Re: Quick spring trip 5/8-5/12

Dorothy, what a great report! I could feel your excitement and sense of awe and wonderment in every word. Bears, bison and playful little red dogs, grouse and eagles, moose, elk and wolves and the mighty bighorn rams. Oh my! It doesn't get any better than that! Sounds like you had a wonderful time, ...

Re: Help Needed from Nikon/Photoshop users

Mike, have you checked the Adobe compatibility chart that lists all the Nikon cameras by model and the camera's compatibility with the Adobe Camera Raw and DNG converter programs? The D7200 has been around for awhile, so you may need to upgrade your software. Here the link to Adobe's compatibility c...

MT OSPREY PROJECT - Live Webcam

Thought I'd pass on the link to the dual 24/7 live streaming webcams that are monitoring the Hellgate Osprey nest in Missoula, MT. This is my second year watching the nest....pretty interesting to watch Lewis and Iris as they try to have another family. If you're interested in watching all the actio...

Re: Can't access this site from home

Sorry you're having problems, Rik. Most likely, it's a Frontier problem! The company has had non-stop Fios Cable, billing and Internet problems across the country ever since it acquired Verizon. We had the same problem at our house in SoCal, as did most of our neighbors. It wasn't until Frontier rel...

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...
