We felt so fortunate to find horses grazing in this meadow on our trip to this park. In our preparation, we had read that a ranch allowed them into this pasture occasionally. We were rewarded for keeping our eyes open to it. I believe that is 'the' Grand Teton in the background haze.

Cunningham Cabin

The Cunningham Cabin stands as one of the valley’s few remaining structures from the homesteading era when settlers filed nearly 400 claims in Jackson Hole. In the 1880s, John and Margaret Cunningham staked a claim for the Bar Flying U Ranch. Cunningham built his cabin in 1888 in the Appalachian style, commonly called “double-pen” or “dog-trot.” John lived in the cabin until 1895 when he finished his main residence, and it later became a smithy and barn.
