"Visit Goosewing Ranch in Jackson Hole during the early fall for a more peaceful experience, as the summer crowds have dissipated and the changing leaves provide a stunning backdrop for horseback riding. Also, try the locally recommended trail ride to Soda Lake – it's less frequented and offers breathtaking views, plus a chance for wildlife sightings."
