October 21-24The last thing The Ranger said to us while we were stuck at Canyon was “It’s that time of year”! The only way out & the ONLY gate open was the South Entrance. But we were camped at Mammoth! How would we get back there?

Max’s Fall Trip Report, Days 2 & 3: September 24 & 25
by Max  on Tue Sep 25, 2012 7:19 pm
Day 2
A couple of patterns are emerging on this trip: fairly quiet mornings followed by exciting afternoons. Though we’re not seeing a high volume of animals, our days are punctuated by great encounters with more elusive species. If the whole week goes this way, it will be pretty remarkable.

It was a lot better this time than the weekend before. It was the first time I felt I had been skunked (wildlife). I did get some good landscape photos but never did get the big lense out.We arrived Thursday evening and headed over to Great Fountain Geyser for the sunset.

Backpacking Hoodoo Basin (NE Yellowstone) 8/4-8/11, 2012

by Sitmowm on Tue Aug 14, 2012 2:42 pm

The Hoodoo Basin, in the northeast part of the park, is beautiful but remote. From the Soda Butte hikers’ trailhead in the Lamar Valley, it takes around 17 miles of hiking up the Lamar River and Miller Creek, and then a 2,000 foot climb and an additional six miles or so to reach the actual Hoodoos.

June 2-9th Wildlife Love Affair Again

by brentawp on Mon Jun 11, 2012 9:57 am

There are many thoughts that come to mind for these eight shooting days, not the least of which is rain. But during these two four-day photo safaris I was leading we came away with amazing experiences and some great images. Not all experiences lead to photos, but most in Yellowstone do. Read the rest

Planet Yellowstone: Live from the park, part 8
5 pm The afternoon drive between Mammoth and the Slough Creek turnout came and went without any drama, and right where we planned our midway break we ran into Max, Bill & Peggy. It’s not that we can’t have any fun with just the 2 of us, but their presence sure did upgrade the break.
Max’s Trip Report: Days 12 & 13
More gray, more snow, more of the same. Details are beginning to blur since so many of these days feature the same conditions and few standout sightings. Jenn and I caught our daily moose fix with the cow and yearling on the north side of the road at Warm Creek. We passed through the Lamar and Little America, encountering very little oncoming traffic. At Roosevelt we learned why. The road was closed heading west from Roosevelt Junction.

Day 6
Jenn was starting to feel under the weather, so she stayed in on this particular morning, but my friend Brian (who’s visiting for a few days) was happy to take her spot after spending the entire previous day indoors. Read the rest

What a great beginning to the day. I was going east out of Mamoth just at first light when a grey wolf ran across the road just in front of me. It ran a short distance and stopped on a small hill.

I didn’t get out until mid-afternoon today and drove all the way to Pebble Creek without seeing anythingg significant . I figured it was going to be a lost day until I came across a black bear about 2 or 3 miles east of Phantom Lake.
