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...

Re: Grizzly sow and yearling cub in Little America

Rik, you can see Buffalo Creek from the Slough Creek Campground. Buffalo Creek (a tributary) flows into Slough Creek. The convergence point can be seen from Site #7. Good spot to photograph wildlife safely. There's also a large open meadow on the other side of Slough Creek that's visible from Sites ...

Re: Yellowstone Trip June/July

Dorothy, thanks for the kind words. If you park at one of the SC fishing pullout areas, I think you'll be OK with a wheel chair but you'll likely have to stay at the pullout. Unfortunately, you won't be able to get down to the Creek, though, because the foot trails are fairly rocky and steep. My bes...

Re: Grizzly sow and yearling cub in Little America

As always, beautiful shots, Rik! I got a few pix of a good-size griz swimming across Buffalo Creek in mid June. But it didn't have a cub tagging along. A few campers mentioned, though, that they had seen a griz with a cub further up the Creek, towards the 1st meadow. Might be worth checking them out...

Yellowstone Trip June/July

Trip Dates: June 15 thru July 14th We camped at the Mammoth Campground before the Slough Creek CG opened, because I wanted to photograph the elk newborns and spring wildflowers. Had a wonderful time and wasn't the least bit disappointed. Best photo ops and pix came from the upper tier of the campgro...

Re: Like to photo Birds? Here are a few of mine....

Rik and anyone else who may be interested in knowing where and when to find a male Western Tanager in Yellowstone: In early June, I've always found Western Tanagers at the Mammoth Campground. In fact, I've seen a male WT perched in the same tree for the past 5+ years. I'm not sure if it's the same m...

Re: Like to photo Birds? Here are a few of mine....

What beautiful captures! Excellent detail, super composition and tack sharp....loved 'em all! Hopefully, this fall I'll be able to post a few of my own. Got some dandy shots that I think you'd enjoy. FYI...it looks like many birds in south central MT have already begun their fall migration, so keep ...

Re: Senior Park Pass cost is increasing

MGB, thought I'd provide a little background for those who aren't familiar with the bear box project originated by the Yellowstone Foundation. Since a good sturdy bear box is expensive, the Foundation partnered with the state of MT so Yellowstone advocates from MT could buy custom Yellowstone licens...
