Afterwards, Melania headed to Snake River for a rafting trip with area fourth-graders and guides from the local Rafter X Ranch.
“Today was full of adventure, exploring different parts of Wyoming with students,” Melania said. “I want to thank the young leaders in the Jackson District Boy Scouts for their commitment to public service and protecting our historic national treasures. I applaud their dedication to such important causes. We should continue encouraging our children to experience and preserve the diverse rivers, mountains, and landscapes that make up the natural beauty of Wyoming that we had the privilege of enjoying today.”
On Friday, she is scheduled to visit Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks.
