Re: Plateau Lake - July 27, 2018

That's a cool picture of a martin. We have only seen one and it was outside the park near cooke city. Did you use bug spray? The mosquitos would discourage me from trying this trail!

What a great hike! It looks just spectacular. Thanks for posting all the photos. Too bad about the fire but it seems you did all right in spite of it.

Re: Comments Welcome: Why the lack of Interest or Participation on this website?

We have posted some and we check the site fairly often. I would post more but my biggest problem is with posting the pictures. I have tried to upload pictures, but apparently am not tech savvy enough to make it happen. Pugman, I do appreciate your posts and have responded when I think I have somethi...

Re: Breaking News.... NO GRIZZLY HUNT! Grizzly Bears Protected again....

Re: The stupidity is now dangerous

Yeah. It's amazing we don't have more tragedies with the way people act. I guess when you consider that millions of people visit the parks, most act responsibly. But we have seen quite a number who are either stupid or just don't care. A couple years ago we were stuck in a bear jam around Tower wher...

Re: Breaking News.... NO GRIZZLY HUNT! Grizzly Bears Protected again....

It seems our victory in stopping the the grizzly hunt may be short-lived. Apparently congress has acted quickly to allow more indiscretionary hunting of wolves (in an immature tit-for-tat response) and seeks to make changes to weaken the endangered species act itself. Like congress has nothing bette...
