06:59:51 <linda> morning
06:59:54 <Kat> Wonky cam
07:00:03 <Kat> Morning Linda
07:02:49 <linda> So I just went for a walk up some hills and around and didn't find myself gasping for air, so I have to attribute my problems in YNP to altitude and smoke. I thought maybe I was about to expire out there. haha!
07:04:11 <Kat> Sire glad you didn't! :)
07:04:28 <Kat> Sure*
07:04:39 <linda> Kat, There were moments when I thought I might.
07:05:37 <Kat> It's very different for us who live below sea level! haha
07:05:59 <linda> for sure and the smoke was not helping
07:06:57 <linda> weeeeeeeee
07:07:09 <Kat> No doubt - the cam is doing what it wants!
07:08:16 <linda> :) I guess its better than being down for 2 months
07:08:27 <Kat> wow it's 50 degrees!
07:08:53 <linda> It's too warm here, it's september
07:09:34 <Kat> linda, true - I hope the cam stays up this winter -we'll see
07:10:34 <linda> yeah hopefully the snow won't take it down, but I think that was the old one
07:14:51 <Kat> Is your next wednesday shift 7-9 or 7 - 10
07:38:40 <linda> oh yes I guess it's 7-10 or 9-12 eastern time
07:39:07 <linda> off to the dentist
07:39:16 <Kat> :thumbsup:
07:40:36 <Kat> Last OF was short
08:29:39 <Katie> Good morning

10:58:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Had a Grand covered by OF.
10:59:51 <Betty> business as usual :-p
11:01:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yep
11:12:05 <Betty> static is stuck
11:13:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It likes to do that.
11:14:14 <Betty> north entrance are both offline
11:17:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They may be moving them to the new entrance.
11:22:08 <Betty> oh, there was a lion
11:22:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That snuck in on me.
11:28:08 <Betty> daisy

12:07:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Tall one
12:22:30 <Betty> BAH
12:42:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The cam had a bad time to need a reboot Betty.
12:43:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Static is working again now too.
12:48:51 <Betty> I missed it anyway
12:49:30 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It tried to hide with broken cam and OF
12:58:32 <Betty> I´m glad BH is back to the light
13:00:29 <Betty> Artemisia I guess
13:00:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Think so
13:00:59 <Betty> Jarno has it already
13:05:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> When were you attempting to come to Yellowstone next year Betty.
13:07:35 <Betty> not really sure yet, sometime around August/September for weeks for our whole trip, but maybe just a shorter one for Yellowstone
13:07:49 <Betty> 3 weeks
13:08:24 <Betty> depends on if our nephew is with us
13:08:58 <Betty> he has never been to US, so we have to do the tourist programm ;-)
13:11:26 <Betty> and I have 2 new coworkers, and one is going to get married around our usual annual leave time
13:11:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Just wondering. I do have some reservations at the end of August. Think they start August 25.
13:31:07 <Betty> I did a rough estimate of the possible trip, and we may be to the park the 27th till 30th of August or the 29th(Aug) till 1st of September
13:34:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We may meet then but with this covid crap, who knows?
13:35:14 <Betty> yeah, depends on if your guys let me in next year :-)
14:13:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This is really getting to be a pain. You just can't schedule anything and I HATE these stupid masks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
14:29:33 <Betty> bbs

15:34:48 <Betty> daisy ie
15:44:30 <Betty> nice, Graham saw a Penta wruption
15:45:18 <Betty> I wonder if a wruption is different to an eruption :-)
15:53:09 <linda> It's way more than an eruption :)

18:17:41 <linda> :( I got confused, saw grand then OF. They do like to go at the same time
18:17:59 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, any birds?
18:18:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Only some scrawny beat up chickens.
18:18:55 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, Remember the Severn Valley Rail they are having their Autumn Steamtrain Gala this weekend. I guess they will be showing them on cams
18:22:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Sounds fun. Strasburg is doing Thomas again this weekend.
18:27:14 <linda> Are those scrawny chickens laying eggs?
18:27:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Under 110 today Linda!
18:27:42 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, definitely a cooling trend. I don't know how you do it
18:27:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They lay a few.
18:28:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It was only 106!
18:28:24 <linda> yikes
18:28:42 <linda> only!
18:29:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This weekend the high is supposed to be low 90s and we are finally getting under 70 for lows!
18:30:14 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, I looked at the loop the other day and it was clear
18:30:27 <linda> that's good, so it really is starting to cool off
18:30:50 <linda> Its mid 80s here and too warm for september
18:31:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> If you check Chama on the 22nd, I should be on that train in the gondola waving at the Grandkids.
18:31:16 <linda> I actually enjoyed the cold weather in YNP
18:31:43 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, That will be fun, I'll try to remember
18:32:28 <linda> wow OF still hasn't gone

18:39:37 <linda> excellent pan :)
18:59:06 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, Does zion get real cold in winter?
18:59:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It can.
19:00:05 <linda> hmmmm
19:02:33 <linda> Every hotel in Grand Canyon is booked solid for November, I guess that a good time to go
19:03:14 <linda> *that is a
19:04:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That should be colder than Zion. Have you looked at the North Rim?
19:04:46 <linda> It closes for winter
19:05:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> How about Williams?
19:05:27 <linda> I didn't look at that
19:05:38 <linda> Take the train in :)
19:06:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You could do that and then they have shuttles.
19:06:48 <linda> I think I'd rather be cold in Zion than hot

19:10:55 <KorbenC> HLS Delay, 1ft center pool
19:14:35 <linda> KorbenC, oh that reminds me, driving thru YNP I came to the conclusion that over half the bison population had white butts!
19:14:52 <linda> he looks frisky
19:15:09 <KorbenC> linda, that one had a mark on him
19:15:35 <linda> KorbenC, :)

19:17:06 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, thanks for the link
19:53:09 <linda> Found a week in beginning of December for Zion
19:57:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That should work. A bit chilly but not too bad. Inside the park?
19:57:41 <linda> yeah at hotel
19:59:14 <linda> i reserved it, have to think about it. but if you don't have a reservation you wont get in :)
19:59:59 <linda> nice thing is shuttle isn't running so we can drive
20:09:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Be sure to do the Canyon overlook trail.
20:26:19 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, ok I'll look at it
20:27:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Just past the tunnel
20:27:49 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, ok. what is the altitude in zion?
20:28:49 <linda> never mind I found it
20:29:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Springdale is about 3900'. I would say top of tunnel would be low 4000'
20:29:29 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, thanks
