I've been aching to go back to Yellowstone. Haven't been there since I was a kid in the 60's. Three weeks of paradise. Good for you.

Nice pics- it is a shame the trees around Green River Lakes have been hit so hard by bugs

Actually they closed the campground early on Sep 4th to remove the dying and dead trees. So we ended up dispersed camping for several days.
Good luck and good camping.

They tried to use pheramone packets attached to the living trees (the pheromone was used to alert the bugs that the tree was already attacked by the bugs) BUT it sounds like the bugs hit the trees anyway.
