A 32 year-old woman was rescued from the south side of the Hoback River about 1½ miles south of Hoback Junction Thursday night after she fell about 15 feet from a cliff onto rocks below.  Teton County Undersheriff  Bob Gilliam says bringing the unidentified woman to safety became a bit of a cooperative effort.  He says the county’s search and rescue team was initially dispatched to the scene; however, before they arrived, deputies, ambulance crews and members of the Jackson Hole Fire/EMS were able to get the woman down.  Then, with the assistance of some rafters who were in the area, got her across the river to a waiting ambulance.  She was then transported to St. John’s Medical Center for treatment. Gilliam says the exact nature of her injuries was unclear, but they were not considered life-threatening.

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 […]

  • 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 […]
