Re: YELLOWSTONE LIVE - 4 DAY EVENT 4-5-2018 NAT GEO CHANNEL

Finally broke down and decided to watch the last show of Yellowstone Live. I was really hoping that Nat Geo would get it right this time considering all the negative reviews on Part One. But instead of redeeming itself, Nat Geo merely added insult to injury. I mean really.....enticing and feeding a...

Re: YELLOWSTONE LIVE - 4 DAY EVENT 4-5-2018 NAT GEO CHANNEL

I was half way expecting an eagle to swoop down and snatch that owl they so ceremoniously released back into the wild. Also, I didn't like the way they seemed to romanticize the wolves as playing, when a group of them were singling out one other wolf and rather brutally attacking it in order to esta...

Re: YELLOWSTONE LIVE - 4 DAY EVENT 4-5-2018 NAT GEO CHANNEL

Yeah, it was pretty lame. Also, did it look to anyone else like the location of that shot of the two announcer guys by a wooden structure was that barn on Mormon Row near Jackson? If so, that's a long way from YNP.

Edit: I see on tonight's show that is not the case.

Re: Late August-early Sept. trip -- things to know?

I was there Labor Day weekend last year and we were treated to a grizzly bear confrontation in Hayden over a carcass. We also saw several black bears up along Dunraven. One scrambled up a pine tree to eat the pine cones. The bison rut was pretty much done. The park was crowded but not as bad as in ...

Thanks for all the replies and info. I'm now looking at that week of Labor Day, or possibly the next week.

Re: Late August-early Sept. trip -- things to know?

The elk rut usually starts around the the second week of September but it is often weather dependent. It often needs to cool off a bit. As far as crowds they will thin a little because many kids will be back in school by September but it will still be crowded. Bears are busy stuffing themselves for...

Late August-early Sept. trip -- things to know?

Hi all, I've only been to YNP in early June and once in July. I'm now looking at visiting in late August and/or early September. I'm not a hiker, so I mainly get to see things from positions that I can drive to, or are withing a short hike. I've mainly focused on the northern areas of the park, i.e....

No, I haven't heard anything from Flickr.
Dang, I had to quit using Photobucket, now maybe I won't be able to use Flickr.
Thanks for the heads-up.
Same here, and before Photobucket, I was using Webshots, which also went kaput. Now using Flickr. We'll see what happens.

Re: Vacation ideas

If you're interested in Colorado, a nice place to visit for a few days is Ridgway, which is on the west side of the San Juan Mountains. We rented a very nice house there for a reasonable price. The nice thing is that Ridgway is near Ouray and Telluride, so we were able to visit both. Yankee Boy Basi...
