Re: Patagonia 2019 Wildlife & Scenery Photos

Wow, Max. What beautiful photos. Seeing pumas (mountain lions) in the wild is on my bucket list. Maybe I'll have to go on your next excursion to Patagonia.

Re: Felicia's Fate: The Trials of a Grizzly Bear Mom

Thanks for the happy news! We just missed seeing the cub last week as it was wandering near the highway. It still has an uphill battle though, being so small. And Felicia does not seem to be the best mother. When we were watching them in June, Felicia growled and snapped at the cub for no apparent r...

July 10 Felicia and cub

Drove into the Tetons from Dubois on Wednesday, July 10 then up to Yellowstone and out the West entrance. For those following the Felicia and her abandoned cub saga, the cub was still alive and spotted near the Holmes Cave trailhead. We just missed it but it had just crossed the road and gone down t...

Re: Early May trip

Anyone have any updates on animal sightings in last two weeks? We are due to arrive July 11. Thank you. Just posted a quick trip report from last week. In July animal sightings can slow down a bit, but they still are there. Hopefully, you get to see lots of good stuff, but no matter what the park i...

Trip Report June 22-28

I just saw a post asking for the latest animal sightings in the parks so I thought I would give a quick update of our trip to our place by Henry's Lake. Our son and soon-to-be daughter-in-law came out from Michigan for a visit so we had to take them into the parks several days. In Grand Teton we saw...

Re: Thoughts on third week of Sept for YNP, Bozeman, Big Sky?

I have traveled Hwy 191 a number of times but have not done much exploring off the highway. I have seen a bighorn ram, deer, elk, and a moose along 191 but that has been it. In my experience on the forest service roads in other areas around the park, it is really tough to see animals. It does happen...

Re: Felicia's Fate: The Trials of a Grizzly Bear Mom

Jeff, Thank you for posting the article. Very well-written and informative, confirming many of my thoughts and concerns about the long-term situation with the bears (and also the wolves). I give British Columbia some credit for simply outlawing the hunting of grizzly Bears on philosophical grounds o...
