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.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
