Re: Food in the backpack

Tom DO NOT drink any water that comes directly from the rivers and streams unless you use a certified water purifier to filter and remove all the contaminates and parasites from the water (ie: a Bota Bottle or a purifier that's similar). Back in the late 70's I guzzled down some mountain stream wate...

Re: Food in the backpack

Tom, I use air-tight re-seal-able freezer bags to store just about everything whenever I'm camping or hiking. They're super light, air-tight and best part, they're cheap and can be purchased in different sizes at grocery stores. I always keep on hand a good supply of the pint, quart, snack and gallo...

Re: Yellowstone Trip Report - June 13 thru July 12, 2019

Rik, I was planning to go back to the Park after Labor Day. But I've decided to forgo the trip. Until I see a change on how rangers treat Park visitors and photographers, I really don't have any desire to go back, at least, not this year. Besides, I've got plenty of fall scenery and wildlife to phot...

Re: Yellowstone Trip 6/3 - 6/8

Brad, thanks for your trip report and pix. Loved your photos, including the ones on your blog! I'm sorry and truly empathize with your disappointing campground experience. We've had more than our share of negative Park experiences over the years not only with campground hosts but also with rangers. ...

Re: Yellowstone Trip Report - June 13 thru July 12, 2019

Update on my trip report - June 13 thru July 12, 2019 I thought that I had included these observations and comments in my original trip report for Bill and Karen but they don't seem to appear. So I'll do my best to recount the details in this updated post. Hubby and I noticed a number of parking pul...

Yellowstone Trip Report - June 13 thru July 12, 2019

This was one of the most unusual Park trips I've ever had. Spent June 12th and 13th at the Mammoth CG where I shot a few elk pix but nothing special. From Mammoth, we moved over to the Slough Creek Campground on June 15th. Because of the brutal weather in the GYE last winter and spring, there was st...

Re: Bear (mis)Management in Yellowstone

Bill, we just got back from the Park on Saturday, July 13th. With all the rain, sleet, snow and hail that the GYE has been getting since April, our property looked like a tall grass tropical jungle by the time we got home. I'll post a full trip report next week and will include the highlights of our...

Re: Bear (mis)Management in Yellowstone

Bil and Karen, in my previous post, I said: "please keep in mind that it only takes one visitor to unwittingly do something stupid or make one wrong move or gesture that can turn a good bear into a bad bear." IMO, the same thing also holds true for rangers. Lord knows I've seen more than my share of...

Re: The Original Rosie Black Bear

Whoa....what a nice shot of Rosie and Boo Boo, Linda. I just came across a couple more pix of Rosie from 2004. I'll add them to my Flickr photo stream tomorrow. You'll get a kick out of one of them. Rosie was standing on her hind legs sniffing the vents at the top of the Tower vault. Someone was ins...
