36 Hours in Jackson Hole, Wyo.

Friday

1) 12:30 P.M. Phone of the Creek

Although Jacksonites may dismissively call Cache Creek the local dog run, this glittering mountain gorge is beautiful in virtually any season, particularly in winter. Depending on snow circumstances, the upwardly sloping trail hugs Cache Creek for kilometers into the highlands: The suitable place to ingest the big sky, alpine peaks and wildlife, which might incorporate moose. The Creek trailhead is a five-minute get from downtown Jackson.

2) 2 P.M. Lotus Lunch

Lotus, a hippie-chic cafe, moved right into a bigger space in past due 2016; the self-defined wellness centre serves healthy, hearty food. Get a pad thai – a light, but flavorful, version with mung bean sprouts, or a “Bombay,” a souped-up mix fry of broccoli, red pepper, and zucchini over dark brown rice with spinach, mango, carrot and toasted coconut. Don’t worry, it’s not all such virtuous food. In addition they feature truffle fries. Lunch time for just two, with coffee, around $40.

3) 3:30 P.M. Retail Relay

Start at Gaslight Alley on North Cache Street. There you’ll find Mountain Dandy, a boutique that opened in 2014, with an eye toward guys (believe ties, socks and amazing handmade blankets) that focuses mostly on American-made products. After that pop to Valley Book Store, a Jackson organization that’s been with us for 40 years. You’ll find stunning coffee table tomes on Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, as well as a Western fiction section, and a big children’s section. On your way out of this picturesque alley, stop into the 3,000-square-ft . Brookover Gallery, whose owner and sole artist, David Brookover, specializes in landscape photos that fuse classic Western printing tactics with Japanese elements. A few blocks apart find Altitude, a women’s store, noteworthy for its stylish cashmere sweaters and crowd-satisfying labels like J Company and Paige.

4) 6 P.M. Beer and Cheese

Bin22 has a lttle bit of everything – a good high-end general retail store, bar and restaurant which has just the right amount of hipster vibe. Good bets will be the house-pulled mozzarella ($13 appetizer and charred wild Spanish octopus with fingerling potatoes ($17). Enjoy it all with an area Wyoming beer on tap, or a full-bodied Spanish red.

5) 8 P.M. Super Sushi

It’s actually called King Sushi, but a superlative is in order for this top-of-the-line joint that’s crowded all year. Opened in 2014, the owners speak daily to a purveyor who hands selects the best-quality seafood. That top quality and freshness come through in dishes like the sake don miso, grilled miso-marinated salmon ($18), and albacore caprese ($17). Try the fantasy roll, aptly called for its mixture of lobster, tempura green onion, Wagyu beef and foie gras butter sauce ($24). If indeed they have it, buy the yuzu panna cotta, which elevates Japanese-themed desserts to the next level. Drinks and evening meal for just two come to around $150.
