LANDER, Wyo. — Grand Teton National Park has set a record for the amount of money spent on conducting major searches and rescues this past fiscal year.
While the final tabulations are not in for two rescues at the end of September, the park has already exceeded its all-time high in expenses with more than $219,000.
Grand Teton National Park spokeswoman Jenny Anzelmo-Sarles says park staff completed 33 major searches and rescues during the fiscal year.
