HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Maybe it's the old West flavor or the towering Tetons or the tall buttes surrounding the town, but Jackson Hole, Wyoming feels like my second home.

Of course, it could also be because I set my New Heights Series in this quaint mountain village. Even though this is only my second visit, I've spent months in this place (okay, it was only in my imagination, but still.) When we stopped here on our trip out west, we decided to spend a few days just soaking in the wonderful small town flavor.

I visited the terrific people at the Crisis Pregnancy Center (which Saving Grace centers around), introduced myself to the owner of Cottage Christian Bookstore and visited several places mentioned in my books.

We enjoyed the rodeo, whitewater rafting, and creek stomping, and my family loved the place as much as I do. Sometimes you just connect with a place, know what I mean?

I LOVE Jackson Hole. We spent a week there on vacation last summer...in luxurious accomodations -- we stayed in a friend's condo at Snow King Resort.

It was wonderful how it cooled off at night, and the air was clean, and the views were gorgeous. Ahhh, wish I was there now!

Our friends that we stayed with last summer (it was actually her parent's condo) loved it so much that they built a vacation home in Idaho, just over the Tetons from Jackson. They are spending the whole summer there this year.

We stayed at Snow King too, Sally. Kevin told them I mentioned Snow King in Saving Grace and they upgraded us to the condo. That was an unexpected surprise!

Great picture, Denise! Jackson Hole sounds like a fun place. And how great that the resort upgraded you to a condo! WOW!

The best I can get out of my next book is a bottle of syrup. ;-)
