Wednesday May 29. Day 7

Coffee at the cabin and packed our gear again for last full day in The greater Yellowstone ecosystem. We planned to stay around Mammoth but the lure of the Lamarr Valley overruled and off we went. We skipped the tower run and headed east a beautiful ride but nothing event full. Not much down Slough ...

Tuesday May 28. Day 6

Off to Lamar at six. Had a beautiful drive through pebble Creek and the Willows and pulled off with others to shoot a grizzly Sow and her two cubs combing the Hillside near Slough Creek. It looked like they were going behind the hill so we decided to pull around to let them come to us. As we did a m...

Monday 5/27 Day 5

Leaving Canyon, we decided on one more run to the south before moving operations to the north end of the park. Saw the great grey owl again but in tough light. Still an awesome experience. Heading back north we saw some elk near the lake, and headed north over Dunraven to petrified tree, then back t...

Sunday 5/26 Day 4

Left the room at Canyon at 6 AM, drove over Dunraven. Temps were in the low 30s and the roads were shiny but we pulled into a turn out to check and they weren’t icy. We also let a few cars go by so they could check for us, and also allow us a slower pace. Stopped at Dunraven pull out to FaceTime wit...

Thursday 5/23 and 24. Day 1 & 2

I didn’t post much of a trip report last year so I’m going to give this a shot. This is actually our fifth day, but our first with wireless service. I’ll be dictating this into the phone and probably won’t correct the auto correct Unless absolutely ridiculous! Day one was a total blowout. Delays in ...

Re: May 20 YNP

Great reports, thanks! We'll be there on Thursday, planning to explore around the Lake area two days, Canyon for two more and then Cooke City and Mammoth one apiece. Sad to hear about the pullouts being closed, and the crowds at Tower sound worse every year! I guess as long as we can pull off (withi...
