Wyoming Scores High With Snowmobilers

Island Park snowmobile

The Greater Yellowstone area has emerged again this year as a snowmobiling Mecca in the United States with Wyoming emerging as home to four of the top ten trails selected by readers of “SnoWest” magazine for the 2011/2012 winter season. Among those trails are the Continental Divide, Snowy Range, Big Horn and Alpine/Wyoming Range. The Continental Divide Trail, listed number three on the list, is described by “SnoWest” as, in their words, “one of the West’s best riding spots with its spectacular views and legendary powder.” The Alpine/Wyoming Range at number nine, rounded out Wyoming’s representation on the Top Ten list. About that trail SnoWest said “Wyoming Range is located between Alpine and Kemmerer and boasts approximately 335 miles of trails. Expect deep snow, beautiful scenery and fantastic off-trail riding.”  “SnoWest” readers named West Yellowstone as number one followed by Island Park as number two. Still, Wyoming had more trails listed among the top ten than any other state.

    Monday night, or more accurately early Tuesday morning, there was a total lunar eclipse. And being the experienced nature photographer I am, you’d think I was ready with my camera. But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
