Re: Slough Creek

If you want to get a site on opening day at SC, it's gonna be hard. You probably won't be able to get a site unless you're willing to spend all night waiting for the barricade to be removed on the CG entrance road. The barricade is usually set up by the outfitter's horse station, where people can tu...

Re: Slough Creek

Getting a site at SC is very difficult, at best. On opening day, there may be as many as 20 cars in line with all the people waiting to get a site at the campground. There are less than 20 sites now so the competition for sites is fierce. That being the case, concentrate on getting a site....any sit...

Re: Yellowstone Trip June/July

Alicia, if you can, be sure to check out the meadow and the area between Sites 11 and 13 at SC. Site 13 (the old site 26) has been our favorite site for years. What makes it so special? That's where you'll find the local red fox, coyote and badger, when they're out on their daily hunt. They passed t...

Re: How early is too early?

If you want to visit the Park early in the spring, it's important to keep a close eye on the current weather and road conditions in and around the Park as well as on the status of the Park's general stores, service stations and campgrounds. Most don't open until late May or June so Park services wil...

Re: End of May, 2017

Well done, Rick! Seems like we always miss each other by a week or two. This year we didn't get to the Park until mid June. Next year, I'm going to bring a GoPro camera and an extended pole up to Trout Lake. Met a camper two years ago who had a GoPro and he took the most stunning video of the trout ...

Re: Yellowstone kills aggressive bear near Heart Lake

Based on the chronological history of this young griz (which appears in the press release) I bet many people have the same concerns as I do. In 2015, the young bear began exhibiting bold behavior toward people. So, how does the Park discern "bold" behavior from "curious" bear behavior or the behavio...

Weather Alert

Heads up if you're heading to the Park. We've had snow in the Beartooth's the past two nights. Not much along the north slope but enough to make the roads icy and hazardous. Looks like there are some road closures in Yellowstone along with a weather alert. Thought you might like the Park link if you...

Re: Replacing camera memory cards

Max, I looked at the memory card wallets when they first came out (many, many years ago). Just checked the specs on the current ones from TT. They're still made out of nylon with no mention if the wallets are 100% waterproof or not. That's why I prefer doing "the baggie thing". Here's my rationale. ...

Re: Replacing camera memory cards

Hi Alicia! You're probably going to get some different answers to your question because the answer is fairly dependent on 1) the personal philosophy of the photographer, 2) whether or not their camera is programmed for back button focusing 3)how many pix they normally shoot for an event or how long ...

Re: Yellowstone Trip June/July

Rich S. If you want to see elk at the end of September, I would try driving over to the Mammoth area..in/out town, by the Mammoth Campground, the hills and fields just east of Hwy 89 and by the Mammoth Terraces. The elk gather by the Terraces at night. The thermal landscape helps keep the newborns a...
