Re: Mammoth CG and RVs

Mike, were you able to get a site at Mammoth for your April trip or did you have to go elsewhere?

Re: Good News On Soda Butte Creek Cleanup

That's great news about Soda Butte, Mike. It's one of my most favorite fly fishing streams in the Park. Good to hear that it's on the road to recovery. As to the halt of mining in the Paradise Valley, I sent an email not long ago to Jon Tester (our senator) to thank him for introducing and pushing t...

Re: Mammoth CG and RVs

Mike, I think you and all the folks who usually bring a trailer to the Park may want to read this. The policy is posted at the Park's website. Here's the link to the site and vehicle length limit policy. It's posted on the campground details page and says, "Sizes are for total length of vehicle and ...

Re: Got Some Pix for You

The whitetails are back and so is George and Greta (the mated goose couple) I've also included a pic of the north slope of the Beartooth Mtns. The Park is on the other side. Sorry it took me so long to get these pix posted. But I think that my Flickr privacy settings may have changed when I went bac...

Re: Got Some Pix for You

It still isn't working, Steve. Perhaps I need to allow the downloading of images on my Flickr account. I went back to a Flickr pro account recently and it looks like the downloading of images is prohibited... even for the image owner. That might be the reason why I can't get the BBcode. I'll check i...

Re: Bathrooms Open in April

April has always been a tough month for finding services of any kind in the Park. And the govt. shutdown most likely made the bathroom situation even worse. From what I've been reading in the local newspapers, though, the Park has had many local volunteers cleaning the bathrooms. And some of the loc...

Re: Quick in and out March 12

Thanks for the report, Guys. I bet we drove pretty close to your house when we were driving home from SoCal last week. We usually drive by Henry's Lake on Hwy 20. In fact, that snowstorm you were trying to avoid hit Nye as soon as we got home. And it's been raining, snizzling and snowing, off and on...

Re: Brief Park Update

Bless you, Mike, for taking the time to post such a great trip report. I put every word in my memory bank. Looks like the wildlife are in all the usual places. For anyone who's interested, the north slope of the Beartooth Mtns is still socked in with heavy low lying clouds and a mix of rain and snow...
