"SLOUGH CREEK, SEPTEMBER"
This is a good trail to hike with three or more friends, given that it meanders through high-density grizzly bear habitat! September is no exception. The views are astonishing, and the fishing is reportedly good, but always be bear aware when traveling in the Slough Creek drainage, or anywhere else in Greater Yellowstone.

"Autumn on the bitterroot"

“BLACKTAIL PLATEAU”
Late August is an idyllic time of golden landscapes and dreamy white clouds floating across azure skies in Yellowstone’s Northern Range. The Blacktail Plateau is my favorite place in the park at this time of year. It is home to wolves, coyotes, foxes, mountain lions, bobcats, grizzly and black bears, as well as large herds of elk and bison that inhabit the area year-round.

This late October image was taken from Mount Jumbo’s summit, close to downtown Missoula.

The primitive, narrow, winding Skalkaho Highway opens from summer to early fall, traveling over the Sapphire Range from just south of Hamilton to near Philipsburg, Montana. Skalkaho Falls is one of many accessible natural attractions along this less-traveled road, which was built in the 1920s to connect mining and agricultural communities on opposite sides of the Sapphires, and follows travel routes once heavily used by Native Americans.

"BACK LOOP, PORCELAIN BASIN"
The only constant is change in Yellowstone’s numerous thermal areas, and the Back Loop trail of Porcelain Basin is no exception. It is also one of the quieter and less traveled routes in the expansive Norris Geyser Basin, although for one magical June day in 2001, the presence of a grizzly sow and her two cubs managed to keep all visitors from exploring its thermal wonders.

The Livingston Range is in the northwest portion of Glacier National Park, and a very long day’s drive from Livingston, Montana. This area, which lies along the North Fork of the Flathead River, is favored as a critical lower elevation travel corridor by large predators such as wolves, mountain lions and grizzly bears, though mining pressures just north of the international boundary in British Columbia have the potential to change that.

This picture was taken on a 45 degrees below zero Fahrenheit morning, yet this raven did not seem to mind the frigid temperatures. After Old Faithful's eruption shifted from its water to its steam phase, the raven scoured the open thermal stream to the left in search of food. It also did a very thorough job picking up crumbs and litter left behind by visitors. It is illegal to litter or feed all wildlife in Yellowstone National Park.

"ROCKY MOUNTAIN FRONT, MONTANA"
Late October weather along Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front can range from clear, warm and windy days, as in this image, to blizzards that dump feet of snow upon the plains and foothills. The Blackfeet Indians view these mountains as sacred, and refer to them as “The Backbone of the World”. Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front is the only area in the Lower 48 states where grizzly bears still roam the plains (when they are not hibernating, that is).

"TREE OF LIFE"
A Wyoming native told me that this photo couldn’t actually have been taken in “The Cowboy State”, because the lone tree wasn’t bowled over by the wind. It’s hard not to be bowled over by Wyoming’s stunning natural beauty, landscapes, and wide-ranging wildlife. Sadly, many such areas have been destroyed-or face destruction-due to unbridled efforts to develop natural gas, coal, coalbed methane, and other non-renewable energy in this natural resource rich state.

This photo was taken near Steamboat Point one Memorial Day weekend. The ice, which can cover the lake for five months, had broken up only a few days earlier, and prevailing winds had brought huge chunks of it to Yellowstone Lake’s northern shore. Steamboat Point is named for the numerous steam vents, or fumaroles, that are found in the area.

I was drawn to this scene by the shadow of the smallest tree in the picture. The Old Faithful area, Norris Geyser Basin, West Thumb Geyser Basin, and Canary Spring in Mammoth are traditionally good places to observe this phenomena.

“GRAND CANYON OF THE YELLOWSTONE”
In 1871, Hayden Expedition survey artist Thomas Moran described Yellowstone’s Grand Canyon as “beyond the resource of human art”.

This view of the canyon and the Yellowstone River was taken from the Brink of the Lower Falls (on the North Rim) during peak run-off in late May.

On this late October day an extended Indian summer gave way to Greater Yellowstone’s first real blast of winter. This view of prime grizzly habitat and high country east of Yellowstone National Park was taken north of Cody, Wyoming along State Route 296, more commonly known as the Chief Joseph Highway. Grizzlies are slow to mature and to reproduce, and require vast amounts of undisturbed, intact habitat to make a living.

Yellowstone Lake usually freezes over by late December, and ice-off typically occurs by the last week of May. This cold mountain lake is North America’s largest at high elevation (over 7,000 feet), and together with its tributaries represents the last remaining stronghold for the native westslope cutthroat trout. May through July are especially important months to be wary of grizzly bears that fish the lake’s tributaries for spawning cutthroat.

In summer, bison, yellow-bellied marmots, red squirrels, waterfowl, and the occasional grizzly bear are sometimes seen.

Gray wolves (canis lupus) still roam across wilder regions of North America and Eurasia, inhabiting rain forests, boreal forests, arctic tundra, and ecosystems in between.

Evidence of scent marking can be seen to the bottom left of the front (larger) foot.
