I have registered for the Feb 7, 2016 tour. I would be happy to hear from anyone else who has signed up for this tour.

I don't see a start time for Monday. Could someone be kind enough to leave me a msg at the hotel front desk? Or post msg here?
Helen Sternheim Sep 27, 2015 at 02:31 PM

You usually get a detail program with times for the different activities the first day of your program.

Sue Eley Sep 27, 2015 at 11:11 AM

Looks like I'll be a bit late. Around 9pm. Hope to catch some of the blood moon

For 27 Sep program: Is there a chance the upcoming session will be impacted or terminated early if the National Park is closed if the Fed Gov't "shuts down" on 30 Sep? I assume the photo class would continue, but instead would travel to nearby areas outside the park's boundaries? CR
Sue Eley Sep 22, 2015 at 04:35 PM

Thanks for the heads uo, Cindy, I'm traveling in Canada and rather out of touch with our government

Cindy Rhodes Aug 26, 2015 at 03:31 PM

My husband, Bob & I will be attending the 27 Sept photo class - driving from Sequim, WA. What types & sizes of cameras & lens are others bringing? If someone has attended this class before in September/October, any suggestions about equipment or clothing?

I attended last year, Sept. 28-Oct. 3. Layer your clothing. I appreciated my light-weight windbreaker with hood. We had clouds, rain, snow, and sunshine! Definitely bring a tripod. There were a wide variety of cameras. You'll need telephoto lens.
Cindy Rhodes Aug 29, 2015 at 12:58 PM

Elroy - Thanks for responding. I have a Canon 18-200 lens. Will that be sufficient? How far away will the animals, etc. be?
Elroy Haverlah Aug 29, 2015 at 02:45 PM

That lens should be fine. Remember your tripod. There is a rule about how close you are allowed to different animals. You can get real close to elk and sheep, not so with bison and especially bears.
Cindy Rhodes Aug 29, 2015 at 02:58 PM

Thanks for the information. We are looking forward to it!

I'm looking forward to the Sept/Oct program. this will be my first visit to Yellowstone;driving to the Tetons afterwards. Then home to Texas.

I am looking forward to the May 2015 program. Coming in from the East coast arriving by air only and 2 hours before the shuttle leaves from the airport at 1:45pm. In the unfortunate event I should have a flight delay and miss the shuttle, anyone have other transportation ideas to get to Gardiner that day?
Tom Clune Mar 11, 2015 at 08:38 PM

I will be going on the May trip, too. I am renting a car in Bozeman and would be happy to give you a ride if you like. I am scheduled to arrive in Boseman a bit before 1 PM local time.
Carol Kurwelnz Mar 16, 2015 at 09:07 PM

Tom, at this point I am still planning to make a reservation and take the shuttle to Gardiner. However, I would like to have a way to contact you in the event I have a delay and be unable to get that shuttle. I can send you my email and then you can send me your cell phone number.Let me know if that works for you or if you have another suggestion to get your number.
Tom Clune Mar 17, 2015 at 09:06 AM

Expedia has screwed up my flight reservation, so I need to get that sorted out before I know when I will actually be getting to Bozeman. So I can't tell you yet whether I will be available to give you a ride when you may want one.
Carol Kurwelnz Mar 17, 2015 at 02:26 PM

OK.. Hope you can that straightened out with them. Let me know how everything works out.
Tom Clune Mar 18, 2015 at 09:22 AM

My travel glitch has been resolved, and I have the flight I'd originally booked. If it is possible to get me your e-mail without posting it online (does Road Scholar facilitate that sort of thing?), that would probably be best.
