There is no back road, just a long haul over along the Palisades, then Pine creek pass to Driggs, over Teton pass to Jackson. 2.5 hours around.
In 96 it took over 2 months for them to clear the road.
The run off is just starting with snow above this will continue to slide for a few more weeks. The road is going to stay closed. Even after it stops I can't help to wonder what damage will be done to road and how long it will take to repair.
We are planning on going up to get a few pictures and check the river.
Last nite we put the new raft in the living room, blew it up and laced in the floor. My son and I slept in at as it might be the only use this summer.
