On the Greenway

Where Nature and People Meet

Story and Photos by Joyce Driggs Edlefsen

Long before the south side of the Henry’s Fork Greenway in St. Anthony was named, we skied along the route every snowy winter.

On cold, crisp mornings when the skies were deep blue, the frost sparkling, and the snow blindingly white, we would snap our boots into our skis and slip into the winter wonderland right out our front door. The route followed the famous Henry’s Fork of the Snake River for about a mile southwest of downtown and offered us a chance to watch bald eagles and trumpeter swans making a living along and in the river. We loved it. And we jumped at the chance to be able to walk the same route in other seasons.
