Sublette County Hospital District now offering Urgent Care (posted 6/26/2022)
Sublette County Hospital District
Starting July 5, 2022, the Sublette County Hospital District
will now be offering Urgent Care. This will be open at the
Pinedale Medical Clinic from 7am to 7pm, Monday thru Friday.

Administrator Dave Doorn notes, "When we administered our
Community Health Needs Assessment survey, one of the top
requests was for more access to patient care. By adding an
Urgent Care and expanding hours, we are able to better meet
the needs of the community."

Urgent Care consists of non-life-threatening acute needs,
such as lacerations, minor fractures, fevers, animal bites,
sprains or asthma.

Public Relations Director Kari DeWitt notes, "I am thrilled
we are able to offer Urgent Care, especially for the parents
in our community who might have a sick child after hours. It
will be such a time saver not to have to drive out of the
County for care."

Patients may either call 307-367-4133 or walk in to schedule
an Urgent Care appointment.

Routine Care will continue at both the Pinedale Clinic and
Marbleton/Big Piney Clinic from 8am to 5pm Monday thru
Friday. Routine Care is preventative maintenance,
prescription refills, physicals, WYDOT physicals, going over
test results and other routine healthcare visits.

Kari DeWitt notes, "We do ask if you have a routine concern,
that you make a regular appointment. That will leave the
Urgent Care free to deal with truly urgent matters."

Lab and Radiology visits will also remain on the Monday
through Friday 8am to 5pm schedule. If you need blood draws,
lab work, CT scans, ultrasounds, or other routine lab and
radiology services, please plan on coming during normal
business hours.

Of course, the Emergency Room is available 24/7 for true
emergencies. The SCHD operates full 24/7 EMS service in both
Pinedale and Marbleton/Big Piney, so someone can always call
911 for a true emergency. If it’s not necessary to call 911,
a patient can call 307-367-4133 to speak with our answering
service which can connect you with the ER provider on call if

Dave Doorn notes, "We couldn’t expand services like this
without the buy in from our staff. We would like to thank
them for going above and beyond and figuring out how to
expand access to care in Sublette County and better serve our

USFS to reconstruct Fremont Crossing Trail Bridge (posted 6/17/2022)
Expect interruptions during construction
Bridger-Teton National Forest
The Pinedale Ranger District of the Bridger-Teton National Forest is advising visitors of temporary interruptions during the period of August 3rd though September 2nd while reconstructing the Fremont Crossing Trail Bridge.

The Fremont Crossing Trail Bridge is in the 428,169-acre Bridger Wilderness and lies on the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (CDT), which overlays the Highline Trail #7094. The bridge sits at an elevation of 10,500-feet and is located roughly 13 miles north of the Pole Creek Trailhead. The existing 80-foot structure spans Fremont Creek and consists of a prefabricated steel truss trail bridge with two precast concrete grade beams and one center concrete pier within Fremont Creek. The new bridge is a steel truss bridge, without a pier in the creek, and will have wood decking.

During this reconstruction project, the Forest Service has awarded the contract to a company who will make every attempt to keep crossing access over Fremont Creek during the project by implementing a temporary bridge during the construction period. However, stock users will have to ford the creek due to limitations of the temporary bridge.

Visitors may see delivery of bridge materials via helicopter and may also see mechanized motorized tools that have been analyzed and preapproved by the Bridger-Teton National Forest. The Forest Service asks that visitors remain vigilant if they see construction going on in the area, and to exercise a heightened level of caution while in the area.

This project is expected to last for 31 days, and we appreciate visitors’ patience during this period.

This project was funded as part of the Great American Outdoor Act.

For questions or concerns about this improvement project, please contact Jay Sammer, Pinedale District Wilderness and Recreation Program Manager, at jason.sammer@usda.gov

Sherman Guard Station Open House July 1st

Sherman Guard Station to celebrate re-opening (posted 6/16/2022)
Public invited to the Open House on July 1
Bridger-Teton National Forest
The Big Piney Ranger District of the Bridger-Teton National Forest has re-modeled the Sherman Guard Station in preparation for a public grand re-opening celebration to be held July 1st from 2-6pm. Hosted by the Big Piney Ranger District and the Sublette County Historic Preservation Board, this open house day will include light refreshments (hamburgers, until gone) and interpretive signs for a self-guided walking tour of the buildings and grounds. Beginning July 2nd, the Sherman Guard Station will transition into two rental cabins available to the public through a reservation system on recreation.gov.

Recent Forest Service re-modeling work on the rentals includes painting the interiors and installing wood stoves for winter heating. Historic photographs and old maps were framed and now decorate the walls, courtesy of the Sublette County Historic Preservation Board. Work is continuing on the fences which surround the Guard Station compound.

Located 18-miles west of Daniel on the Horse Creek Road, the Sherman Ranger Station site was one of the half-dozen original Ranger Stations on the Wyoming National Forest, established in 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt. Usually located at or near the forest boundary, the early ranger stations were generally spaced "a day's ride by horseback" from each other.

From Sherman, the nearest other stations were Hoback to the northwest and Snider Basin to the south, both of which are also on the Big Piney Ranger District and seasonally available for rent.

The stations were built for the early Forest Service district rangers to live in and work out of. Over the years, ranger station building complexes were upgraded and replaced, so the very earliest buildings are gone. At Sherman, in 1933 and 1934, the Civilian Conservation Corps constructed a small office/dwelling building and a garage/workshop. These are the two buildings to be made available for rent. From 1912 to 1930, Sherman served as the year-long headquarters for the Sherman Ranger District. From 1930-1937 it was used as a seasonal/summer headquarters for the district ranger. After that, the station was used less and was called a guard station, only intermittently occupied by seasonal workers. Notably, in 2002 it was the staging area for fire crews fighting the 3600-acre Mule Fire.

For more information, please contact the Big Piney Ranger District at 307-276-5800, visit https://www.fs.usda.gov/btnf, follow the Bridger-Teton National Forest on Facebook @BridgerTetonNF or on Twitter @BridgerTetonNF.
