    Yeah. I want to read it. Kinda pricey for the actual book.

    North facing dusk patrol at Targhee skied pretty nice this evening. Kind of surreal being up there mid March with no one around Click image for larger version.

    Nice work, GTID; Surreal is the word.

    I'm digging the lack of cars and peeps around. for now.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Wow, EoB is leaving the Valley of the Sun for the Falls of the Snake. You'll dig it, so much to do in a 1-5 hr. radius. IF is actually kinda well positioned for going other places. Tetons, Sawtooths, City of Rocks, Massacre rocks, Big Sky, Ennis, SLC. And close to ground zero/mecca for Fly fishing.

    Let's hike in the Tetons this summer or maybe connect with LBL for some Raptor expeditions...

    Typical Targhee sunshine today. Visibility was bad even by Targhee standards. Skiing was good, North facing had about 6 inches, could feel the crust under the snow on the south facing stuff but it all skied pretty well. Lots of people out hitting it.Click image for larger version.

    True about the central location. I have known this my whole life. Headed out to the wilds in the morning. So many choices.

    The Eagles? Doubt I'll be leading anyone to the nest this season. Covid 19 and all. Bummer. I'll post some shots in other thread soon. They are nesting already. No determination on how many eggs this year.

    Keep us posted LBL! That being said I saw a newborn calf still steaming today in Driggs.

    No gates means no way to get in and park. They canít really close other ways to approach in but itís going to be a lot harder. Iíve been skinning Snow King and they just funded grooming but I wonder how long thatís going to last because I definitely see groups of skiers and hikers hanging out in areas...

    Our public land policies favor the wealthy and well connected who can bypass these restrictions by owning private land, sleds, or traveling to places less affected.

    Idaho is not under lockdown technically, but a stay at home order similar to that imposed in Blaine County this past Sunday. Just got off the phone with the state (Idaho 211 if anyone else needs to call) as I manage a team of 20, it is not "papers please" type situation. "All businesses should do as much as possible to allow employees to work from home, but if not they are allowed to work currently". Direct quotes from the state.

    That being said, plenty of places are going to not have a choice. Restaurants are now officially take out only, retail stores are closed, banks are drive up only, etc. Basically life as it has been the past week or so for us in Teton Valley. I was in IF though a couple days ago and it was like Coronavirus wasn't even a thing so life there is probably changing.

    Construction/trades have been deemed essential also FYI, which is a huge employment driver for the valley currently, who knows how long though. And you can still go to Targhee and skin up as long as you practice social distancing. Final order will be posted tonight here: https://coronavirus.idaho.gov/

    FKNA though I really didn't expect this coming from Idaho ultimately.

    Thanks for the correction, I should choose my words more carefully right now. I figured it would happen eventually but I am a bit surprised it came on so fast but to be honest I'm glad Gov. Little pulled the trigger. Need to get serious in this state before it blows up. My wife and I have pretty much already been isolating ourselves from others for over a week already so this isn't much of a change. I also just saw that Jackson reported their 5th case. I wonder how long before Targhee closes the gate to the parking lot, haven't heard anything just wondering.

    I'm pretty sure that vehicle travel to/from skiing zones is NOT okay, per the order. (see the attached) My interpretation of this order is that if you can walk or ride your bike to activities, then it's considered okay. If you have to drive a vehicle to said activities, then it is not okay.

    Our county prosecutor in Teton County (ID) this morning responded to somebody asking if skiing was ok with a yes.

    ...and therein lies the problem. The total inconsistency of the messaging at all levels of government, from the local to the state, to the federal level. I hate to ask the question, but was the prosecutor referring to skiing as a legit activity, (which by the order it would/could be), without referring to the act of driving to the skiing location? The wording above is a direct quote from the governor and would seem to contradict the prosecutor. "All non-essential travel must cease". So, unless skiing is considered essential and it requires travel to get there, then I'd say the prosecutor is at odds with statements from the governor. The governor was extremely vague when asked how the state was going to enforce these mandates, and basically said it's the "honor system" until too many are not honoring it. Then he said they'd have to reassess. So I suppose the Teton County prosecutor was only referring to whether or not they would prosecute someone from traveling to get to the goods. To me, this is the classic "Catch-22". "Yes, you can go skiing, but only if you don't drive to get there".

    Cody, so the way I'm interpreting that "all non-essential" travel must cease is just that. Of course, Gov. Little is vague, it's what he does. Seems like all these policies and practices are in place but no one knows how to execute them or what they even mean, trust me, the hospital is notorious for that and frankly kind of a shitshow when it comes to one hand knowing what the other is doing.

    With that said, if you see a guy hiking up Hard Guy with skis, boots and a pack, stop and ask for change as I'm sure you know what that person is trying to get to. I can assure you that the Miller gulch trailhead and Corrals trailhead won't be devoid of vehicles, there'll still be plenty of folks driving to the trailheads. Good thing I live close to Polecat, I don't think riding a bike to the trails is against this "rule".

    The congregating at the bottom of DC on the plaza has not gone unnoticed. Let's play by the rules folks.

    Thanks for the additional info Snapt. After reading that exchange, and studying the https://coronavirus.idaho.gov/ site, I also called the 211 line and spoke with one of the reps. The actual consensus from theses sources is that the word "travel" in this context is actually aimed at moving between communities, states or countries. If we are simply accessing a trail head from our home within the community/valley that we live in, that is not breaking the spirit and/or the letter of the mandate. The representative on the 211 call did bring up the issue of being cautious and not putting ourselves at increased risk where we would need rescue services.
    I won't be driving over to hit the Pass, or Galena Summit, or even the Soldier Mountains.
    Bottom line for me, is that I may now drive up Bogus Basin road, (my local area) and hit some of the terrain outside of the ski resort this weekend. Ryan, PM me if you're in. :-)
