A Lull In The Fire Season

fire-sign-high

Two recent fires have been controlled now and are no longer considered active.  The Y Fire, reported Sunday, was held at 1/10 of an acre in the Greys River area and was controlled by Tuesday.  The Pilgrim Fire in the Pilgrim Creek Drainage just north of Grand Teton National Park, also reported Sunday, was kept to less than ¼ acre.   Both of the fires were lightning caused.  Fire officials say after the lightning produced in the thunderstorms that came through the area early in the week, they are watching to see if any “sleeper” fires emerge as the weather dries and warms.  Already last night, Jackson Hole Fire/EMS units from Hoback Junction and crews from Teton Interagency Fire were called to a single tree that was torching with flames estimated at 20-feet high just above the Dog Creek Work Center in Hoback Canyon.  That fire is believed to have resulted from Sunday’s lighting storm.  At this time, fire restrictions remain in place throughout Teton County, Bridger Teton National Forest and Grand Teton National Park.

  • Hauling hay makes me consider ATVs - July 28, 2014
    In my days in the mountains, I’ve seen some horse wrecks that probably should have turned my hair gray prematurely. I’ve had horses go lame on me deep in the backcountry. And I’ve been awakened in the night to the sound of thundering hooves receding down the trail toward the trailer. None of those situations […]

  • 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 […]
