Grand Teton National Park officials have announced two roads will close to vehicle traffic for the winter season Wednesday evening. Vehicle closures include the length of the Teton Park Road between the Taggart Lake parking area and Signal Mountain Lodge parking lot, as well as the Moose-Wilson Road between Granite Canyon and Death Canyon trailheads. The Teton Park Road is not plowed after the first of November, but during the time that the Teton Park Road remains free of snow, visitors are welcome to use the roadway for non-motorized recreation such as walking, bicycling, and in-line skating. Once the snow begins to accumulate on the roadbed, officials say winter season activities such as cross-country skiing, skate skiing and snow-shoeing will become possible there.  In addition to the annual road closures, the Moose, Moran and Granite Canyon entrance stations will temporarily close for the month of November and early December, but will reopen on December 15th for the winter season. Meanwhile, Park officials say the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center in Moose begins its winter season hours of operation of 9:00 am until 5:00 pm beginning Thursday.  Meanwhile, the interior roads in Yellowstone National Park close to wheeled vehicles for the season Monday morning.

    Monday night, or more accurately early Tuesday morning, there was a total lunar eclipse. And being the experienced nature photographer I am, you’d think I was ready with my camera. But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
