Grand Teton Businesses Brace for Solar Eclipse Rush

Thu Jul 27, 2017

A fool’s folly come Aug. 21 might consist of rolling out of bed at the normal hour and cruising up to Grand Teton National Park on a quarter-full gas tank with no food, water or particular destination in mind to view the total solar eclipse.

A serene viewing experience of the moon slipping entirely in front of the sun with Teton views is considerably less likely than catching glimpses of the much-hyped solar event out of a car window in an endless line of traffic. Remember to turn on the headlights.

If winging it is a priceless pastime and a detailed plan isn’t in the cards, consider what’s coming. It’s important for eclipse-viewers to have realistic expectations of what they’re getting themselves into, Teton park spokeswoman Denise Germann said, according to a story by the Jackson Hole News & Guide.
