Dateline August 26, 2009 Jackson Hole Wyoming
Today's Theme: Western Majesty
This morning starts with breakfast at the resort and then we are on our own for the rest of the morning.
Lunch today is at the Jackson Hole Playhouse, an old fashioned theatre.
After lunch it's time for the Snake River and Whitewater Rafting! The Snake River has Class 2 and 3 rapids.
Next we are on our own to explore Jackson Hole for the rest of the afternoon, dinner and evening.
Enjoy Today's Photos (remember we are on Mountain time) :

After lunch, Mike Newell writes: "Heading out for white water rafting. My fortune is buried in the backyard if i don't return."
The adventure begins... and we are dry.. for now.
Not so much dry now....
Our guide Daniel brought extra head protection.. Goofy ears!
A few of us jumped in to swim along in the calm section
As promised... a group photo from River rafting - day 2
about 5:30 p.m. Beci says: "Just finished white water rafting on the Snake River. Will upload pic later."
Mmmmm, it's dinner time... They say its the best BBQ in town. We will see!
After dinner, Beci says: "Time to pack 'em up & move 'em out! Check out of the hotel - head out to Yellowstone in the am! Cell/net will be iffy... so hang in there with us!"
At the end of the day, Mike Newell writes: "I think I will sleep very well tonight. Good night!"
HOW TO FOLLOW OUR ADVENTURE!
Once the Adventure by Disney begins on August 25th, there are THREE ways you can follow us! With new social networking, we plan to do something a little different.
There is a program called "Twitpic" that allows one to send photos via a mobile phone directly to Twitter. Mike Newell, Beci Mahnken, and myself will be posting photos "live" via the Twitter network.
We also have our twitter accounts transmitting automatically to our Facebook accounts. So those of you who are "friends" can follow our adventures that way!
At the same time, AllEars team members Jack Marshall and Debbie Koma will be back home copying our Twitter photos and combining them this daily blog. So, you can follow us either here, on Twitter or on Facebook.
We have been told that there are areas where we will travel that have limited, if any, cell phone service, but we'll make it up once we get service back.
I hope this provides some cool ways for you to follow us on the adventure of a lifetime, an Adventure by Disney to Wyoming!
