Gary's SPOT

Dear Friend Gary left yesterday morning.  Today, he's well into his long hike of the Teton Crest Trail.  You can click here to follow Gary with his SPOT device that beams a satellite signal to a website.  really cool stuff.  His small group of four hikers just crossed Jackass Pass and are roughly about 8600 feet on the north end of the Teton Range.  The trail is etched in the west side of that mountain range.  The screen shot below shows the general route they've taken since leaving their vehicle yesterday afternoon.  If oyu go to the link above, you can zoom in with either a satellite view or a terrain (topo) view.  It's awesome technology.  That's upper Jackson Lake in the right portion of the graphic below.
