Re: Xanterra Website Reservations Horrible

Re: Latest 2020 Season Opening News

Agree Pete. If authorities would actually start using the fines and jail time, it MIGHT have an impact on others. The fine for the helicopter in the Bob Marshall area was a joke to those people. I wish the person taking the Teton video had included more license plates, but it probably wouldn't have ...

Re: Yellowstone/Grand Teton Parks May/June 2020

Deb, What great pictures and videos! I have been to Yellowstone at least a half dozen times and have NEVER seen bears. Can I take you or your grandson as a tour guide next time?! Thanks for sharing and it is great that you helped your grandson develop such love for the outdoors.

I think the first one with the dock is my favorite. Beautiful, still water. Great shots again Pete.

Nice photos and report. We were at Carlsbad years ago but didn't venture onto Guadalupe. Now I wish we had. Thanks for posting.

Looking at the webcams this morning, it seems the snow storm may happen. Hope any hikers have made it in to a safe place.

Re: Bad Visitor Behavior at GNP

"I understand their position, and I don't blame the rangers personally. However, I feel it's just another cop out on the National Park Service's part. They're too afraid to be more assertive and aggressive at enforcing the law and regulations. They don't want to "offend" the visitors and they'll us...
