Oh, so the shotguns were for a father & son thing…
I haven’t seen this photo before, but if it is Sun Valley, they’re on the old bridge out at the Trail Creek Cabin. The bridge was replaced about 10 years ago. Hemingway used to do a lot of hunting out there. It was a cabin/restaurant that belonged to the Sun Valley resort. Still is.
There are stories of Hemingway bringing in birds and deer and leaving them in the restaurant kitchen for staff to clean and prep.
He reminds me a bit of James Doohan in this particular photo.
“Dad, don’t they have the outdoors and shotguns on Nintendo?”
I’ve lived all over the country and Sun Valley still gives the the fondest memories, even though it was 23 years ago and I was 9. Getting out of school, sprinting home to get my fishing pole, riding my bike to the hobby shop, smelling sage and pine and cottonwood trees, being told to stay inside because there was a mountain lion spotting, driving to the Snow Bunny for a burger….goddamn I miss being a kid.
What’s crazy is what’s going on during this pic. Probably one of the scariest times to be alive, the world is at war and there’s a very real chance the “good guys” are gonna lose.
Also known later in life as Gloria Hemingway as Greg had gender dysphoria, sometimes dressed as a woman (among other habits) and died in a jail cell waiting trial for public indecency. Dude had some issues.
Imagine his inner monologue. Not writing, but just thinking thoughts. I wonder if his thoughts were like his writing, or if he’s sitting there thinking, “…Forgot to fix that fence and do the dishes. Rats.”
“When Hemingway put his brains to the wall with a shotgun, that was style.” – Charles Bukowski.
