TRAVEL // ROAD TRIP Winter Out West: Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Something about the crispness of winter fits in perfectly with the cold, clear air of the American West. We’re dreaming of still, snowy mountains, a warm cabin, rich Native American tapestries, and a wide open sky. First in our series of Winter Out West is Jackson Hole, Wyoming, home to one of our super cool retailers MADE. We chose some items from MADE that we’d want on our winter adventures.

1 // Traveler’s “Explore” Lined Journals























This is a perfectly simple, lightweight journal to track your adventures. (note: If you write down very private thoughts, be sure and keep it well hidden. Your sister and boyfriend will find it on the family road trip.) Use this to write down places, names of the folks you met along the way, and the inspiration that will inevitably result from the surreal atmosphere of the West.

2 // Sandblasted Bronco Coffee Mug
























Somehow there are never enough cups and mugs in a rented cabin. Buying a set of these retro, fun mugs will simultaneously solve the mysterious cup shortage and provide a cool souvenir.

3 // Felted Pouch with Medic Cross
























This catch-all bag could provide a fitting use for the medic cross on its front. You can use this to carry essentials during a day hike or out on the slopes. The felt material makes it durable against snow and moisture.

4 // National Parks Flask
























There will inevitably be a campfire, and there will inevitably be a call for some combination of s’mores and liquor. This flask will be your best friend on a cold winter’s night.

The building that MADE is in looks like a cozy winter village. Anytime we’re in the vicinity of Jackson Hole, this will be the first stop on our list. Next week, look for Winter Out West part 2 in Bozeman, Montana.
