Friends of the Teton River has released copies of the final Teton Creek Restoration plans, which will include a new water park in the vicinity of the Aspen Pointe subdivision—just upstream of the Cemetery Road Bridge near Driggs, Idaho. Restoration Director Mike Lien says he got the initial idea for the water park features at a floodplain conference he attended in Colorado.  Lein says many Colorado cities and tourist destinations have successfully added water parks to their rivers and streams including Steamboat, Breckenridge, Estes Park.  Professional kayaker Brady O’Grady will help install the whitewater kayaking course on the main stem of the creek to ensure boaters get the “maximum ride,” while a more mellow, “lazy river” section will meander through a side channel. Neighboring Homeowner Frank Furter says he already plans to apply for a business license to run a hot dog cart and a shave ice stand by the time the project is completed in 2015.

    I promised you yesterday that I’d test a new product to see how well it works to keep you cool when the temperatures climb toward triple digits.   In case you missed it, yesterday I talked about seeing an ad on TV for a new type of training pants. The ad said, and I quote, […]
  • I’ll try anything to stay cool in the summer - July 24, 2014
    I recently saw an advertisement for a product that’s sure to be a big hit with outdoorsmen. Especially those of us who stomp around in the woods when the temperatures climb into the nineties. Last weekend, I found myself sitting in jeans, boots, a long-sleeved shirt and a cowboy hat at Cheyenne Frontier Days. While […]
