Hey Everyone,

I have an internet connection this morning...BTW, as usual, it was completely foggy an sunrise...and raining. LOL, and of course, I pitched my tent in the rain last night too. The weather just turned and is beautiful right now. I am going to go find some critters until sunset this evening. Puffins in the AM tomorrow, and one last stab at Cadillac Mountain on Saturday morning. I really want a nice shot from there. I have NEVER gotten good weather on Cadillac Mountain...but I have seen some beautiful shots from there (and am looking at a really nice one on the wall of 2 Cats...a restaurant on Cottage Street that I highly recommend).

NPS Releases Draft Range of Alternatives for Yellowstone Winter Use Plan
The good news-the Park Service listened to our collective scoping comments from earlier this year. Our comments have been incorporated into the just-released draft, Six Alternatives for the Yellowstone Park Winter Use Plan. These alternatives will be reviewed over the next few months and will serve as a critical part of the draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that will be released for public comment.
