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...

Smugmug Acquires Flickr!

Talk about timing! Due to a variety of problems that I've been having with Flickr, I was seriously considering going to another photo share website to post/share and store my images. Was looking at PBase and SmugMug. Just went to the SmugMug website to check out their plans and pricing and guess wha...

Re: Camping near Cooke City

I think that I may have another option for you...the NFS Crazy Creek Campground. It's located right off Hwy 212 east of Cooke City and sits high on a bluff overlooking Crazy Creek. The campground was renovated by the NFS a few years ago when the they were resurfacing Hwy 212. Been past the entrance ...

Re: Question for Canon 5D3 & 7D users

I hear ya! I've got 4 cameras that I use and a camera bag that's used exclusively for storing the different camera batteries and chargers. The two reasons why I bought my FTC passenger wagon (van) back in 2011 was because it seemed like the perfect vehicle for a solo Yellowstone camping photographer...

Re: Question for Canon 5D3 & 7D users

Loonphotog, I charged one of my STK batteries early yesterday morning. I bought 2 new ones in June 2017. Took a walk along the River to photograph some geese after the battery was fully charged. And my 5D3 ran great. However, I just checked the battery again (less than 24 hrs later)and now it's almo...

Re: Harlequin Ducks

Max is right. I think your best bet would be in May. I looked for the Harlequins for years in June but only saw them once. I was always a bit too late. However I've often seen the great blue herons and their colony of nests just north of LeHardy Rapids....very cool. You'll also find a few trumpeter ...
