Campers down the Gros Ventre had to clear trees out of the way on Monday to get back to town.

Jackson resident, Patrick McAlearney told Buckrail, “Together with the help of the other driver and [a camper], we were able to move nearly 35 downed trees to make the roadway usable enough to exit the river canyon and return to town.”
