Brilliant linear photo-essay! It was like you were piping a live feed from "HD video recorder glasses" to me/us.

That fox reminds me of our local foxes. As I was progressing building our stone stairway up to the house a few years ago, a healthy red fox sat on the keystone step (roughly 8 feet elevation above me), crossed its front paws, lay down, and watched me for ~3 hours. I relented, and fed it fat white worms I was digging up excavating the base. This summer, the fox had a litter (a few hundred feet behind the house, in quite forested area); well, one of the litter took to our front gallery. It sits there early in the morning, most mornings, surveying our side lawn area. This little one has now grown substantially, and has taken up residence on a stone platform at the top of our driveway.

Nice camper & rig, too [emoticon]

Cheers,

Thanks for the pics and report.
Any idea if its to hot already in June?
Thanks again.

My July 2006 experience was actually an unusual heat wave, although it was part of 2-3 years of abnormally hot summers. I'm no expert but the problem with June is more likely to be high stream flow from snow melt runoff, especially where I was in the Northeast corner on Slough Creek and the Lamar. You may be okay on the Firehole and Madison rivers that time of year. I'd suggest looking at the streamflow data on the USGS website and try to schedule shortly after peak runoff for the water you want to fish, or look for a river past peak flow during the time frame you have scheduled.

Great trip report - thanks! Loved the commentary on the interesting things you ran into!

How long did you spend on the trip? Hopefully you didn't drive straight through all those states! I know we are putting off any trips out west till retirement because of the farness - and you started out even farther east than us. [emoticon]

Loved it - thanks! Good memories, from YNP and from the Tpke tunnels (knew all of those well as a kid).

Glad you enjoyed it.

Actually, yes. Most of those states I did just drive through. I'm not retired, yet, but I am self employed so I have a pretty flexible schedule. Unfortunately I did have a project scheduled for mid September and didn't want to wait until that late in the month to head out so it was 3 days out, leaving the Saturday before Labor Day. I spent Monday night at a Montana fishing access site near Red Lodge MT so I could cross the Beartooth pass first thing in the morning and get into the park fairly early Tuesday morning to get a campsite at the first come first served campgrounds in the NE corner. I spent 5 nights in the park then headed back allowing enough time to check the dinosaur tracks but making sure I crossed the Bighorn range still in daylight. Once I am retired and have no schedule to worry about I'll be making a lot more stops along the way. As it is, I'm thinking next year will be a visit to Rocky Mountain NP. That's about an 8 hour shorter drive.
