Crews in Grand Teton National Park are cleaning up after a microburst ripped through the Colter Bay area Sunday, felling trees, damaging cars and other property and seriously injuring one camper who was hit by a falling tree.  Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says over 100 trees were toppled, blocking roads in the area and stranding park visitors.  She says one woman was taken to St. John’s Medical Center for treatment, but her condition is not immediately known.  Meanwhile, damage is still being assessed and crews are working to remove trees blocking the roads or precariously leaning and posing a hazard to those who may pass beneath them.
