Snowmobilers Rescued On Togwotee

stuck snowmobile

Teton County Search and Rescue was called to Togwotee Pass Friday afternoon to aid in the evacuation of a group of snowmobilers who had become stuck in a drainage near Angle Mountain.  Search and Rescue Coordinator Doug Meyer says the group of five visitors from Nebraska and Iowa haddescended into a draw and could not get back out.  After numerous unsuccessful attempts, they used a cell phone and called for help.  Meyer says rescuers responded to GPS coordinates relayed by the group and found nothing.  With the help of the search and rescue helicopter, they were later able to locate the group about three to four miles north of the coordinates given.  Meyer says rescue personnel were able to help them extricate their machines and return to civilization by Friday evening.  Meyer says the five were cold, but otherwise unhurt in the incident.  He says this is the first such mission this year.

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 […]
