A public hearing regarding the National Park Service’s final winter use plan for Yellowstone National Park is set for tonight in Jackson.  Among the concerns raised by participants in the last round of hearings were a proposal to limit entry to the park to only prior to 10:30 am, a deadline for all snow coaches being used for tours to be outfitted with new “best available technology,” and a lack of provisions for those wishing to access the park privately.  Spokesman Dan Hottle says some of the alternatives under consideration have been adjusted in light of the comments. Hottle says the meeting is intended to poll the public as to whether the park is on track for a final winter plan this year.  The open house takes place beginning 6:30 pm at the Virginian Lodge.

  • Shoot some skeet if you’re feeling like a crack shot - July 18, 2014
    I shot at a lot of clay pigeons when I was a kid, but I never did it at an organized trap or skeet club. And I’ve shot at a lot of birds, both upland and waterfowl. I may not have been born with a shotgun in my hand, but I picked one up not […]
  • Change gears on the outdoor activities - July 17, 2014
    Next week’s the last full week in July, and if you live anywhere near Cheyenne, that means Cheyenne Frontier Days. It actually starts tomorrow. I kind of got into the habit of absorbing everything Frontier Days has to offer when I was working at the newspaper, and I can’t seem to get it out of […]
