Re: May 18

Sorry that the Tetons weren't very productive for you, Rik. I know how frustrated and discouraged you must be. If it's any consolation, I can recall a few years when I never even saw a bear at Slough Creek or any place else in the Park, for that matter. Sad to say that some years are just like that....

Re: May 17

Rik, thanks for the report. Did you get any pix of the stranded calf at the Confluence? I saw something similar happen back in the 80's at Slough Creek. It was an incredible sight. A mama moose was leading her calf across the Creek, when the strong current, without warning, lifted the calf right off...

Re: May 11 and 12

Rick, I usually order the "chore boot"s online from Walmart. Shipping is usually free and the package is delivered right to our house. Rain boots have gotten pretty popular the past few years. So if you've got a Walmart near by, consider giving them a call. Or you might even call/check with the Walm...

Well, once again, it looks like I'm going to miss you while you're in the Park, Rick. Got lots going on right now, so we aren't going to the Park until mid June. Hope you have a great time. Looking forward to seeing your trip report and pix. BTW, about ten years ago I started wearing rubber high-top...

Re: May 11 and 12

Thanks for the posts, guys. Looks like you really hit the jackpot spotting bears. Kind of reminds me of the year that I logged 52 different bear sightings over a two-week period in June. :o Hope your luck continues. It's a glorious morning near Nye...absolutely beautiful. Mayflies are all over our h...
