Re: Wolf at Sunrise Friday, August 21

Awesome! Love the shot with the sun! That is a good shot. No, a great one. But for me, not worth getting up at 3AM for... That...seems a little rude to post in the thread of someone else's trip report with someone else's photos they were kind enough to share. The comma I missed and just inserted ab...

Re: Is the Upper Grand Loop a must do?

While the OP has presumably already done his trip, and hopefully had a great time, to me the answer to the question is what do you want to see? Wildlife? Lamar and Hayden valleys. Maybe Madison River area. Geothermal, upper and lower geyser basins. Alpine beauty? Jeez, I've been there half a dozen t...

Re: Park Still Seeing Heavy Traffic

Interesting that it was a busy season, or at the least not slow. Out of the norm, but I hadn't finalized vacation plans when the s*** hit the fan in March. Yellowstone was a possibility, but really probably not. But travel, while not really even semi-prohibited like it was for a while, seems unwise,...

Re: March Trip to Southern Utah

Nice shots. I'm a little disappointed as I've crisscrossed that area quite a bit and you're showing me places I haven't seen. Or perhaps that's good too, I still have more to look for. But the area, "Southern Utah" or Utah's National Parks as I think of them, is stunning. Yellowstone, the granddaddy...

I can now, but couldn't log on

This is just a FYI to the kind people who put in time on this board. I tried loging on today and couldn't. I'm 99+% I had the password right along with the username. I eventually went for a password reset, used the last one I knew and it worked. I'm back on, all is well. But a FYI as others might be...

Forums for other National Parks?

Hey, this is a good one, albeit with not as much traffic as before the crash. But it's mostly good for Yellowstone, which is fine, but I visit a lot of parks. I know there's a great one for Glacier, even though it's not my favorite park, but there's a bunch of parks, is there one for NP's in general...

Re: Polarizer use in photography

I'm a National Parks enthusiast, which of course includes Yellowstone, who takes a lot of pictures. Many friends, family and coworkers rave about them, but I'm acutely aware I take nice snapshots, I'm not a photographer like Max, and others. But since I do little tweaking and no PS, I think many of ...

Interesting. Reading that article reminded me that I have an infrared thermometer. I should bring that with me when I come out.

I've done that. It was interesting and people around me found it fascinating. Mostly 180s-190s, IIRC. I forgot it the last two trips though.

Girl thrown by Bison

All over the 'net, for a day. A 9 year old girl was charged and thrown by a bison near Observation Point Trail. “According to witnesses, a group of approximately 50 people were within 5-10 feet of the bison for at least 20 minutes before eventually causing the bison to charge the group,” the Nationa...
