I wanted to throw out a big thanks to everyone to helped me plan my trip to Yellowstone and The Tetons.  I saw a lot of awesome things.

10 Grizzly,
2 black bear
2 wolves
3 badgers
1 red fox
9 coyote etc
countless pronghorn, bison, and elk
mountain goat, big horn sheep,

Places I got to visit included Bradley and Taggert Lakes, BearPaw Lake, jenny Lake.

On Jackson lake I camped and kayaked for 4 days to various spots.

Yellowstone, Mt. Washington, Avalanche peak was my favorite.  A few other small day hikes, and of course lots of geysers fumaroles etc.  Anemone Geyser erupted just feet from me soon as I walked up.  It was amazing.  Also I got to see a coyote catch some lunch, looked like maybe a pika, saw a coyote lunge at a black bear, and saw a black bear scratching its back on a tree.  WOOOHoooo

Anyways So I just wanted to say thank you for the help in planning.  I never can figure out how to post my pics on here so here is a link to my shutterfly website if anyone wants to take a gander at some pics.

No Moose? Tood bad. Sweet pic of Pilot and Index but my bias calls them Absaroka, not Beartooth MTs.

Great pics all around, I love badgers. Thanks for sharing and please come back,

John

It is a good possibility that they are the Absaroka's, my mistake.

I saw one moose south of Jackson by some farms when I was driving around.

When I saw your cover photo, my first guess was shadow mountain.  Great free place to camp, with amazing views of the Teton Range.  Nice photos.

DC is right, those are the Absaroka's, but to 99.99% of the world, no one would have a clue or care

Awesome, we went but never did much hiking, esp. in Yellowstone.  Vow to return to do both backpacking and hiking.
