Hay Wagon
In Bondurant, some ranchers still feed cattle using horse-pulled hay wagons. This is a photo from the Dell Fork Ranch. The Bondurant webcam, one of the webcams on Pinedale Online, is at this ranch and shows the corral where the draft horses are hitched up during the winter. Photo by Barbara Ellwood.

Snowy days in Pinedale

January 12, 2008

Editorís Note: We had a gentleman from Australia write and ask about our snow. He said he has been keeping an eye on things through the various webcams and was wondering if the snow we have now is considered to be a lot in comparison to the past five years?

That got us to going back through the story archives to take a look at our past winters and see how this one compares so far to others. It was kind of like going back through the old family album. We found some really cool pictures we havenít looked at for awhile and it brought back a lot of great memories!

So here are some photos of snow from past years and links to the stories in which they appeared.

Photos by Barbara Ellwood, Arnold Brokling, Alan Svalberg, Cat Urbigkit, Scott Almdale, Green River Outfittes, and Monte Skinner as indicated. Other photos are by Dawn Ballou and Clint Gilchrist of Pinedale Online.

    Long icicles
    It has to be "warm enough" to snow, around freezing temperatures. If conditions are right for a bit of melting, it can make for really long icicles that refreeze and grow.

    In the winter of 2004, the snowmobiling was great everywhere. Off-trail riding was awesome, except for the occasional crash part. March 2004 photo. Photo by Alan Svalberg.

    Blowing Snow
    At times, blowing snow can create white-out conditions making it near impossible to see the lines on the highway to stay on the road. When it gets too bad, the highway department may close the road to travel. This photo is of US 191 coming into Pinedale in March, 2007. Photo by Cat Urbigkit.

    Moose Alert
    It is not uncommon for wildlife to share our lawns in the winter. You have to be careful sometimes when opening your front door and coming face to face with deer or moose. March 2004 photo.

    Snow Plow Driver deeds
    This is why the Town asks people to move their cars off the street and alley rights-of-way so they can plow during the winter. Those who don't move their cars can find them buried in the path of the snowplow, either waiting until spring to refind it or spending a lot of hard work to dig it out. This photo was from the February 2004 snow storms in Pinedale.

    Big Snow, Big Fish
    Everything might seem way out of proportion in this photo! The big fish is the angle looking at the back side of Faler's General Store (now Ridley's). The truck is dwarfed by the snow pile next to the corner by Rendezvous Pointe Senior Center. This was from the February 2004 winter snow season.

    Scott Almdale took this photo of a snow-covered highway in February 2007. This snowy road gives the appearance of a roller coaster ride. Scott descrbed it as, "A scenic county road in Sublette County. I think all county roads in Sublette County should be designated as national scenic roads!"
