For her bachelorette party, actress Emmy Rossum opted to escape to one of her favorite places in the world. The Shameless star enjoyed a cozy getaway to snow-capped Jackson Hole, Wyoming, this weekend with a group of her best friends.

Rossum, 30, posted an Instagram slideshow from the festivities without mentioning that the occasion was held in her honor. “Girls weekend,” the Phantom of the Opera actress wrote.

She then posted individual images of each of the attendees—some presumably in her bridal party—enjoying the romantic destination. On Twitter, Rossum posted about looking forward to the celebration. “4 flights in 4 days is too much but I am happy to be safe and sound in one of my favorite places. #snowcountry,” she expressed.

Jackson Hole is a meaningful location for Rossum, who previously spoke highly of the destination to Vanity Fair. “I like to stay active even if I’m on vacation. I hike with my mom before breakfast in Jackson,” she noted. “We bundle up and take our cameras (she’s got her professional lenses, and I’ve got a little Fuji x100). We love snapping pictures of the local wildlife. This past trip I got a great picture of a baby Rocky Mountain sheep frolicking in the morning snow. So cute!”

The future bride also divulged the best-kept secret about Jackson Hole in the same interview. “The concierge recommended Jared Paul, a local wildlife expert. He took us on a tour of the Grand Teton mountains and pointed out massive falcons, bald eagles, buffalo, Rocky Mountain big-horned sheep, and foxes,” she said. “It was also fascinating to learn about black bears’ mating habits and how they can survive a winter while being pregnant. It’s called ‘delayed implantation.’ (Nerd alert!)”

Along with her affinity for the great outdoors, Rossum’s bridal party and friends hit one of her favorite local hot-spots for swing dancing. She previously spoke highly of the bar, telling VF in 2013: “The million-dollar cowboy bar is a fun spot to pop in for a drink, warm up, and play a game of pool. The seats at the bar are actually saddles!”

Rossum has been engaged to Mr. Robot director Sam Esmail since August 2015. She is wearing a Carolina Herrera gown to her upcoming nuptials.
