Landslide!

road-closed

A landslide on the southern bank of Palisades Reservoir near the dam, along Forest Road 76, has moved significantly leading to the temporary closure of the road.  Caribou-Targhee National Forest Supervisor, Brent Larson signed a closure order for the road and immediate slide area on April 27th.  Access is not allowed from the Palisades Dam to Calamity Junction or surrounding area of the slide due to falling trees and high escarpments.  Meanwhile, the South Snake River Road still provides access to the Calamity Area while the portion of the Snake River/Calamity Road over the Palisades Dam still provides key public access to summer homes, campgrounds, trailheads, and boat ramps.  The campground and boat ramp, however are closed to vehicles with trailers due to a lack of space to make the turn at Calamity Junction.

  • 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 […]
  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
