BTNF On Next Year’s National Passes

Share the Experience

The American public has been invited in recent years to submit photos of their outdoor experiences in a contest that could win $15,000 for the winner and have their photo placed on the nationally-distributed America the Beautiful Pass.  Bridger Teton National Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says those purchasing next year’s pass will see a photo set in a mountain valley that some may find vaguely familiar. Bridger Teton National Forest officials, she says are obviously pleased with the selection.  She says everyone who gets the annual pass will get to see a piece of the forest that hopefully will entice people to come to the area to experience the forest first hand. The photo of a campsite at Island Lake in the Wind River Range was submitted by Katherine Hawkins.  The camp was set up during a five-day backpacking trip and Hawkins 3½ year old daughter had ducked into the tent to escape some pesky mosquitos.  The photo was selected from more than 16,000 photos submitted to the contest last year.

    A weak ridge of high pressure will build over the region today, which will allow temperatures to become warmer and closer to average statewide.  However, some lingering low-level moisture and daytime heating could trigger a few hit or miss thunderstorms for the afternoon and early evening hours.  Gusty winds and lots of lightning will be […]
  • GPS will sometimes lead you to astray - August 29, 2014
    At the risk of sounding like I’ve been watching too much Top Gear, I need to go off on a bit of a rant right now. The good folks at Nissan let me drive a Titan for two full months, which was really nice of them. And it’s done a pretty good job of filling […]
