Yes, my wife and I have been there.  One summer, we visited every rendezvous 
site, except the 1825
site.  We simply ran out of time.  While in the area of Driggs and Tetonia, in 
is now called Teton Basin, (formerly Pierre's Hole) we visited a museum
and inquired about the 1832 site.  We were steered onto an elderly (over 90)
Mormon gentleman who told us that, when he was a kid, the breastwork 
(fortification) from the battle of 
Pierre's Hole was still there.  I wish we could have seen it.
