Field Report: XC Ski at Murie Ranch

Friendly community gathering at the Murie Ranch, connecting with nature in winter skiing into the woods by the beaver ponds. Moose and pine marten tracks were visible in the snow.
It felt as if Marty snd Olaus were there.

In the midst of these busy winter days came Christmas, chopping, the skiing or snowshoeing a mile for mail or messages; all this we enjoyed, and gladly paid that price for the ineffable peach and beauty of this place which soon became deeply home.

The one feature we all freely admitted was a chore was the business of the light plant. There was one at our house, one for the Homestead where Weezy and Ade lived whenever they weren’t away in Alaska or elsewhere on other government field work, and one at the house Buster and Frances had built for themselves. This latter was closed in the winter, so we had only two to worry about. But in winter there was an absolutely unlimited number of things that Ould go wrong with a gasoline engine generator-and they did- so we were all living each day with that nagging at the back of the mind. “ Will she, wont she run tonight?”

Bridger-Teton Open House

The Bridger-Teton National Forest is inviting the public to a community open house at their 340 N. Cache office on Monday February 4th from 9-11am. The Bridger-Teton National Forest would like to thank their neighbors, partners and friends for the support during the recent government shutdown and will be offering free refreshments. Friends of the Bridger-Teton will also be there to share information about the new organization and how you can help support the Forest.

GTNP Update

Grand Teton National Park road crews have cleared snow from the north end of the Moose-Wilson Road between Murie Ranch Road junction and Death Canyon Road junction. This section of road was closed during the government shutdown.

Motor vehicles may now use Moose-Wilson Road to the normal seasonal closure at Death Canyon Road. Please drive carefully as packed snow and ice may persist on this road and other park roads.

Nordic Ambassadors in GTNP are back!

9:05am: The levee and Stilson are groomed. The levee is very firm but skiing improves immensely after the 1 mile mark. Stilson is in great shape for both classic and skate skiing. I am heading to the school fields now and will be done around 11:00.
