Yellowstone Wildflowers

If you're in the Park this year and need some help identifying wildflowers, I thought I'd pass along the direct link to my extensive Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem wildflower collection that's posted on Flickr. All the flowers are sorted into separate color folders and then each flower pic (inside th...

Re: Where is everyone?

Hi, Rik. I'm here with warm Easter greetings for everyone from sunny So Cal! Right now, it's in the 80's while our house in MT is getting bombed with snow. Over a foot is expected. Just thought I'd check in to see what was going on with all the Yellowstone diehards, before we head back to MT. Hope e...

Re: Yellowstone kills aggressive bear near Heart Lake

BT, what kind of "other Park options" did the Park have, other than to kill the bear or relocate it? The questions that I posed were based solely on the content of the Official YNP news release about the incident at Heart Lake, along with my own personal observations, knowledge and experience with c...

Re: Katmai July 3 - 6: Brooks Camp

Andrew, your shots are fabulous! I'm so glad you had such a good trip. Photographing the Brooks River grizzly bear salmon feed and photographing the Spirit Bears of the Great Bear Rain Forest in BC have been on my bucket list for years. Had a chance to go 3 years ago but just when I had enough money...

Re: October 2017 Current conditions

If you go to the Official Yellowstone website, the Park provides all the latest info on road conditions and road closures. The north slope of the Beartooth Mountains were covered with snow this morning but the roads in the foothills are still dry. Went to Billings early this morning and saw a big he...

Re: Slough Creek

rzrpirate, if you want to reduce your driving time, gas consumption and maximize your time each day in the Park, then you may want to consider securing your campsite first, at the start of each day, rather than wait until the end of the day, when most campgrounds have already filled. That way you'll...

Re: Slough Creek

If you want to get a site on opening day at SC, it's gonna be hard. You probably won't be able to get a site unless you're willing to spend all night waiting for the barricade to be removed on the CG entrance road. The barricade is usually set up by the outfitter's horse station, where people can tu...

Re: Slough Creek

Getting a site at SC is very difficult, at best. On opening day, there may be as many as 20 cars in line with all the people waiting to get a site at the campground. There are less than 20 sites now so the competition for sites is fierce. That being the case, concentrate on getting a site....any sit...
