He brought civility, courage, history, generosity, graciousness to the forums.
Remembering here his family, too, who will miss him the most. And the legions of kids he coached.

Re: Yellowstone Park Grizzly Bear #791 Sept 2020

Here is BE Judson's channel, with a 5-minute video of the kill, and more: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8MXpi3HLZh1T_DHNPn6zPQ/videos Interesting to watch the grizz snoozing in the sun by the carcass in Deb1741's video. I was there a week later, when a subadult grizz showed up at dusk to feast o...

Trevor Rasmussen was on Day 2 of a 1,200-mile hike of the Pacific Northwest Trail in Glacier National Park in Montana when he was stopped in his tracks by a mountain lion sitting on the trail some 50 feet ahead of him. https://www.mensjournal.com/adventure/hiker-encounters-mountain-lion-on-trail/ T...

Find a bridge. Mountain behind, not too many people.
Do the deed.
Take Instagram pic.
Get ice cream.
Feel happy.

Re: Trail Runner Collides with Bear

I noticed quite a few of the cleared trails are posted for bears frequenting.
Haven't read anything this year about the Lake McDonald-Sperry Trail mountain lion that liked to linger between the horse barns and Crystal Ford -- for the views, most likely. :lol:

Re: Latest 2020 Season Opening News

Fairbanks142 Much easier for an individual Park to make contemporaneous changes to social media -- see Twitter for hourly updates on GttSR closures -- than to make changes to a site overseen by an agency of the federal government. I would also expect many users to go first to the Park's social medi...

Re: Many Glacier campsite

The clients of Glacier Guides I have met (including me) wouldn't fit the description of people needing pampering, elitists, or any other unfounded assumptions. 1.

Re: Many Glacier campsite

Why the hell are they canceling campground but still looking at opening Swiftcurrent cabins and many lodge. Makes no sense to me. Some possibilities: a. They can control the number of people in cabins and the lodge to maintain some form of distancing but cannot do so in the CG. b. Campers place hig...
