Final touches are being put on the track at Melody Ranch today in preparation for the Skijoring event hosted by the Jackson Hole Shriners Saturday and Sunday.  The event is among the culminating events for Jackson Hole’s Third Annual WinterFest, and money raised will help benefit the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City.  Shrine President Rod Everett says the event is fast-moving and exciting.  He says it is not like the cutter races with Calcutta betting are placed between each racer because there is not enough time.  Organizers say they hope to have 15 teams registered in each of their three events.  Everett says, “On phone calls alone before today, I’ve had at least 25 horses and teams that have called and indicated they’re coming.”   He says they won’t know exactly how many will be in the race until registration takes place Friday night at the Elks Club.  This marks the first time in about a decade that Skijoring has been an event in Jackson Hole.  Races begin at 12:30 pm both days.

  • A lunar eclipse, and me without my camera - April 18, 2014
    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 […]
  • Enzi Opens Campaign HQ in Cheyenne - April 17, 2014
    U.S. Senator Mike Enzi opened his official campaign headquarters in Cheyenne on Wednesday. Wyoming’s senior senator is seeking his fourth term in the Senate.

  • 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 […]
