A Five Mile Diameter Sampling
Tim and his fireworks crew were busy setting up at the ball fields Wednesday morning and he said he'd let me set up my gear after they had loaded and wired all the charges.
On the way down the hill, I saw a bunch of young men loading groceries into a U-haul trailer so I stopped and found out they were from Wilderness Adventures in Jackson and were going into our woods for 7 days...with Meat Sticks. That's a story and a shot. They figured they could survive as long as they had them. After the first 7 days, they go off into someone else's woods for another 14 days....probably with...
I met the sound crew setting up for the concert in the park. Dave, Danny and their dog...Fat Fur Monkey.
Captain Connor was at Sandy Beach with his family and I learned he had several titles. Captain of Pinedale, Captain of Fun, and Captain of Fremont Lake. Thomas Mack and his friend were cruising around on 15hp choppers that go 30mph. They built them. Fenn, Tommy and Delaney were hitting balls on the driving range with their Dads. Tracey was mixing up drinks in the clubhouse. Burley and his family posed for a nice shot with their dog...who was pretty disturbed there were only empty plates on the picnic table.
I went over to Lakeside Lodge to get a holiday shot and Tara made me a drink with melon, berries and tequila...while we waited for some beautiful models to appear. Like magic Robin and Lisa appeared and one of them started drinking my drink before I even got a sip. I was starting to feel like a Genie had given me three wishes.
I was going out the door when Caitlin arrived in an amazing South of France Sunflower dress and we decided to make a glorious shot. Let me know what you think.
I haven't seen our big horse and wagon driver AnaMarie for the longest time. She had a load of folks in her wagon and little Cherylann was just sitting there smiling at me with her little red, white and blue pinwheel spinning, and so we made a nice shot. Thanks Ladies! btw, Anamarie, I really did get Tim to announce you needed Kay to help with the horses.
Walking back down the sidewalk I saw some long legs and the sun behind them. She was just climbing out of a touring van so I figured she was in the band. Whew! Thanks for the cool shot!
Tommy Upp has been telling me about his donuts, so I climbed into The Donut Hole (trailer) and took a shot of customers...and Tommy gave me a nice, cold, hard vanilla ice cream cone. Yeah!
Little Sashay Paravicini asked if I'd like to get my face painted with her, so we went over and found out we were getting tattoo's instead...from Haley. Just moments before I had heard the happy news about Tim and Hayley...and someone asked if she had a tattoo on her belly.
Sunset found me up on the hill getting my remote triggering camera gear set up. Boom Boom Boom. It just heaved and rocked the earth...and my flimsy little tripods (hence the blurry photos). I thought for sure I'd find them tipped over and broken when I went back to retrieve them.
Thanks to Tim and The Daredevil Crew!
Those were the best fireworks in my memory.
Thank you Dawn Ballou, Pinedale Online! for sponsoring this story.
Just so you all know...I had received a request to put more women in my stories. My apologies to everyone, I hate unbalanced reporting ;-)

Grand Teton National Park
WESTERN WYOMING - Teton Interagency fire managers announce the fire danger rating has been elevated to moderate for the Bridger-Teton National Forest, Grand Teton National Park, National Elk Refuge, and remaining portions of the Teton Interagency Dispatch area. The potential for fire activity has increased due to summer curing of vegetation combined with warmer, drier conditions.
A moderate fire danger rating means fires can start from most accidental causes. Unattended campfires and brush fires have potential to escape, especially on windy days in dry, open areas.
When determining fire danger, fire managers use several indicators such as the moisture content of grasses, shrubs, and trees; projected weather conditions including temperatures and possible wind events; the ability of fire to spread after ignition; and availability of firefighting resources both within the region as well as other parts of the country.
In areas where campfires are allowed, fires should never be unattended and must be completely extinguished. Simply pouring water on the remains of a fire is not sufficient. The charred remains must be repeatedly doused with water and stirred into the campfire ring. All embers and logs, not just the red ones, should be broken up and covered with dirt. Before leaving the area, the campfire remains must be cold to the touch.
Visit the Teton Interagency Fire web site at tetonfires.com to learn more about fire safety and what fire regulations may be in place. To report a fire or smoke in the immediate area, call the Teton Interagency Fire Dispatch Center at 307-739-3630.
The Sublette County Historical Society is excited to announce the completion of upgrades to the Trappers Point Overlook. The 10-acre historic site overlooks the historic rendezvous grounds of the early 1800s Rocky Mountain fur trade. Six of the 16 rendezvous were held in the Upper Green near Daniel, Wyoming. The renovations to the historic site include installation of seven new historic interpretive signs, three large rock benches, rehabbing the steep trail with new rustic steps, adding gravel for erosion control, and replacing a large wooden sign with a 6x10 foot see-through clear panel sign that allows a window-like view of the historic rendezvous grounds. Funding for the site renovation was through private donations and grants.
A 50th anniversary re-dedication ceremony will take place on Thursday, July 12, 2018 at 10:00am at Trappers Point. This will kick off the Green River Rendezvous Days living history programs for the Museum of the Mountain Man in Pinedale. Fur trade historian Jim Hardee will discuss the historic Green River Rendezvous. State Representative Albert Sommers will talk about the Green River Drift cattle operations, and former Wyoming State Archeologist Mark Miller will describe the significance of the nearby Trappers Point pronghorn archeology site.
A free bus, sponsored by Sublette BOCES, will leave the Museum of the Mountain Man at 9:30am Thursday morning for those who would prefer not to drive up to the historic site. Registration for the bus is recommended and available online at http://www.subletteboces.com/classes/. The site is located 5 miles west of Pinedale on the East Green River road, on the south side of the Cora junction with WY 352. The turn-off into the historic site is through the elk fence on the two-track dirt road through the cattle sorting grounds on the south side of the highway, then up the hill. Parking on top is limited Ė carpooling is recommended. The public is invited to attend the rededication ceremony and check out the new renovations to the historic monument. For more information, contact the Museum of the Mountain Man, 307-367-4101.
