Need Sources[edit]

I know there is more to the story of Kelly and the flood, but oddly, sources on the web for this event are pretty scarce. In addition to whats in the article, I know that prior to the flood, Kelly was in competition with Jackson for the county seat of Teton County, but I couldn't find any online sources to help confirm that, so I left it out. I also know that the the residents knew that the dam was collapsing because a haystack that had floated in Lower Slide Lake for the 2 years was seen floating down the rising river. The Wyoming Tales and Trails website mentions that, but I think there's more to flesh out about the escape from the flood and its immediate aftermath. Information about how Wilson and other points along the Gros Ventre and Snake fared would also be useful; I might be wrong, but I remember somebody telling me that several bridges on the Snake were washed out? I know a bunch of this information is in a book that I once owned called Along the Ramparts of the Tetons ([1]). If anybody has that book, then please apply it liberally to this article and others in the Teton area. CosmicPenguin (Talk) 20:04, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
