Jackson Hole China promotes western values in the far east

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Yesterday, the New York Times posted an article about Jackson Hole, China, the community in the Hebei Province that mimics the our western town. https://www.instagram.com/p/4wVjRCGp4O/ The article states that, in the past 10 years the community has grown to thousands of residents who live in the timber-framed houses, stroll Town Square and frequent the local spa. The article quotes a local Jackson Hole, China resident, stating that "America represents wilderness and freedom, and also a big house,” and that “The United States is cool.” https://www.instagram.com/p/4uAPJtGpxf/ The New York Times describes Jackson Hole, China as "After weekend services at the nondenominational church, many residents gather at the nearby clubhouse, adorned with Navajo art and wagon-wheel chandeliers, for the all-you-can-eat buffet featuring 'American pork chops,' smoked salmon and, in a nod to local tastes, tree ear fungus." https://www.instagram.com/p/5ZJsC5mp1d/ Read the full New York Times article, "A New Frontier for the American West, in the Far East." *Feature Photo: h/t @byadam on Instagram / Pitchengine Communities* #buckrail #news
