Bye bye, DU.

I'm headed out west, first to Spearfish Canyon, then Devil's Tower, then four days camping in Yellowstone National Park! The park opens Friday and we'll be there! Then two days in the Grand Tetons. Woo Hoo!!!!

I'll post pics when I return.




Love you all (yes, even Hillary supporters!).

And now I must forgive

Fully half of all Yellowstone visitors go in July and August. Most of the remainder in June and September.



Yeah, I've had reservations for months already.

22. Good, glad you have them

It's not like it has ever been before. All expectation from years past have flown out the window just like any expectation that the drumpf would never get as far as he has in the election cycle. In 2014 the vsitor count was 3.6million visitors, 2015 4.2million... this year probably gonna hit 5 million. The infrastructure can barely handle what happened last year and even the Superintendent admitted that "We are in crisis mode with the numbers we are seeing." And changing any policy that would be effective will take at least two years to implement due to the need for public comment periods and all the due process involved in changing a public policy.

I've been here for over a decade and been a ranger up till this year... it's a madhouse from day one, the park has been open since 4/15 the campgrounds and lodgings open Friday and most were already booked for this by August last year unless there are cancellations. I refuse to work there ever again until there is a cap on how many people can enter/day. We're anticipating 5 million visitors this year, I'm even bailing out of the area and shopping for new digs away from here... and this has been my life for a long time. Most of the local businesses are selling to three entities, half of them sold in the past 6 months. The entities are Delaware North (a huge corporation); Panama Papers-rich Chinese (all transactions cash in fist-a tell-tale sign); and Mitt Romney and friends/extended family. I know all these sellers so I am not just blowing steam.

I do hope you have a wonderful trip, just anticipate lots of traffic delays throughout the park and things you never ever want to see going on inside a national treasure like this.

And have a safe journey... and I sincerely do hope you beat most of the crowds but they have learned to show up on day one and keep coming until closing in November.

61. I took a trip through the canyon with some international kids on holiday about 40 years ago.

 


We wrapped a bottle of wine in a wet cloth and set it in a tree near the campground, it was really good that night under the stars.

I'm glad I got to see that.

69. Thank you for all your years of work there! We had a wonderful visit while you were there...

Our family came out by train to Glacier and then south to Yellowstone. An old friend, John Kerr was one of the 'wolf rangers' then and took us out one magical morning to see the critters roaming wild.

We remember so vividly him advising us to go further then most. The popular sites were so crowded like you said, but he counseled us to go 100 yards beyond the parking lots and the big attractions and you'll be nearly alone. He was right. Once we got out and away the quiet beauty of the land suffused our senses and renewed our gratitude for all the wise people that worked originally to reserved these wonders as public land. And we certainly were thankful for you folks working there in the present days.

Trip of a lifetime!

Cheers to you, 2naSalt, and all your compatriots!

73. John is a pal

and a fantastic ranger. I had a different "wildlife patrol" ranger for a mentor, it takes a special kind to handle the folks who don't care that they aren't supposed to try and pet the animals with tact and diplomacy when they curse at you and all that. Seems there's different type of visitor and they come in droves.

I am glad you have great memories of that trip and I do hope this year will be pleasant, I just want to warn you that it could be disappointing as it was for many who go regularly.

And thank you, there are many visitors who are truly wonderful people and I enjoyed many whom I met on the job.

Are you going to the northern part of the park for wolf watching?

79. We'll be exploring the Russian River and Petrolia coast of Northern CA this summer. John is

a friend from his years at WGBH public television in Boston. Say hello from us if you see him. Tell him Sharon (with the wild earrings) says hello.

Again, thanks, and good luck in your next adventure.

80. Oh

I was thinking I was still conversing with SCUBA, my mistake.

Russian River was awesome last time I was there, used to have a big hippy-raggae party on the river every summer. been a while since I was there but it was so memorable I have never forgotten.

If I do see John I'll do that but the chances are slim, I have jumped to a different agency that will have me out away from the park, not willing to go there until things change, I don't even want to go in just for a short time. But I think he's in the Mammoth District so I might cross paths with him in my new job anyway since we're both the the public safety/education business. I won't be too far from the park at times, I'm just glad I won't have to go in the park to work. Last year it took over an hour to get from the west gate to the loop system every day. I had to use the LEO entrance many times to get around the gate just to get to my post... and break up at least one traffic jam on the way.

Anyway, have a great time in northern California!!

If I do see John, I'll surely pass the greeting along.

And to all who are traveling this season, have a safe and pleasant journey!!

112. Thanks!

I anticipate some traffic but I have no need to go into the park this year and that's why I am happy! All the roads I will be taking this summer lead away from the park. Addressing the needs of over 2000 individuals, most in pairs and singular people at a time, each week is just not my cup of tea. I'll be out communing with the animals and taking wild flower inventories in study areas instead, what I really enjoy even more... solitude at work!! And when I am doing public ed, It will be an entirely different setting. I may start a lecture service after this, I have one lecture at my alma mater next semester, if it goes well, I will be looking for any opportunities that may come in that line of work... one of my former professors invited me to do this one.

I plan on a great summer, hope everyone else gets to have one too!

54. Yellowstone is the most amazing overall natural phenomenon I've ever seen.

Just after the park opens and just before it closes are the best times to go there. It gets cold at night but there aren't many tourists there at these times.

We like to backpack the Winds and the Absarokas too. Wyoming is stunningly awesome.

Have fun, Scuba!

I have been to those places and they are wonderful.

Had an interesting experience at Devils Tower. I walked up to the overlook and as I got there a strong wind came up and everyone there headed for their cars. As soon as they were all gone the wind died down and left me all alone there...kind of spooky.

71. "Walk 100 yards beyond the parking lots and top sites...to get away from the crowds"

-advice from a ranger when we visited Yellowstone a few years back.

Have a blast, post some photos when you come home.
