Re: photography tour in June (5.-18.)

Brad summed it up pretty well. You're not going to see nearly as much if you concentrate mainly on hiking, but you may luck into some species that may not otherwise be found from the road. As mentioned, Trout Lake (otters) and the meadows around Canyon (Great gray owls) are two possibilities, though...

Re: July Visit -- Planning Help

For the longer backcountry hike you may want to check the Trip Reports forum. There are a few hike-centric reports in there... it may even be a good idea to PM the authors directly for suggestions in case they don't see your post here.

Here's the second part of my Brazil experience this year, featuring the non-bird life. It was a pretty spectacular trip. Our visit to the Amazon yielded a lot of great mammal sightings, including one of the rarest finds of my career and several primates. In all, we saw eleven different monkey specie...
