W-6-INDEPENDENT-PRESS-TELEGRAM LONG Sl : / CN 11. CALIF. SUNDAY. JULY . 11*1 Major Minor Notes STAGECOACH 'HOLDUP 1 IN A FRONTIER TOWN By RACHEL MORTON I, P-T Muik Crit.-c On our recent vacation among the b e a u t i f u l Tclon Mountains of Wyoming we took several auto trips with Stan Boyle, oldest bus driver in the region. "Stan," who prew up in these mountains, has been driving the roads since he was a boy of 13. A jovial host, he regaled us on our trip to lovely .lenny Lake w i t h a condensed retelling of the novel. "The Virginian," a hero of these parts. One evening, in his own car and w i t h o u t charge, he drove us t h r o u g h rugged t e r r a i n lo "Two Ocean Lake," so called because its waters seep out on one side to the Pacific Ocean and on the other, tn the Atlantic. The flaring sunset of nrange and gold lighted up the beautiful fir nnd pine-clasped lake, as silver and pewter streaks of light played upon the placid waters, rish jumped high and busy beavers hurried through the waters, heads well out. What « thing of beauty lo remember! WILD FLOWLRS blooming p r o f u s e l y in the meadows o( this Grand Tcton country arc another of nature's extravagances. Whole fields of the red-orange Indian paintbrush and scarlet gilia vie w i t h the b r i l l i a n t yellow balsam-root. Our own lovely lupine was hard to distinguish from the low blue larkspur. There were even deep blue forget-me- nots peeping up t h r o u g h the green grass. Coming back to earth from all this paradise of nature's wonders, we drove, on another occasion, to the l i t t l e frontier town of Jackson, little changed from the days of the wild and woolly west. During the summer evenings the. square is lined with tourists, gathered tn witness a "live" stagecoach holdup. As it comes c l a t t e r i n g into town, the p.un shots of the villain frighten the horses who rear up and whinny; the pretty school teacher is dragged out and whisked away by the masked bandit on his fast steed, fiul the sheriff's posse comes galloping i n t o town just in time; the bandit is caught, a noose is put around his neck and RS he is being hanged to a tree, a r i f l e shot puts a speedy end to the show and to the culprit. It is all such f u n . * if * THERE IS warm hospitality in a land where m o u n t a i n s and sky meet. A ne.w-found friend took us to Coulter Bay, where Jackson Lake is wide, with heavily wooded shores. Here there are camp sites, log cabins, a cafeteria seating 2flO and even an open air theater and a recreation hall. - W h a t an out-of-door paradise fnr a f a m i l y vacation. As we motored leisurely back to Jackson Lake Lodge we espied a herd of b u f f a l o gra/.ing close to the fence, enclosure. We watclicd enthralled as these mighty-headed p.nd heavily-bearded scions of the plains, feasting on Ihe lush grass, moved slowly and s t e a d i l y forward, the mothers followed by their young. Many deer and elk loped across Ihe meadows as we watched and the snow-white trumpet swans flew overhead to their resting place on the water's edge. For this glorious sojourn, we and many others must he forever endebted to John D. Rockefeller, Jr., who gave nnt only 33,(100 acres of t h i s fabulous land, known now as The Grand Teton N a t i o n a l Park, but who also gave $S million to build Jackson Lake Lodge.
