Crow, Blackfeet, Bannock, and Gros Ventre, all Native American tribes. Today three major ski areas have made Jackson Hole world famous for excellent skiing and winter sports, while the downtown area caters to an upscale tourist trade.
This cozy, bulky cabled scarf, knit with 100% super wash wool, trimmed with faux fur is the perfect choice for a day of winter shopping in Jackson Hole. Pictured on “Slim” who guards the Jackson Hole Museum, by artist Georgia Bunn.
