Jackson, Wyoming in SupervolcanoEdit

Colin Ferguson stayed in a Motel 6 in Jackson, Wyoming when he took a vacation at Yellowstone National Park over a Memorial Day weekend.[1] While the town did have a reputation for very expensive accommodations, Ferguson found the Motel 6 an affordable alternative. He momentarily surprised Kelly Birnbaum when he told her the town he was staying until he sheepishly confessed he was in a Motel 6.[2]

In the immediate aftermath of the eruption of the Yellowstone Supervolcano, Kelly realized that the Grand Tetons were going to get another layer of volcanic tuff pasted on and that the tuff would be tough on Jackson, Wyoming.[3] A year later, while teaching a class at Cal State Dominguez, she reflected that Jackson was as one with Pompeii and Herculaneum; covered in ash and lava and waiting to astonish archaeologists a few centuries hence.[4]
