The work done in the summer of 1958 had been of an exploratory nature with emphasis on the flora of the region and on general observations of the vegetation and visitor impact. As a result of these observations, Lake Solitude was found to be, as had been suggested by the Grand Teton National Park staff, a region of critical importance in terms of modification through use. Two sites in upper Leigh Canyon were found to be comparable and relatively inaccessible. These three regions were chosen as the sites for further intensive research. Reconnaissance observations were made in other canyons of the Teton Range and, for comparative purposes, in the Bridger Primitive Area of the Shoshone National Forest. Project Number 90.
