Park Road Opens

GTNP Entrance

Tomorrow is May first, and that means the summer season is officially beginning to take shape in Grand Teton National Park with the opening of the Teton Park Road.  Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says the early season brings with it a variety of considerations for the park visitor, particularly the amount of wildlife that is still very actively moving around the park and into their summer ranges. The first facility to open will be the Gros Ventre campground on Friday. Entrance stations to the park are already open with a variety of pass options available.  Those on foot or bicycle can pay $12 for a seven-day pass, motorcycles may buy a seven-day pass for $20, those in automobiles pay $25 for those same seven days, or park visitors may either purchase a Grand Teton/Yellowstone pass for the year for $50 or the federal pass for $80. The South Entrance Road to Yellowstone is not scheduled to open until May 11th.

  • Diapers weren’t a magic bullet for staying cool - July 25, 2014
    I promised you yesterday that I’d test a new product to see how well it works to keep you cool when the temperatures climb toward triple digits.   In case you missed it, yesterday I talked about seeing an ad on TV for a new type of training pants. The ad said, and I quote, […]
  • I’ll try anything to stay cool in the summer - July 24, 2014
    I recently saw an advertisement for a product that’s sure to be a big hit with outdoorsmen. Especially those of us who stomp around in the woods when the temperatures climb into the nineties. Last weekend, I found myself sitting in jeans, boots, a long-sleeved shirt and a cowboy hat at Cheyenne Frontier Days. While […]
