Teton County’s Search and Rescue helicopter which crashed while on a mission February 15th was removed from Bridger Teton National Forest Friday.  The aircraft had ended up in a heavily wooded area about 6 1/2 miles south of Togwotee Mountain Lodge and far from any roads.  Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says the forest, working with investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board, sought to have the wreckage removed in such a way that would cause the least impact to forest resources.  As such, the aircraft was lifted from the crash scene by helicopter and transported to a flatbed trailer.  Investigators will now probe the wreckage in hopes of determining what caused the helicopter to suddenly lose control and plummet into the trees.  Search and Rescue member Ray Shriver died of injuries he sustained in that crash.

    Being prepared for the worst is never a bad idea. However, if you carry everything you might need for any emergency, you won’t have room for your tent or sleeping bag. A first aid kit needs to be light and compact, or it’ll be one of the first things you toss out of the pack […]
