New Fires In and Around Jackson Hole

Alder Fire

Several fires popped up in and around Jackson Hole yesterday keeping Teton Interagency firefighters busy.  The JDR fire was reported at approximately 4:00 pm. Thursday and is burning 4-miles from Flagg Ranch in the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway.  There are 3 smoke jumpers and 1 helicopter suppressing the ¼-acre fire as it continues burning north and east toward the border with Yellowstone National Park. The Observation Fire is comprised of 5 spot fires burning within the Palisades Wilderness Study Area along the Caribou Targhee and Bridger Teton National Forests in the headwaters of Coulburn Creek, and at the head of the Little Dog and Dog Creek drainages. 4 West Yellowstone smokejumpers suppressed this fire throughout the day. The fire is burning in white bark pine trees and grasses. The cause of the fire is under investigation. The Haystack Fire is 90-percent contained and did not produce any visible smoke on Thursday. This lightning caused wildfire is located north of the Gros Ventre drainage in the Gray Hills area of the Jackson Ranger District.  At approximately 52 acres, the fire is burning in primarily sage, grass and an “island” of timbered lodgepole pine trees.  Currently, the fire danger in this area is considered “high,” although no restrictions have been imposed as yet.

    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
