Tetons & Yellowstone May 23-26

Saturday we entered the park at Moran entrance and in less than a minute we had our first bear jam beside the first bridge. A lady told us it was 399's 14 year old daughter and her 2 yearlings. A little further down the road at Pilgrim Creek there was a single boar farther out in the meadow leisurel...

Re: Spring 2019 Trip Report

Max, I’ve been wondering when you and your trip reports would show up again. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one, especially your philosophical thoughts. I understand the hesitation to share locations or join in with a large crowd. We can all set the example by doing the right thing ourselves and ...

5/26 Day 4

<t>After a long rest and a leisurely breakfast we decided to go to Grand Prismatic Spring. But the Bison had other plans for us. Shortly after leaving the Madison campground area we came upon a Bison jam. We waited for about a half hour with no real progress and decided to bail out. We headed back t...

5/25 Day 3

It's official...We outsmarted the wolves! We left our room in Gardner by 4:30 and arrived an hour later. We only waited about 45 minutes until someone anxiously announced "They're coming"! They had been seen about 5 miles to the east and we watched them come in through the sagebrush. A black and a g...

5/24 Day 2

Yesterday we were told that Dunraven will open at 8:00 today. No such luck. With the overnight snow it was still closed but may be open later in the day. Off we go through the road construction to explore Hayden valley. We saw a coyote trotting on 3 legs because of a front leg injury. But it didn't ...

5/23 Day 1

We have eagerly read theses reports in anticipation of our own trip and today it began! We left northern Utah at 5:00 am and battled high winds all the way to Idaho, then it was nothing but blue sky and sunshine, until we got to West Yellowstone. Cloudy skies and the threat of rain! We were pleasant...

Trip Report Part 2 May 27-29

Sunday 5-27 Just as we were coming down from the top of Mt Washburn there was a coyote standing in the road. It walked to the side and continued on it’s journey trotting on top of the snow bank. We wondered if this was it’s regular hangout for the Sunday Brunch Roadkill Buffet. Beautiful scenery all...

Re: Trouble posting

This happened to me as well, Saturday evening. I thought it was just me doing something wrong.

Re: Trip Report May 24-26

Dorothy, Thanks for the kind words. There are several small pullouts along the Rainy Lake section. 2 of them just above the lake and one or two a little ways below it. They tend to fill up fast when a bear has been sighted. Next, folks just start parking on the side of the road, (wheels past the whi...

Re: East entrance road closure

Thanks for the information. We won't bother trying to go up there early tomorrow morning on our way to the Tetons. We weren't having any luck with wildlife in the area anyway. But still, it's a whole lot better than being at work! :D
