Chester Jackson Family
Myra and Beulah's Vacation in
Yellowstone and Glacier
Photos inherited from my great aunts, Myra and Beulah, contained a few surprises (some already noted). One was a set of photos of them on vacation at Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks, in 1924. Those were days before creature comforts in the parks were de rigueur, when roughing it really meant roughing it. From the photos, it seems that is exactly what these adventurous gals, one over forty and the other four years younger, experienced.
We have no documentation of the trip other than the photos. Postcards found in the collection are also included. They provide a glimpse into the backcountry before Gore-Tex and rip stop nylon.
