Talk:Grand Teton National Park

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

I've just begun a Grand Teton article, and I'm not sure where to put some addtional info about where the park is. The park is south of Yellowstone National Park and north of Jackson, Wyoming. Should that go with the overview at the top of the article, or under the "Get in" section?

Incidentally, the software seems to lose track of a user's identity if he or she uses the "back" button on the browser. I had begun this article but the software attributes my original contribution to "Anonymous user(s) of Wikitravel". It's not that big a deal, but it is a surprise.

Thanks for starting this! There is an unofficial National Park Template that may help you out, or you can look at some other park articles (eg. Denali National Park, Death Valley National Park) as guides. Normally you want enough information in the opening paragraph that someone can easily get a sense of where a place is located, but not so much that the opening paragraph becaomes driving directions.
As to the software losing track of logged-in users, that is currently everyone's favorite bug. Hopefully it will get fixed soon. -- Wrh2 15:02, 13 Jun 2005 (EDT)

Fees/Permits section[edit]

I added a bit about how the entrance stations are quite a way inside the park, and how that allows you to see parts of the park for free. I'm not fully satisfied with how it's worded, but I hope the idea is clear enough.

I don't want to make it sound like I'm encouraging people to sneak into the park, but people should also know that they can go to the airport or travel U.S. 26 without having to pay an extra $20. -- Mikito 09:30, 16 Jun 2005 (EDT)

Entrance fees have been raised in Teton/Yellowstone. Source: Article corrected on 09:08, 16 May 2006 (PDT)


Well, I've put up a section on the legal battles which led to the creation of Grand Teton National Park. These are the same conflicts which I alluded to in the "Sleep" section of the article. Boy, it's hard to condense this story from a 3 page single-spaced PDF from the National Park Service.

I think it would be good to put something about the geological history of the park. I could do it, but if anyone else wants to do it, they're welcome to the task. -- Mikito 00:49, 22 Jun 2005 (EDT)
