According to the Idaho Falls, ID newspaper Wed. 5/18, the East entrance to YSNP will open today! The avalanche at Sylvan pass has been cleared.
“Starting today, limited travel will be allowed through Sylvan Pass between 6 AM and 10 AM. Visitors headed westbound into the park should leave Cody no later than 8:30 AM. Travelers headed east out of the park toward Pahaska Tepee and Cody must be across Fishing Bridge by 9:30 AM.”
Also for anybody who is interested, Hwy 26 between Alpine, WY and Hoback Junction is closed (5/16) due to a 300 ft. wide x 800 ft. high mud slide. The highway dept. said that it is saturated with snow melt and still moving, they weren’t going to start removing it until it stops moving by itself.
To get between S/E ID and WY (Jackson/Tetons) you have to go over Teton Pass (10% up/down for 5 miles each side to Victor, ID then to Swan Valley, or North at Victor through Driggs to Sugar City and Rexburg.
We don't realize how luckey we are living in S/E Idaho (other than the long cold winters), we just go to Old Faithful Inn for lunch!
May you have following seas and fair winds!
