We drove down Gros Ventre road to the slide today.. never expecting to see the beautiful scenery we did all the way there and past it. we drove as far as we could past Atherton campground and up to a horse ranch. The aspens were spectacular and the river corridor amazing. Also the rich red mountain.. unbelievable. few people and stopped in Kelly afterwards for a sandwich. best day ever. highly recommend it!

Nice drive to Slide Lake

fly fishing
Saturday, July 07, 2012

You can drive right down to "Slide Lake", where there's a boat launch and some picnic tables. Go from June-October, depending on the snow levels.
The drive starts the climb from the sleepy town of Kelly, with some amazing views of the Tetons. As you snake your way up the road, you follow the meander of the GrosVentre River. Fly-fishing is great up here as it's a litt further out and you can find holes to yourself...something thats hard to do around these parts.
Take the fam if they don't want to spend the day on their feet. And for those more adventurous, keep an eye out for the over-hanging rock at a big switchback...the locals use this as a diving board into a pool beneath!
