Re: Mammoth CG and RVs

Mike, have you considered staying at a campground outside of the Park until you can get a site at Mammoth? The Canyon Campground is 16 miles north of Gardiner on Hwy 89. Sites are only $7 a nite but they're also available on a "first come, first serve" basis. So the CG usually fills up quickly on ho...

Re: Mammoth CG and RVs

Mike, check out this link: https://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/mammothhscg.htm It should give you a better idea of what you may be dealing with. You didn't mention when you were planning to go to the Park. "Spring" covers a lot of territory, Mike. During the summer, you probably won't have a prob...

Re: Got my ticket for May

Hey, Rik. Been thinking about doing a short solo trip in May, weather permitting. Sadly, May has always been a weather transition month in SC Montana, so I need to keep a close eye on the weather before I can make any trip commitment. Will make a post if I can make the trip when you and some of the ...

Lunar Eclipse and Blood Moon

Did you see the lunar eclipse and the blood moon on January 20th? If you missed it, here are a couple of shots taken from our patio in SoCal. The sky was gin clear that night so the shots turned out fairly well. Enjoy~ https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7870/47229880781_714eb281bb_z.jpg P1060535 by Paul...

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: 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...
