Re: any news for upcoming visit

At the moment, it looks like Gardiner (north gate of Yellowstone) will be getting some nice weather from mid May almost to the end of the month. However, the Beartooth Mountains have always gotten a significant amount of rain in May. So my advice is to bring along some warm clothing and some good ra...

Re: Tell your coolest Yellowstone experience

I'm so glad that you enjoyed the story. When I re-read my post, it had me tearing up, too. A lot of years have passed by since I witnessed the moose calf rescue at Slough Creek. But hopefully, I'll be able to pass on the same kind of love, respect and appreciation of wildlife, that I have, to my 2 g...

Re: Alternate routes in

I'm so glad that you've already been to the Park and are also familiar with the Rand McNally Road Atlas and AAA guides. They're wonderful resources. That being the case, I guess I'm a bit perplexed as to why you would ask about an alternate route to Yellowstone and GTNP from Northern CA. Other than ...

Re: Alternate routes in

Mike W. Since you're still in the planning stage for your July vacation and don't know where you're going or where you'll be stopping, I highly recommend that you buy a good road atlas that shows all the interstates, the 2-lane highways, all the gravel roads, the federal and state forests, mountain ...

Re: Tell your coolest Yellowstone experience

Rik, I don't think that there's ever been a year when I didn't have a pretty cool experience in the Park. I've had bears, bison, elk, fox, badgers and pronghorns wandering through our campsite and I've even had wolves sitting behind my van. But the most memorable experience probably happened in the ...

Re: Alternate routes in

Mike, if you're coming from SoCal here's the fastest route to West Yellowstone. Been taking this route twice a year for the past 3 years. Take I-15 north and drive to Idaho Falls, ID. Then take Hwy 20 north out of Idaho Falls to West Yellowstone. Hwy 20 runs along the west side of the Tetons and tak...

Re: Day tour recommendations

Grant Village Campground is a fairly modern campground located at the south end of Yellowstone Lake. It gets quite a bit of use from the folks with motor homes. You might want to contact Yellowstone to check on your daughter's pop-up. If she has a pop-up tent trailer, the Park might allow her to cam...

Re: Itinerary Help Please

Hey, Dawn, nice to hear from you, again! Although the Yellowstone and Grand Teton NP road distances don't look like a big deal on a road map, getting from place to place in GT and YNP will take you a lot longer than you think. For example, on a nice day with no traffic, it's a good 5-1/2 to 6 hr dri...

Re: Smugmug Acquires Flickr!

I just hope that SmugMug hasn't bitten off more than it can chew. Something similar happened to our cable provider down south 2-1/2 years ago. It was the classic "little guy takeover of the giant cable company" which provided phone service, cable TV and Internet access to a substantial number of peo...
