We just returned from Yellowstone and the Tetons. This was our 4th trip to the area over the past 12 years and my one big disappointment has always been not seeing bears. No more, I finally had the chance to see Grizzlies in the wild.

Actually we weren’t in either of the national parks, we were driving on hwy 26/287 in the Teton National Forest south of GTNP and the three bears were in a clearing along the side of the road. I believe we were driving the Togwotee Pass but I’m not 100% positive.

No wonder I haven't seen the bears. I've never gone that route.
I would have celebrated with a tall cold one for sure

I enjoyed our time in the Tetons and Yellowstone but that sighting made the whole trip for me.

Great photos!

We visited in mid August saw almost all the animals except for the bears.

Such a beautiful place out there!

Thought I'd share this photographer I found. I find him interesting because one of his focuses includes RV campers at night with a time exposure. Very nice composition and colors...



The photographer is Frank Hallam Day. Here's his website to give full credit.

My wife bought me a new camera for my birthday last week. Itís a Fuji Finepix S8200 with a 40X optical zoom and 2X digital. Iíve been wanting a camera with a long zoom that's relatively inexpensive and this one fits the bill (on sale $229). One feature of this camera is the burst mode (continuous shooting) and I canít wait to try that feature in a sports setting. I havenít had much opportunity to test out the camera but so far Iím really happy with it. Here are three photos of the same scene. In the first photo there is an Egret near the bridge (wide angle 24mm). The second photo is zoomed in on the Egret to the max 40X (960mm). The third photo is zoomed the additional 2X digital. Overall Iím pretty satisfied with the results. The image stabilization works pretty good too. Those three shots were handheld.

Happy birthday, Bob

Can't beat another camera for a gift! I nice superzoom is very handy and a good thing to have. Amazing handheld shot of the egret from that distance.
