The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE), at 28,000 square miles, is one of the largest intact temperate-zone ecosystems on Earth today, encompassing Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. It is one of the world's foremost natural laboratories in landscape ecology and geology and is a world-renowned recreational site.

Greater Yellowstone’s natural diversity is essentially intact, retaining or restoring its full historic complement of wildlife species—unique in the wildlands of the contiguous 48 states. Habitats range from high alpine areas to sagebrush, hydrothermal, forests, meadows, and other habitat types. All of these are connected, including linkages provided by streams and rivers that course through changing elevations.

Sorry, folks. Felt fishing waders have to go. There are some nice rubber soled ones that have come along recently that work just fine. We have to make sure we prevent invasive species from screwing up Wonderland. Or those trout just ain't gonna be there.

On the one hand, I'm glad that our grizzly bears have grown in number. But why de-list them from as an Endangered Species? They used to roam the West by the tens of thousands, and now hardly 2% of their number remain. Why get their numbers up just so that little East Coast CEO boys with inadequacy problems who need trophies can bring their numbers back down again? It takes a long time for grizzlies to recover.

Here, in this Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, our bears of all species are protected from White hunting, and we consult with indigenous people on their rights to keep balance. We don't "manage" wildlife or rivers here. We co-exist. For the benefit and enjoyment of all Peoples.

Must be fire season.

Jackson Hole. Totality during the Great Eclipse of 2017.

Waiting for that spring thaw. Still a lot of snowy elevations. Meanwhile, check out Steamboat Geyser, the tallest in the world when she's awake. And lately, that has been a lot!

Well, that's it. I'm now completely in favor of the right to arm bears.

Welcome to the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, where bison are more important than beef, where we try to respect our superintendents, and we understand the science behind the biology, geology, and climate. We don't close our borders, nor detain children from entering and enjoying our region. We just ask that you leave the elk alone, don't go off the boardwalks, don't shoot the bison (who do not overgraze the Lamar, that's what cows do) or the bears. The only temporary closures are due to things like snow-clogged mountain passes, bison parades, and shifts in thermal features--for your safety.

Normally, we don't keep people out of Yellowstone. But Raymond Reinke, age 55, from Pendleton, Oregon is a Grade A @$$/-/@+ who taunts our bison, drives drunk & reckless, and gets into fights constantly with our guests. By the power vested in me, we sentence him to stand in front of a herd of bison bulls in a cow costume. Which is also filled with fire ants.

I've heard of ears getting cleaned, but to have Ear Spring erupt and spew out trash thrown in from several decades ago...that's amazing! They used to do it a lot. Morning Glory got clogged that way. But let's not see that happen again...the trash, that is.

In response to the killing of our beloved and famous park wolves, we officially declare it open season on trophy hunters. Yes, we support the right to arm bears, too.
