Announcing TravelStorysGPS v2.0 – New Stories, Photos, and More



There’s never been a better time to download and enjoy TravelStorysGPS – now with an intuitively easy interface showcasing beautiful new images, never-before heard stories, and all new tours in and around Jackson Hole and Wyoming. This free app offers GPS-based stories about local history, geology, wildlife and more including a fun channel tailored just for kids. The Land Trust’s Highway 22 tour has been completely re-imagined for version 2.0, with updated and new stories, new photos, and an optimized user experience.

One of the new stories is a thrilling account of what it was like to cross the river before there were bridges – or cars – triggered as listeners cross the Snake River to and from the town of Wilson. As the bridge approaches, the story of New York City-raised author Grace Gallatin Seton-Thompson’s harrowing river crossing in 1898 is vividly depicted. The narrator recounts Grace’s own words: “Had my hair been of the dramatic kind that realizes situations, it would have turned white in the next ten minutes.” The story goes on to illustrate the near-disastrous and dangerous water crossing.

The Jackson Hole Land Trust has been a partner of the TravelStorysGPS app since its inception in 2012, when it was created in partnership with the Jackson Hole Land Trust, Grand Teton National Park Foundation, and one of the country’s leading conservationists, Story Clark. In addition to re-imagining these original “beta” tours, version 2.0 comes with three new tours – the Historic Downtown Jackson Self-Guided Walking Tour, the Jackson Hole Airport Info & Public Art Tour, and the Indian Wars of Early Wyoming tour – with more tours slated to be added.
