WLM Fall and Holiday 2015 - Page 19

WLM | home My family owned a ranch here from 1959 until 1996. As a kid, I enjoyed riding the tractor with Charlie Parsons while he cut hay with a sickle bar mower. There was little traffic and few strangers. There were just a couple restaurants where ranch hands mostly had pie and coffee after a long day’s work. I sometimes lament the loss of those simpler times. But that was a hard existence, with limited opportunities for gainful employment or quality entertainment. I live here because I can make a good living as a responsible real estate agent. I enjoy helping people find and make a home here. I have also loved helping old time residents sell their properties and harvest their gains. My contribution to the growth of Jackson can be offset by my work protecting wildlife habitat. I am a founding member of the Wyoming Nature Conservancy, and I am involved in a project to preserve land along Flat Creek. I can listen to E.O. Wilson, my favorite naturalist and philosopher, speak at the Center for the Arts. I can see remarkable new films at the Wildlife Film Festival. I can float and fish the Snake River, which is still an incredible wild fishery with native cutthroat trout. I can ride my bike along our new pathways from town to Jenny Lake. And all the while, I can enjoy the company of great friends that remain in Jackson, and those that are newly drawn to this remarkable valley. If owning a beautiful log home in the midst of a year-round outdoor mecca is on your wish list, and you find Jackson calling to you as it does to me, this Rivermeadows home can turn your dream into a reality.
