Re: A few days of fun in the park

Tim, here's the link to my Flickr page that has the pix of some of the thermal features and rock formations that can be found along the "drive through" road at the Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces. Yikes, I can't believe that I took those pix back in Sept. 2014. I took the trip with Marion D. , aka "elk...

Re: A few days of fun in the park

Tim, nice to know that you had a good trip. Hope you were able to see the unusual thermal rock formations that can be viewed along the "drive through" road for Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces. In the past, I had always avoided the area like the plague because of all the traffic and tourists. But about ...

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...
