Oct 4-6, Teton Splendor camping trip

Teton Splendor

October 4 -6, 2019

Witness the Tetons in their best fall dress where rampaging large ungulates (elk, bison, moose), release their fall passion with grunts, bugles, and a nasty disposition. Fall migrating birds along with winter residents will add to the fun.

Car pool 3 p.m. from parking lot north of Café Ibis or USU CNR parking lot on Friday, October 4th.

Return Sunday afternoon, October 6th. Several hikes combined with auto tours will be included, and a visit to the Teton Science School Murie Museum.

We will be camping at Gros Ventre campground, so bring your own food & gear.

The cost is $12/night/person for the group campsite plus donating whatever is fair to the driver (unless you’re driving!)

Contact Jack Greene by Friday, September 27th if you plan to participate:

 435-563-6816 or jackisgreene@yahoo.com .
