Back in the day holy men and women viewed solar eclipses as bad omens. Crops would die, animals would turn violent, and pregnant mothers were believed to miscarry as a result of the natural phenomenon. So why is everybody flocking to Jackson Hole?

Close to a year ago, rich folks from around the world snatched up all the reasonable lodging in JH and now last-minute plan makers are finding that their only option is to throw down big bucks on some not so awesome, AirBnB camping situations outside of Jackson in nearby Victor and Driggs, Idaho.
Most of these “tent sites” are located across the pass in Idaho and are going for a cool $300 right now (*tax and fees included).
We gotta imagine that locals and out of towners are already laying siege to the public, free campsites around the valley so the only question that remains is– would you ever fork over $300 for a tent site with solar eclipse view of the Tetons?
This guy in Victor wants $250 so you can pitch a tent in what looks like his backyard…
