We will meet at the “South Park Put-In” on the Snake River roughly 5 miles south of the intersection of Wyoming 22 and Hwy 89 (Albertson’s junction). There are two put-ins at this bridge. We will meet at the downriver parking lot just south of the Snake river bridge on the left-hand side of the highway. It’s a large, developed parking lot and very visible from the highway.
Expect specific correspondence from SSI as we near the course date. We will be finished with class on the 5th by 3:00pm, allowing you to drive to Tetonia, Idaho for the Roundup. It is roughly a 1 hr drive from Jackson to the Roundup meeting site.
