This is the work of Michael Williams. It chronicles his travels in the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National parks. A real labor of love, this site gives a great day by day description of what it's like to visit the park.

Yellowstone Chat Pages

This is my favorite chat page from a small but intense group of park supporters. It can get political here and impassioned but these folks try to stick to the facts and there is a great deal to be learned here. Quite a few posts every day. I post here under the name tspringerw
