At Jackson Hole ski resort in Wyoming it costs $25 to ride the Aerial Tram both ways. But it’s FREE to ride down … if you hike up.
Via the Summit Trail that’s 7.2mi (11.6km)
At the start, I was still super energetic.
I hope this isn’t an old Tram … that fell.
End of August, some of the wildflowers are still hanging on.
Finally, Top of the World:
Other hikers agreed that it’s MUCH more challenging than we expected. The 4,139ft (2600m) elevation gain is compounded by lack of oxygen. Top of the World is 10450ft (3185 m).
I saw no wildlife other than one marmot, and some pikas. A bear was spotted from the Tram earlier in the day.
