GTNP Park Road Open To Bikes

GTNP Sign

As the ski opportunities dwindle, other activities begin to present themselves around Jackson Hole.  Beginning this weekend, the Teton Park Road will be available for those wishing to bike, skate or walk the road from the Taggert Lake parking lot to Signal Mountain.  Still, Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says, they need to be careful as the ice has not completely melted off in all areas. Skaggs says if you aren’t into biking or inline skating, there are still opportunities for winter recreation as well.  Sufficient snow still exists for cross country skiing and snow-shoeing alongside the road or on the various park trails.  Skaggs reminds those heading into the park that food and water are not available north of Moose yet, so people need to carry their own water and snacks.  Meanwhile, some vault toilets are open now along the way.  Furthermore, Skaggs says weather can be very changeable now, so people need to be ready to quickly deal with whatever the day deals out.

  • A lunar eclipse, and me without my camera - April 18, 2014
    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 […]

    U.S. Senator Mike Enzi opened his official campaign headquarters in Cheyenne on Wednesday. Wyoming’s senior senator is seeking his fourth term in the Senate.

  • 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 […]
