Travel near national parks features crowds and construction
July 14, 2021
Confused Asians, crazy drunk van drivers, monstrous RVs, nervous semi drivers, and thousands (perhaps millions) of tourists were among the highlights of a recent trip to Jackson and Pinedale.
We were headed north on Highway 287 to Jackson to attend the open house for the new home of the Hughes Charitable Foundation.
But a lot happened before we got there.
For starters, we groaned as a flagman stopped us just as a huge line of cars ahead of us headed off in the distance behind a pilot car. This was barely 8 miles from home. Was this a harbinger of the kind of trip we would endure?
