Hungry Landslide?

IMG_0989Have you been reading recent reports like this one from Fox News: “Rocky landslide slowly devours part of Wyoming resort town”? Our boatman Jim Stanford (shown above), who is a member of the Jackson Town Council, has been keeping us informed about both the slide itself, and the national press reports, which are quite exaggerated! Check out Jim’s wonderful blog site, www.jhunderground.com  for up-to-date information about the slide.

In spite of some of the news headlines, Jackson Hole is not being devoured! This landslide is temporarily affecting a couple of the businesses that are just below the path of the slide, as well as several homes that are above it. It appears to be the result of a quarry having been in operation there from the 1950s to the 1970s, as well as some more recent widening of the road leading into the town of Jackson. Every effort is being made to stabilize the area, and in no way will this event affect any of the other businesses in Jackson or any of the remaining parts of the Jackson Hole valley, including Grand Teton National Park. Jim’s blogsite will provide you with plenty of information about this ongoing situation; check it out!

New early float!

Now that summer is in full swing, we have decided to add a special early morning float two days a week. We will be offering a 6:30 am trip on Tuesdays and Thursdays from now through August 22nd.

This is for those of you who are early risers, as this is a lovely time to be on the water. Also for those of you who (like me) don’t like the summer heat, this is the coolest time of the day to be on the river.  I hope there are a few of you hardy early risers who want to enjoy the peaceful quiet of the early morning float.
