Forest Roads Nearly Impassable

This may not have been the time to venture out for winter travel on forest roads.  Bridger Teton National Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says the unseasonably warm weather has left roads soggy, slushy and at times impassable.  She says even the trail groomers have been getting mired down.  Cernicek says, “We had people sliding off the highway, we had snowmobiles that actually got stuck on snow trails where they slumped into the slush and weren’t able to get traction, and we’ve had people with four-wheel-drive who are finding out that it’s really not working well in the ice and the muck that is left over after this warm weather that’s gone through. Cernicek says the forest may have to close some of the roads until conditions improve, but for now they are counting on forest users to exercise good judgement.  Most importantly, Cernicek says just because you can get in on the frozen roads in the morning doesn’t mean you will be able to get back out in the afternoon after they’ve begun to thaw.

  • 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 […]

  • Estimating range on waterfowl is easy - October 22, 2014
    If you’ve done any goose hunting, you’ve probably heard the term “skybusting.” You may know it means shooting at birds that are out of your shotgun’s effective range, but do you know if you’re guilty of it? You can set up your decoys to minimize the risk of shooting at birds when they’re too far […]
