The Venue Report's Media Design Manager, Nathan Mueller, takes us on a photo journal adventure of his recent trip to Wyoming where he and his girlfriend encountered wild animals, toured Amangani and got a BTS look at their culinary program.
Through snow-blanketed winding roads and dancing snow flurries falling from the sky, a sense of harmony in Wyoming’s frozen wilderness comes over my girlfriend, Hannah, and myself as we make our trek 7,000 feet above sea level. High above the town of Jackson, Wyoming sits a wood-carved sign reading "Amangani" at the fork in the road as we arrive at our mountain abode for the next few days.
Amangani translates to "peaceful home" as it clings to the crest of East Gros Ventre Butte overlooking the tree lined valley of Jackson Hole with views of Teton Pass and the Snake River Range. We were welcomed by Amangani's Guest Experience Manager, Elizabeth, and instantly felt like we were in the home of a close friend. Inside, a sense of peace, serenity and warmth radiated throughout while the winds and snowfall picked up outside. Beyond enjoying the laidback luxury of the hotel, we found out we would also embark on Amangani's signature wildlife sighting experience that would prove to be one of the most memorable adventures our lives.
