gros_ventre_road

Representatives of Bridger Teton National Forest met with Teton County officials and land-owners along the Gros Ventre Road this week to discuss needed improvements to a four-mile, paved segment of the road.  Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek explains that the work is not slated to begin right away, but information is being gathered about what is needed and how it will be funded.  Cernicek points out that the Gros Ventre Road provides access from Grand Teton National Park to thousands of acres of national forest land.  Specifically, Cernicek says, “It’s the main access into the Gros Ventre River [basin] – which is a wild and scenic river, into the Gros Ventre Mountains, into the Gros Ventre Wilderness Area.  So it’s pretty significant.”  She adds that there’s quite a bit of recreation use that goes on in that area in addition to be critical access to private inholdings there; and there is also a Wyoming Game and Fish feedground in the area. Cernicek says there is considerable interest among the land-owners there to work cooperatively with the Forest Service in ultimately getting the failing portion of the road repaired.

  • Bigger trucks aren’t always better - August 19, 2014
    I recently had the rare opportunity to test a compact and a full-size pickup pretty much head-to-head. Going into it, I was pretty sure there was nothing the compact version could offer that I would like more than the full-size truck. But the Nissan Frontier, despite its size, is no less truck than the Nissan […]
