Tuesday, 23 June 2009

I overslept today and didn’t get started until 6:15. I headed into the Hayden and did not see anything too spectacular. I then headed out to Lake Butte Overlook for my daily call home. On the way back I saw a nice sized grizzly at Mary Bay.

I did stop at Grizzly Overlook on the way back to Canyon and had reports of two grizzlies in the area, but no current sightings.

I did get some landscape shots at the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and I stopped at the second overlook on the north rim drive to check on the osprey’s nest. It looks like they have eggs.

Today would be an attempt at some thermal area shots. I really wanted to try for a Grand Prismatic aerial today, but the trailhead to Fairy Falls was packed. It was very busy in the geyser basins. I went ahead and went to the upper basin and just saw what I could. It was a fairly productive day, I think.

I needed gasoline and a pizza, so I headed to Gardiner. Both ways on the trip today I spent a half hour at Gibbon falls, not looking at them, but waiting to be let through the construction area, so be forewarned.

Just a little north of Roaring Mountain, I did see a nice sized grizzly.

Sorry for the abbreviated report, but it is late and I am headed to the Lamar in the morning.

I hope to see you under the Western Skies.
