Spring is Here

Spring is here and so are the grizzly bears,yesterday was the first sighting of a bear,somewhere between Lake and Canyon and some sign over at Norris.This gets my blood flowing just knowing that a trip in the park is very close for myself. Can anybody tell me how the winter was this year in the park...

Re: Your thoughts on Campsites near Lamar Valley

Here is my old truck that was really good set up,it had a pass through door that made it much easier to enter and exit,it also had a carpet kit with storage boxes along the side.I also benefited from a mid rise shell and a 8' bed https://pbase.com/mcwilliams/image/168536169.jpg https://pbase.com/mcw...

Re: Your thoughts on Campsites near Lamar Valley

Are you tent camping or RV/Trailer camping ? I personally think your going to spend too much time moving to new camp,setting up camp,taking down camp,checking in,these take up a lot more time that could be activity time.I would find a camp in the Northern Range like Pebble,Slough,Tower for some good...

Re: Flickr new account policy announced...

Thanks. One thing I'm confused about with Flickr is if they count your "Auto Upload" album against your 1000 photo limit. This album is all that is putting me over the 1000 photo limit.

The stupidity is now dangerous

Unlike the idiots of late who have only endangered themselves now we have someone discharging a firearm in the park,the reason ? wolves were chasing his dog.I am sure that this person knew that dogs must be on leashes,I am pretty sure he was aware that the discharge of a firearm in a park is illegal...
