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.

  • 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 […]
