I use to frequent this site & post back in 2007-2010. Living in SW Wyoming we would visit YNP/GTNP every couple of years. We use to have a Motorhome but in 2011 we sold it to buy a Retirement home in NW Phoenix. Interests have now taken us in a different direction. I am now retired & living in Arizona full-time. I am still active in my photography but subject matter is now different. I don't have anything to post at this time.
I still check this site once in a while & will say along with others that Social Media has taken it's toll.I have never signed up for Facebook or anything else but understand that posting through Facebook would allow communications with multiple sights easy if needed.
So the lack of interest is a sign of the times.. over 2200 views & only 14 posts?? I would say you need to go with the flow & think what it takes to interest folks that still travel this area & are willing to post. Posting to this site has always been challenging but sounds as it has got even more difficult.. All I can say is easier is better, you either adapt or go away. It is like Albums, 8 Tracks or VHS Tapes, now obsolete with newer technology.
With the newer cameras that download photos to your phone & from there you are can upload to the web as long as you have cell service, fast & convenient. Or the fact that so many people now take photos with their cell phones, the step to Social Media is just easy.

Just my $0.02

Wooo
Badgers are so cool
I remember how one such cute animal climbed into our house and bit the cat
We had to vaccinate the whole family.


Good luck

I truly appreciate the quality and content of these YNet forums. I am one of the many silent lurkers who do not post for several reasons, mailnly because I visit YNP less than once a year, am an amateur photographer, and no longer have a hosting service. I thank Tom for offering to help people like me. My next visit will be this summer, and maybe I will have shots worthy of posting then.
Over the years, I have particularly enjoyed the photographs and the informative trip reports. I am grateful to all of those who continue to post on the forum. Thank you.

I really hate to see the migration of people away from forums like this to sites like Facebook. Forums like this one are a much better format in my opinion to Facebook.

I did see some posts in this thread of people having trouble posting pictures. I'm new here so I don't know yet if this forum allows direct image posting. Heck, I could even help out with that to some extent. I have extra space on my web server that I could share with members who don't have any other alternative.

Winona, The 100-400 was my lifesaver! I'm still finding I use it a lot more for distance shots that I do my 600, although I have a friend who swears by his 600 on a monopod. He's from New England but we ran into him at Dunraven shooting some bighorns early one morning last spring. He was backing away to get them to fit in the frame lol!
Not sure if you have V1 or V2 of the 100-400, but if V2 you could bring along some TC's as well. I've heard they play well together with the newer lens, although I find the sharpness so nice with my 7D2 and 100-400 v2 I just crop a bit if needed. Still might be nice to have just in case tho!

I was interested to hear that the 100-400 worked for you since that is what I just bought. I thought the 600 would be too heavy and I am an amateur with family tagging along. So...not a lot of patience.

I have a FB account but it’s mainly for keeping in touch with family and friends. I belong to several groups including some Yellowstone groups but this is the best!! You all are helpful and knowledgeable about all things Yellowstone. I’ve learned so much here over the years and always feel enthusiastic when I spend time here.
Posting pictures is a lot more difficult and that’s frustrating. I hope it can be simplified. I appreciate all the hard work of administrators and fellow YNetters. I’m trying to get back in the habit of checking here daily and trying to advertise the site with my FB friends. Hopefully we can regenerate this site by being excited and spreading the love of Yellowstone!
You all are the best!! :D

Yes, Flickr is still in business, but was bought by Smug Mug and they are limiting free accounts to 1000 photos.

This used to be a hopping place. We had some hot, fast & furious discussions here. When I retired in 2012, I lost my free computer at work and lost touch with the Yellowstone world. I miss those Buck, Photodude and everyone else fun discussions. Or maybe that was on the other chat page. Some great photos have passed thru this site. Now I am checking out the old chat pages. I don't remember how to post pics. I will try to figure it out. My last trip to the park was the first week of June this year. Didn't see many wolves but did see several bears. A week in Yellowstone is just heavenly. I have been going 1-3 times a year since 1982. Is Flickr still in business? That's where my pics were

Dorothy, the cinnamon cub was across the road from Rainy Lake. The pouncing coyote was in almost the same place. I think the cinnamon was a 2-year-old, as is the black in the first picture, which was taken on the road east of Hellroaring a bit.
Thank you for liking them!

Wow -- thanks to all for posting these photos! I'm in a "winter Yellowstone homesick funk" and these really helped (both abate it and exacerbate it!). What fun they are. Loved the pouncing coyote, the black bear closeup, the GGO, the black-billed magpie flying, the moose "nosing" the other moose, the "reflecting" fox ... and everything else.

Linda -- was the cinnamon bear walking down the road near Sheepeater Cliff? Of course, most all cinnamon bears look alike, but it bears a striking resemblance to a cinnamon my sis and I saw "up close and personal" at Sheepeater.

Anyway, again thanks to all of you for posting photos!
