Re: A visit to Waterton National Park

DrFumblefinger ·
I love the pictures, Roderick. Part of what makes Waterton so special are its many wild animals. Almost like going on safari in America! I'm especially fond of the little bear. He looks so very lost without his mother. Hope you didn't get between her and the little one! And thanks for your first contribution to Travelgumbo!

Breakfast was great, Mac, but you can't beat the view! Fortunately no large carnivores found us while we were enjoying this break.

It was a special trip. You likely recognize the Oscar in one of the photos, digging in. Miss you and the gang in Spokane as well, but life in Calgary is nice and the nearby Rockies incredible!

Great photo's DrF. !! How close to the animals do you get ? Did you need plenty of zoom on the camera ? Me and the family always had health problems while I'm in Africa. Were you OK ?

Re: On Safari in Africa -- wildlife gallery

DrFumblefinger ·
Thank you for your comments PortMoresby and GarryRF!. Yes, we got quite close to the animals Garry, although you definitely need to have a telephoto lens and best to have a camera with a quick shutter speed. I used my digital SLR on these and shot photos in bursts of 5-6, picking out the one I like best. You need to be very careful about where you eat in Africa, maybe more so than in most places. But we traveled with a quality safari outfit (And Beyond), which not only prepared great meals,...

Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Jan, 21, 2014: Raccoon, Vancouver, British Columbia

PHeymont ·
And they are smart. When my kids were young, we used to camp every summer in Maine, at a site where raccoons came every night to feast at the cans. One year I decided I'd had enough, and brought chain tethers to keep the lids on. Worked fine, the lids stayed quiet all night. But in the morning, when we left our tents, we found that our two stryofoam coolers (which were not in use) had been shredded, all the implements from the table were on the ground, and the ropes securing our storage tarp...

Yes, that sounds about in character for them. Cute, but cunning. When there is a global Holocaust someday, it will not be the insects that take over the world. It will be the raccoons! Or at least the raccoons will be the commanders. The insects might be their foot soldiers.

DrY is vacationing this week in Cuba, GarryRF, which we know to be one of your favorite hangouts. He'll get to you when he has reliable internet connections. I posted some photos of the great Prince of Wales hotel on my blog last summer which addresses some of your questions. Here's that link if you're interested

Thanks for your comment, Vagabond. It is a great place to take kids, who are fascinated by all the displays. But even as an adult, it was fascinating to take this step back in time to how a Natural History Museum presented information 100 years ago.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Its been several years since I have even been to Banff and I haven't been to the museum since the early 80s. It is a nice look at the old Banff before it exploded into the mass tourist site it is now. I will have to revisit the museum in the near future.

Re: Yellowstone National Park in Winter

DrFumblefinger ·
Thanks so very much for making us a part of your fascinating road-trip by sharing your visit to this unique place at such a special time. It's so rare to actually talk to someone who visited Yellowstone in the winter, much less to read such a wonderfully written report and to share in your experience through your beautiful photos. I'm sorry you didn't get to see wolves in the wild, but in this you are not alone. As many times as I've been in the wilderness, I've yet to see them (though I was...

DrFumblefinger posted: A great adventure, and with great photos! I'm don't know much about the temperament of the Oryx. Gentle creatures? Cocky? Aggressive? I think of most antelopes as being docile or at least wary of humans. One of the South African guides at the lodge there confirmed that this is generally true for African oryx, but that he'd been surprised by the aggressiveness of the Arabian oryx. Maybe it has something to do with being brought back from extinction?!
