no worries about landslide

Breaking news: The landslide in Jackson Hole should not affect your stop there to visit Stitch ‘n Time during the Shop Hop.  It is directly north of the shop on the north side of Broadway/Hwy 89/191/189.  It might impact the traffic on Broadway but if you follow the directions on the map, the route will not take you by the slide.  You can also get a nice view of the slide from Stitch ‘n Time’s parking lot!  

Don’t forget about our customized map to help you plan your route along the Shop Hop trail.
