Mike,

Your site gets better and better,

I just returned from a trip to Glacier, Roosevelt, Yellowstone and Grand Teton NPs. As you surely must know, the weather has been awful out west the last few weeks. From the time I arrived in Glacier on September 3rd and returned home from Grand Teton on September 16th, I was plagued with rain, heavily overcast skies, mist and fog. Glacier was a complete washout. My thinkTank Hydrophobia got a real workout as did the D4's robust construction. I cannot recall a trip that I've ever taken a trip out west that has had such prolonged poor weather. On the plus side, as you mention, the fall rut is in full swing, particularly in Yellowstone in the Madison (elk), Lamar & Hayden (pronghorn, bison) and Gardiner (bighorn) areas. The cool, damp weather seemed to bring the wildlife out even during midday. In retrospect, I wish I had pushed my trip out 1-2 weeks as the aspens in Grand Teton are just not there yet and I never got a full view of the Tetons which were continuously shrouded in mist, clouds and/or rain the entire time I was there. Despite it all, the trip was worth it.

Keep up the good work,

George
