OK, finally, a NON-smoke/fire question from me! (by the way, I REALLY appreciate all the great feedback everyone has given on that topic).
So two days left now until my big 6-week road trip. On Friday I'll be heading from Fort Collins to Jackson. I'd like to take the 80 to 287 route to through Lander so that I can make a detour to Independence Rock and do Togwotee Pass into the Moran entrance to GTNP. Then there's the option of taking 80 straight through and hitting Jackson from the south, which looks to be a little quicker. Besides the Togwotee Pass construction delays (which I hear aren't that bad), any other road work that I should be aware of that might make me favor one of these two routes?
