22:13:25 <ynpvisitor84> so are they having Aurora again
22:13:40 <ynpvisitor84> seems very bright since the moon has already set
22:55:36 <ynpvisitor107> moon is still up although low on the horizon
22:56:05 <ynpvisitor107> that is where light is coming from
03:40:49 <ynpvisitorCC> Okay..who got to see the BEAR on the cam?
03:41:15 <ynpvisitorCC> Maybe Joe or David or Kevin can post the video
04:18:14 <ynpvisitor57> when was the bear on the cam?
04:18:41 <ynpvisitorCC> around 5:35 I think
04:19:17 <ynpvisitor57> thanks
04:20:29 <ynpvisitorCC> Bear walked right a long gravel and then heading toward the tree with the cam and toward the cabins
04:21:24 <ynpvisitorCC> someone will have the capture
04:21:53 <ynpvisitor57> may be on the overnight capture
04:22:08 <ynpvisitorCC> that is what I am hoping
04:27:05 <ynpvisitor72> CC here is the BEAR
04:28:12 <ynpvisitor57> thanks
04:31:23 <ynpvisitorCC> Thank you
04:50:37 <ynpvisitor8> Watcher and a little encouragement at Beehive.
04:50:48 <ynpvisitor72> Bubblers active
04:56:15 <ynpvisitor72> ynpvisitor8, watch the bear the cam op caught
05:11:01 <ynpvisitor72> I've got to go, catch more bears!
05:18:18 <ynpvisitorCC> Lion IE
05:27:33 <ynpvisitor8> Looks like a grizzly to me on the video.
05:29:51 <Dave from B> Morning everyone
05:30:22 <ynpvisitor8> Good morning Dave ...
05:30:29 <ynpvisitorCC> Hi Dave
05:31:10 <Dave from B> I see it was another crazy opening day. How many people were caught behind Riverside Geyser?
05:32:58 <Dave from B> Nice to finally see a bear on the's been awhile
05:33:10 <ynpvisitor8> !
05:38:20 <Dave from B> Aurum or Giantess steam?
05:38:39 <Dave from B> Looks like Aurum
05:38:48 <Dave from B> can't be sure
05:41:20 <ynpvisitor8> OF 0739 wc
05:44:59 <ynpvisitor8> Large high pressure moving in. Going to be a nice opening week.
05:58:48 <Dave from B> Yep..spending all evening outside once I get off work at 1530
06:34:05 <ynpvisitor3> Animal in the field towards Grand.
07:00:47 <Kevin L™> BH between 1000 and 1230
07:05:57 <ynpvisitor114> Gramd
07:06:11 <ynpvisitor114> Grand
07:11:24 <Kevin L™> I hate it when Gramd goes in an OF window.
07:11:36 <ynpvisitor114> why
07:11:48 <Kevin L™> No closeup
07:11:52 <ynpvisitor114> you can still see it though
07:12:38 <Kevin L™> True, but not the same. Love the spikes
07:13:36 <ynpvisitor114> wonder who is waiting at the indy lookout
07:14:30 <Kevin L™> Probably Udo
07:15:00 <ynpvisitor114> Old Faithful
07:15:40 <Kevin L™> Very fluffy
07:16:25 <Kevin L™> Interesting week. 4b Grand, Steamboat, and a bear right by the cam.
07:24:14 <Kitt> unfortunately Grand had 4 burst before park open and Steamboat erupted when Norris Basin was closed
07:25:16 <Kitt> and the bear was out too early to see the snack on a string
07:27:15 <Kevin L™> Still is an interesting week. 10 years ago we would not have known any of this.
07:28:07 <Kitt> I thought we have had the cam longer than 10 years
07:28:53 <Kevin L™> I guess it has been that long.
07:29:17 <ynpvisitor8> I remember when one frame of a coyote on Parking Lot Cam was a big deal
07:29:20 <Kitt> I got hooked in 1997 and I thought we had the cam then
07:30:32 <Kitt> I guess back then we had streaming for Upper Basin but the cam didn't zoom in
07:31:40 <Kevin L™> I know the static has been around a long time. Just thinking it is about 7 years now that I have been a camop.
07:32:43 <Kitt> well I am going to go eat breakfast which may cause Bee to wake up
07:34:11 <Kevin L™> I have to leave in 30m so make it quick!.
07:35:17 <Kevin L™> Depression looks hot.
07:36:06 <Kevin L™> Looks ie now.
07:49:15 <Kent> Need a bench at “Water In Indicator” overlook
07:49:42 <Kevin L™> AND Aurum!
07:49:56 <Kent> :thumbsup:
07:55:57 <ynpvisitor55> People trespassed into Norris yesterday
07:56:35 <ynpvisitor55> Unfair to those following the rules, they should have ticketed them
07:57:39 <ynpvisitor55> What’s the point of letting folks park on the road and walk in?
07:59:47 <Kevin L™> Enjoy BH
08:05:42 <ynpvisitor8> Here is a real time video of the grizzly seen on this morning's webcam stream --
08:09:44 <Kent> Pixel Bear. Vey good. Thanks
08:13:55 <Kent> ~~~
08:14:06 <ynpvisitor116> BHI
08:14:39 <Kent> .
08:14:40 <Kent> .
08:14:42 <Kent> .
08:16:53 <ynpvisitor34> Sure, long distance indy.
08:18:36 <ynpvisitor34> Noris is cloded, or you just cannot drive in?
08:19:02 <Kent> I was wondering the same thing
08:21:00 <ynpvisitor55> Norris Parking Lot says ROAD CLOSED. The parking lot is fine, it’s closed because they say the area is too icy and dangerous
08:21:01 <Kitt> yes it is indy
08:21:27 <ynpvisitor55> Yet people walked in with no consequences
08:21:32 <Kitt> I believe Kevin is away
08:21:51 <ynpvisitor55> Not sure TomK is about
08:22:10 <ynpvisitor55> He is usual cam op on Saturday morning
08:22:21 <ynpvisitor34> Well If I saw a sign that said road clesed, I may walk on the path also.
08:22:44 <ynpvisitor55> Because why 34?
08:22:50 <ynpvisitor34> Now if it said "closed to entry, that would be different.
08:23:23 <ynpvisitor34> Road closed, not driving, different.
08:23:45 <ynpvisitor34> They have plenty of signs. If they did not want 'people' thay have signs for that.
08:23:55 <ynpvisitor55> It does say closed. No entry. People are parking on road and hiking in
08:23:58 <Kitt> I don't know if they have a sign up on the path from the Ranger station/camp ground area
08:25:03 <ynpvisitor34> Well when we are talking about citing people, we need to be spacific about things.
08:25:16 <ynpvisitor34> Looks warm
08:25:45 <ynpvisitor34> THis is the kind of indy you can skate from Grand to see BH.
08:26:34 <ynpvisitor34> weeee
08:26:48 <ynpvisitor55> There were so many people off bw and out of bounds yesterday, it’s going to be a long season for LEs
08:26:53 <Kitt> yay Beehive
08:27:44 <ynpvisitor117> thanks ynpvisitor8 for the video.
08:27:45 <Kitt> ah a Beehive shower
08:28:04 <ynpvisitor34> Or it could be a good year for genetic cleansing.
08:28:20 <ynpvisitor55> I must be on long delay
08:28:26 <ynpvisitor34> How many dummies does it take to change the pH of a hot spring?
08:28:37 <Kent> :)
08:28:45 <ynpvisitor34> Verry verry tall
08:30:53 <ynpvisitor34> Some goo dlate bursts
08:31:43 <ynpvisitor117> Maybe they think a beehive shower is therapeutic! Yikes!
08:31:46 <Kitt> that was nice
08:32:00 <Kent> Nice eruption. Everything but a rainbow
08:32:02 <Kitt> glad cam op was able to give us a closeup
08:32:10 <ynpvisitor34> Well, tell Kevin he missed the first bear sent into orbit by a geyser.
08:32:36 <ynpvisitor34> Must be OF window.
08:32:44 <ynpvisitor34> Now I have the rest of the day free
08:35:40 <Kitt> what are you talking about #34?
08:35:54 <Kitt> Kevin saw bear on streaming cam earlier
08:35:57 <Pams54> How do you get the camera guy to clean the glass too much OF yesterday
08:36:18 <Kitt> the camera guy doesn't clean the glass
08:36:37 <Kitt> someone at Old Faithful occasionally cleans the dome
08:36:56 <Pams54> Thanks
08:37:58 <ynpvisitor...> Ranger comes out with a pole when they have time. I assume right now they are very short staffed
08:39:55 <Kitt> the dome has been much worse than today
08:40:50 <Kitt> I figured out it was RMichaels at Beehive
08:41:02 <Kitt> Old Faithful
08:41:14 <Kitt> 1040wc
08:41:51 <Ryan> Great wind direction
08:41:58 <Ryan> Very pretty
08:43:56 <Kitt> have a good day
10:07:19 <ynpvisitor25> Daisy
11:31:50 <ynpvisitor...> I wonder if there is a liability difference between “We don’t shovel the boardwalks” and “ You did a crummy job and I fell?”
11:32:02 <ynpvisitor...> I'm always wondering :)
11:45:12 <ynpvisitor...> I had 1342 wc. Next interval will be interesting. OF
11:50:53 <ynpvisitor...> VC called it a short
11:51:34 <Kevin L™> Maybe if they don't shovel snow the people have something soft to fall into.
11:52:18 <ynpvisitor...> :) - This time of year I wonder
11:53:23 <Kevin L™> 54° and sun should not take long to clear them.
12:00:18 <Betty> good afternoon
12:02:42 <ynpvisitor...> Hey Betty
12:02:53 <Kevin L™> Hi Betty
12:03:21 <Betty> Hi Kent and Kevin
12:07:04 <Betty> so we have our first bear on cam? Cool. Bummer I had to leave too early
12:07:58 <ynpvisitor...> Love bears, even fuzzy wuzzy ones.
12:11:12 <Betty> .
12:11:12 <Betty> .
12:11:13 <Betty> .
12:11:13 <Betty> .
12:11:13 <ynpvisitor8> aurum
12:11:13 <Betty> .
12:11:17 <Betty> Aurum
12:12:25 <Kevin L™> Good view of it too considering no zoom
12:12:44 <Betty> and on static
12:13:00 <ynpvisitor...> Sometimes my delay is a very good thing
12:45:33 <ynpvisitor106> Graham is not to be here this afternoon, if there is nat a cam operator I will take it,
12:46:38 <Kevin L™> I am in and out so I am not running it. Go Ahead
12:47:58 <Joe> thanks Kevin I just got back earlier than expected so I'll try to fill Grahams slot.
12:53:22 <Joe> did yoy see the bear this morning?
12:55:27 <ynpvisitor56> Was surprised to hear of the European Bison on a show last night. I thought ours was the only one.
12:55:53 <Betty> no, we have them here too
12:56:23 <ynpvisitor56> Those funny horns on the viking helmets should have been a clue.
12:56:57 <Betty> there is a group of about 10 within 10 miles of my place
12:57:21 <Betty> they are called Wisent here
12:57:33 <ynpvisitor56> Are they just as friendly?
12:57:56 <Betty> they are in a fenced area
12:58:36 <Betty> I´d never approach them
12:58:50 <Betty> they are not tame
12:58:56 <ynpvisitor56> Well enjoy Grand.
12:59:06 <ynpvisitor56> You should try and ride one!
12:59:20 <Betty> haha, noooo :-)
12:59:37 <ynpvisitor56> Don't walk on the snow bank if you do not want us to see you fall.
13:00:03 <ynpvisitor...> Your brown bears are much friendlier than ours. I petted them often in Greece but wouldn't dare do that to one of ours.
13:00:53 <Betty> I would do that nowhere!
13:01:40 <ynpvisitor...> Probably the best policy
13:02:14 <Betty> ~~~
13:10:24 <Kevin L™> I just saw the bear replay today Joe. That was a bit early for me!
13:11:07 <Joe> nice catch by CC
13:11:51 <Kevin L™> Think that is the first bear in over a year on the cam.
13:13:51 <Joe> wsa watching Daisy and wondered why CC was suddenly moving the cam great surprise
13:13:51 <Kevin L™> I think Graham has the only moose.
13:19:59 <Kevin L™> Bears usually surprise you. The zoom on the old cam was very clunky. You get a good view of pine needles before I found the bear again.
13:20:00 <Betty> Grand
13:21:11 <Micah> I was wondering if it was gonna go this cycle.
13:21:17 <Micah> I'm super stoked for Mugwump!
13:21:20 <Micah> That geyser is awesome.
13:21:40 <Kevin L™> Looks like a lot of fun stuff this year so far.
13:22:27 <Micah> Yep.
13:22:39 <Micah> The 36 day steamboat interval was quite a shock too.
13:24:02 <Ryan> ..
13:24:36 <Kevin L™> As was the Giant interval
13:25:16 <Kevin L™> Any word on the job yet Micah?
13:26:09 <Micah> Unfortunately no.
13:26:11 <Micah> Still waiting.
13:26:19 <Micah> Starting to look at other avenues.
13:26:25 <Micah> Maybe a guide service or museum.
13:26:35 <Joe> nice to have reports from the park
13:26:39 <Kevin L™> Good luck with it.
13:26:43 <Micah> Planning to sit down with the folks tonight to talk about a Yelly trip.
13:26:53 <Ryan> ^^^ ????
13:28:16 <Micah> Not in June.
13:29:03 <Ryan> :C
13:30:54 <Kevin L™> Don't know when or if I will have another after this year. It is my 40th year gazing. Getting tough to get to the geysers anymore.
13:31:35 <Micah> :(
13:38:37 <Emily> hello
13:40:41 <Betty> hi Emily
13:44:17 <Emily> Looking like Ill be around during labor day this year
13:47:10 <Betty> Castle
14:26:48 <Joe> OF
14:58:15 <ynpvisitor> Kevin. They have to race on Saturday to get away from the snow and rain?
15:13:17 <Joe> Daisy
15:36:50 <Joe> Lion ini
15:38:12 <Ryan> That is awesome
15:38:58 <Joe> I can almost hear it :)
15:39:34 <Kevin L™> They always used to do a Saturday night race at Richmond. People told them they wanted it back so we have it again!. I like it.
18:42:52 <Kevin L™> Bee burp
18:43:05 <Kevin L™> No buzzing though.
19:07:16 <ynpvisitor76> What, race over? It is not even dark.
19:07:56 <Kevin L™> It was in Virginia
19:08:33 <ynpvisitor76> No snow?
19:09:20 <Kevin L™> Nope
19:09:34 <ynpvisitor76> That is not racing1
19:09:49 <Kevin L™> Seems strange
19:10:05 <ynpvisitor76> Castle
19:10:19 <ynpvisitor76> Growing...
19:10:55 <ynpvisitor76> I gues not espcecialy at 5 hours.
19:10:59 <ynpvisitor8> No on Castle
19:11:28 <ynpvisitor8> Yes on Old Faithful
19:11:28 <ynpvisitor76> That other thing is messing up the view.
19:17:06 <ynpvisitor76> grand
19:19:38 <ynpvisitor76> No light?
19:21:09 <Kevin L™> May not be anyone out there tonight. I wouldn't be after that grizzly this morning.
19:22:01 <ynpvisitor76> But we know you are chicken. Bears like chicken
19:22:38 <Kevin L™> There is your light
19:22:49 <ynpvisitor76> 2nd?
19:22:51 <Kevin L™> I run too slow
19:23:03 <ynpvisitor76> Good fo rthe rest of us
19:23:53 <ynpvisitor76> too early i guess
19:24:35 <ynpvisitor76> There are people out the, I saw a cell phone just befor of
19:25:04 <ynpvisitor76> It looked like this sideof the river though
19:25:18 <Kevin L™> That looks like a 2nd
19:25:41 <ynpvisitor76> Maybe it was a short and this is the 3rd
19:26:16 <Kevin L™> That would be nice
19:26:43 <ynpvisitor76> growing
19:27:05 <ynpvisitor76> hard for me to tell
19:27:32 <ynpvisitor76> Well, enjoy the rest of the night
19:27:45 <Kevin L™> Night
21:43:48 <ynpvisitor2> Goos move. A bunch of yahoos
21:44:10 <ynpvisitor8> Accfident on the baordwalk
21:44:34 <ynpvisitor8> hey appear to be evacuating to a helicopter which just arrived
21:45:22 <ynpvisitor2> They did bring their lights with them
21:45:59 <ynpvisitor8> ambulance had lots of lights on it
21:46:52 <ynpvisitor2> Once the cam is properly positioned we won't have that problem :)
21:47:20 <ynpvisitor8> ?
21:48:02 <ynpvisitor2> I was just being a smart a-- , my apologies. Dead horse
