Forest Roads Open On Caribou-Targhee

usfs

While flooding  and landslides delay the opening on many roads on the Bridger-Teton National Forest, conditions on the Caribou-Targhee National Forest are slowly becoming suitable to support vehicle traffic on most roads and some trails in the Ashton and Island Park area without causing resource damage.  District Ranger, Elizabeth Davy cautions that conditions are still marginal for summer travel but some of the roads are slowly opening.  The district asks that users stay on designated travel routes and use good judgment regarding travel on roads and trails not yet sufficiently dry to prevent resource damage.  Many roads are still very muddy due to all the moisture received over the weekend.  “If you are leaving ruts in the road or trail surface,” Davy says, “you shouldn’t be driving on them.”  Additional closures or restrictions may be made at any time for resource protection or public safety.  Davy cautions that road shoulders are soft so caution should be used when vehicles pass.

However, because this is a program about the outdoors, I’ll just talk about the things in the outdoors I’m thankful for. There’s plenty of it. Especially here in Wyoming. We’ve got […]
  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]
