It's tough (but fun!) getting ready. We're 9 days out and I'm laying things out now, will finish over the weekend. I really wish I took a pic of how I carried everything last year. The 600 was a bit too wide for the carry on with the pelican insert, so that went in the Lowepro lenstrekker. The rest of the optics went in the carry on. The lens trekker is carry on legal (at least the older one is), but it's too large to be considered a personal item. That said, since we're both allowed one carry on and one personal item on United, I'll claim the carry on and my wife's smaller backpack while she claims the lens trekker and her purse. If I can fit it all, I'll use the same gear as last year, but I'm trying to squeeze in a 300/2.8 for low light conditions.

Wonderful pix, as always, John! Looks like you had a great trip...good company and photo ops and steaks to boot. It doesn't get any better than that! Thanks for sharing your pix and trip report. :)

I will. From what I've been seeing and hearing though, it seems as though I am leaving about a week too late for the good stuff. :cry:
Rik-your timing is perfect. I've been down 3 times in the past month and did not take any photos the first two trips. The bears are coming out now and the COY"s should be showing up soon. There was some bear activity Sunday on the closed road from Roosevelt up to the Falls, some photogs walking the road. The carcass just west of the Institute had lots of bear and wolf activity. Lots of snow still at Hayden, should be getting better soon
Have a great trip!.

Did an overnighter at Mammoth CG hoping to find some nice sightings for my sister visiting from out of town.

1.
Lots of Harlequin ducks at Le Hardy. The upper walkway still has a lot of snow so use the lower if you don't like to slip and slide.

2.
Lots of Red Doggies in LA and Lamar.

Is there an easy way to reset your account that I didn't find? This could be one thing keeping people from posting.
If you use Chrome browser and autofill is active you can go to "settings/autofill/passwords" and click on the eye icon and there will be your password,that easy.

Just one extra note here - I haven't been active here for years because I haven't been going to Yellowstone in recent years. Planning a trip for this spring so I hopped back on. I had a heck of a time remembering my username and password! The system wouldn't just let me register again because my email was already linked to an account and I couldn't find a way to contact anyone to get my user name and reset my password. I had to play quite a bit to finally hit on the right user name/password combo. Is there an easy way to reset your account that I didn't find? This could be one thing keeping people from posting.
Anyway - excited to be back here and really excited to be going back to Yellowstone! Bringing the boyfriend with me, he is a bear lover and has never seen one in the wild so I'm hunting trip reports with bear sightings. Thanks for all the great trip reports and for the people behind the scenes who keep this page running!

Great photos! Looking forward to more when you get back into the park. We're heading there in a few weeks as well. Can't wait! And again, thanks so much for these photos, and all your past reports and photos.

Beautiful shots, Rik...loved 'em all! The big ram has got to be close to 10 yrs old judging from his horn segments. Looks like he's got a lot of battle scars on his face, nose and, especially, around his eyes. Was he the king pin of the herd? He's one of the most regal rams I've ever seen. Great capture.....
He was with a herd on the Old Yellowstone Road down near the river.

Only three weeks till I head back to Yellowstone, so I thought I would post my favorite Ystone pics from the last few visits.
