Grand Teton National Park rangers discovered the body of a 55 year-old Winter Park, Florida man Monday morning.  Alberto Ortega’s body was discovered at Windy Point turnout on the Teton Park Road; apparently the victim of a self-inflicted gunshot to his head. Rangers are conducting an investigation into what appears to be a suicide and an isolated event.  Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says rangers responded at 6:15 am Monday to a 911 call from passersby when they came upon the unconscious man lying on the ground next to his Toyota pickup truck. Upon arrival, rangers found Ortega already deceased from a head wound and a semi-automatic pistol next to his body. A note left by Ortega was also located at the scene.

    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 […]
