Re: Badgers, Foxes, Moose, Eagles, Wolf -- and bison trees bear!

Hey Dorothy, Sounds like you had another fantastic trip! The bear/bison interaction would have been great to see. I agree that no matter how often you see a particular species of animal, you never know when you're going to witness a different behavior. That mamma was definitely leading the bison awa...

Re: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service considering euthanizing grizzly sow Felicia

Thanks for the update. A very well-written article. We were through the pass a couple of weeks ago and the signage had changed. Instead of threatening citations, they were saying to use pullouts, keep bears wild, and stay in your car. That was some progress in my opinion. A volunteer wildlife brigad...

Re: July 19 Wolf, Badger, and Summer Update

I thought about buying a house in Bozeman, so as to be able to have a similar situation. Then I looked at the house prices. Yes, it has just gotten crazy with the prices. Fortunately, when we bought in Island Park 5 years ago, it was the last relatively cheap place around the park. Now it's as bad ...

July 19 Wolf, Badger, and Summer Update

The park has been very crowded this summer. One used to be able to slip in the west entrance before 7 AM, but now the rangers are manning the gates at 5:30 AM. Some mornings we have seen it backed up through the town of West Yellowstone by mid morning. But the park is still beautiful and the wildlif...

Pictures Added Scary Moose, Bear Encounter Glacier 6/21

We have added a few pictures to our previous post about the fox, moose and bear encounters in Glacier. Sorry, no pictures of the moose and bear, but Karen did get a couple of the fox.

Re: Glacier Hike Scary Moose, Bear Encounter June 21

When did they implement a reservation system for Going to the Sun Road? (We haven't been to Glacier in the last 10 years, even though we consider it as one of the most beautiful parks in the U.S.). Do you have to take buses now like in Zion National Park, or can you still drive your own vehicle? Th...

Worries About Fire Season

For those coming out to the parks later this summer, I'm concerned you may be dealing with fires and smoke. This is by far the driest we have seen the area in the last five years since we have been spending the summers here. The snow melted early and we have had very little rain or snow in June. The...

Re: Glacier Hike Scary Moose, Bear Encounter June 21

Oh -- and was it pretty crowded? We've been thinking of taking a day or two out of our usual Yellowstone/GT trip to go up to Glacier, but keep getting reports of how crowded it is, that parking lots are full, the Going to the Sun road is now resevation only and you wait long periods of time just to...

Pictures Added Scary Moose, Bear Encounter Glacier 6/21

We decided to take a quick trip to Glacier to celebrate our anniversary. We wanted to hike and also see wildlife. The hikes were beautiful. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51292271176_0a859d6dca_k.jpg DSCF9938 by William Reinke , on Flickr https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51291527257_89400dcb...

Re: Snail Kites on Lake Kissimmee

Rik, Great photos!!! I always wanted to see one but never have. Are they still endangered or have they made a comeback?
