2015-05-22 Teton and Yellowstone Parks

My final departure from Jackson Wyoming on this day took me back through the same drive that Rick and I took on May 18th. Even before I crossed into Yellowstone Part from Teton National Park, there were some big game encounters that I missed on the previous drive. Just past Moran Junction where US-89/US-26 meet US-287 the … Read more

2015-05-19 Moose-Wilson Road Re-Visited

That I did not find the Black-Backed Woodpecker does not, in my mind constitute a failure. Those birds that I did find made this outing a success … glass half full. On this day the Williamson’s Sapsucker made a nice show for me. It was also on this day that I realized just how similar … Read more

2015-05-18 Jackson to Yellowstone

This could be interesting an interesting process, as I’m an old guy so my memory might not hold up in court. Everything in the galleries (notes and images) held … Read more

2015-05-14 Pinedale Explorations

I did visit Andy’s shop the next morning before he got there, but his friend Ross popped out the side door of the shop and figured out who I was by the look of the Samurai. Andy got there a few minutes later and we all pow-wowed about places that I might want to checkout. … Read more

2015-05-13 Drive to Pinedale

It was a long drive out of Brigham City Utah to Pinedale Wyoming on this day. My first stop was precipitated by an ad hoc decision to investigate while climbing out of Logan Utah along the Logan River. This stream  is a fairly fast-moving river with steep rocky cliffs on both sides that made me think … Read more
