Re: Recent PNW Bird Photos

Lovely shots, Max! The lunar eclipse was visible in SoCal about the same time it was visible in Seattle. Sat on our patio for about 3 hrs. taking pix about every 30 minutes. The sky was gin clear that night so I managed to get some decent shots. Sent a few pix to the grand kids so they could see wha...

Re: July Visit -- Planning Help

The first thing you should know is that you must have a back country camping permit before you can camp in the Yellowstone back country. The permit identifies a specific Yellowstone back country camp site along with specific camping dates. The Park needs to approve your permit application and your c...

Re: Your Best of 2018

Liked very one of your shots, Linda! You really did a great job.....you, too, Rik. Your shots of the GGO are superb!! I'm still trying to get some decent in-flight hummingbird shots. In fact, I think that if I'm patient, I might even be able to get one of the little rascals to perch on my finger. So...

Re: Comments Welcome: Why the lack of Interest or Participation on this website?

Don't get discouraged, Pugman. Historically, participation is usually fairly slow from the late fall and through the winter. But when March rolls around, most of the Yellowstone diehards will be back in force, along with many newcomers. Right now, I'm in So Cal working on my health again and trying ...

Re: Breaking News.... NO GRIZZLY HUNT! Grizzly Bears Protected again....

Bill, you may want to read this article at: https://www.nps.gov/yell/learn/nature/wolf-restoration.htm Hunting has never been allowed inside the Yellowstone NP boundaries. And, as far as I know, that's not going to change. Since you have a home close to Yellowstone, remember, that you'll always be a...

Re: Can't access this site from home

Rik, I really didn't appreciate your last reply or the tone, especially, when I was trying to help you and was totally sympathetic to your situation. Here's my last suggestion and then I'll be on my way. You may want to check out the current stability of Frontier as a company, if you haven't already...

Re: Mountain Lion Alert

Yep, I hear ya Mike. Last winter there was mountain lion that was seen by some of our neighbors in SoCal. It was walking right down the walking promenade that runs behind all the homes in the community. Haven't seen any bears or cougars, yet, around Nye. But I know they're around. I'll probably star...

Re: Can't access this site from home

Rik, I truly empathize with your situation. We live in a fairly remote area of MT, and we didn't even have Internet access until around 2005. That was one year after a mining facility was built about 7 miles from our house at the base of the Beartooth Mountains. The company needed high speed Interne...

Mountain Lion Alert

Thought I'd give folks a heads up that there's a mountain lion that's been roaming the local Nye, MT area. Just saw a pic of it in our local paper. The photo was taken with a trail camera, which was set up fairly close to our house (NE of Slough Creek). I haven't seen it, yet and hope that that I do...
