Traditions are rewarding to maintain, and in my family, our cars have been featured in family photos consistently over the years. One of the places where we always staged a group photo was along Highway 191 in Jackson, Wyoming.
The location, which now houses a TJ Maxx, features a large statue of a bull elk in the parking lot. My dad, an avid outdoorsman, found it a perfect backdrop for our shot. Over the years, each time we visited Jackson (and each time in a different vehicle) we would line up the photo there.
Here are a few photos from 1989, 1997, 1999, and – most recently – a visit I made in 2020 when I was road testing a new Acura TLX PMC Edition. The landscape has changed but the elk statue remains! Maybe we need to get dad into a new 2023 Ford Lightning EV pickup and have a family reunion at the same location.
