Just down the road from our campus, there is a historic site, Mormon Rowe, where the first homesteaders of Jackson Hole tried their luck. Life was hard with long and cold winters, and the soil was anything but fertile. Today, the buildings and irrigation ditches are testaments to the tough life that the settlers lived.
This spring, instead of photographing the historic buildings with the Tetons in the background, people are taking pictures of coyote pups. Underneath one of the historic cabins, a coyote made her den and is raising her pups.
