Hiking and Sandwiches

If you are hiking I strongly suggest that you keep in mind how long it will be before you eat the sandwich and how hot it is.  The fact of the matter is that as much as guacamole, tomato, coleslaw, lettuce or other similar sandwich ingredients might taste great, they break down over time and create a soggy mass of goo that is the last thing you want to encounter after a few miles of walking.  Even using a baguette to ward off the “wets” will always work.

The stores I use depend on the direction I am traveling from Teton Village.  I always try to get to them before 11:00 AM to avoid the crowds.  They are:

  • Dornans near Moose Junction on U.S. Hwy. 89/191 – If I am headed into Grand Teton National Park
  • Backcountry Provisions – If I am heading East into the Gros Ventre Mountains by way of the Elk Range
  • The Westside Grocery (Deli)  at the Aspens- If I am heading West over Teton Pass
  • Kelly on the Gros Ventre  in the town of Kelly – If I am heading onto Antelope Flats or towards Slide Lake
