David’s Insight on “Pioneer”
Dating back to the early 1900’s, this abandoned homestead is a well-preserved example of a western farming community. Nestled in the shadows of the Grand Teton Mountain Range, the untamed fields of the vast open plains conjure the indomitable pioneer spirit of the first settlers in the area of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Just imagine traveling for weeks over rugged terrain in covered wagons, all your belongings and a few animals in tow, to reach this open plain in the shadow of the great mountain range. Building a homestead from scratch, attempting to transform the land for farming and ultimately survival. Seems daunting indeed. This area is now designated Grand Teton National Park, and a visit truly connects you to the past..
