Backcountry guide dies after being mauled by grizzly bear outside Yellowstone National Park
WEST YELLOWSTONE, Mont. (NEXSTAR) — A backcountry guide died over the weekend just days after he was mauled by a large grizzly bear just outside of Yellowstone National Park in Montana.
The Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office said the man, identified as Carl Mock, died Saturday, two days after he was attacked by the bear in a forest several miles north of the park gateway town of West Yellowstone. The sheriff's office said Mock had gone fishing alone.
Mock, who was able to call 911 after the attack, was found after searchers looked for him for about 50 minutes, ABC News reported. He had suffered scalp and facial wounds. He was transported by toboggan and snowmobile to an ambulance and taken to a hospital, the sheriff’s office told ABC News.

The bear was shot and killed last Friday after charging a group of game wardens and others investigating the attack.
Officials say they are confident that the bear they killed is the one that attacked.
Officials said the male bear was probably defending a nearby moose carcass.
ABC News reported that Mock was a guide at Backcountry Adventures, which provides snowmobile rentals and tours, according to its Facebook page.
The Associated Press contributed to this report.

It’s National Park Week!
Gerald Ford had a long history with the National Parks. In 1936, at the age of 23, he worked as a seasonal park ranger at Yellowstone National Park and later recalled it as “one of the greatest summers of my life.” Ford and his fellow park rangers directed traffic, supervised the campgrounds, and monitored the feeding of bears at Canyon Station. 
President Ford worked closely with the National Park Service and Director Gary Everhardt to improve the national parklands. During his administration 18 new areas were added to the National Park System.
On August 29, 1976, President Ford visited Yellowstone National Park where he unveiled his Bicentennial Land Heritage Act. This act proposed to spend 1.5 billion during the next ten years to double the acreage of land for national parks to protect nature and wildlife. “I call upon all Americans – our Bicentennial generation which has enjoyed the blessings of liberty and the pursuit of happiness, ours for 200 years – to join in a great new undertaking to improve the quality of our lives and of our land,” he said in his remarks. “Now it is our turn to make our own gift outright to those who will come after us, 15 years, 40 years, 100 years from now.”
During this trip, Director Everhardt presented President Ford with a National Park Service ranger hat, made of premium beaver featuring a leather hatband and chinstrap.

I don’t know the photographer of this photo (anyone?), but apparently it is taken in Yellowstone. That is one huge wolf pack... 
I remember reading once that ccasionally wolf packs will unite during winter to hunt together. I think it is probably impossible that this is one traditional wolf pack (a couple and their offspring).

Blowing off Steam 3I7915
flickr
Blowing off Steam 3I7915 by Daniel D'Auria Via Flickr: I'm just passing some time and blowing off steam this morning before heading to a pottery wood firing for the afternoon and evening. It's an amazing process and I am even more astounded at the talent of so many who practice the art. Even though my creations are somewhat child-like compared to that of the other participants, I'm interested in seeing the results of the firing.

A Lamar River Sunrise
The Lamar River is a tributary of the Yellowstone River. It's about 40 miles long. The river is located entirely within Yellowstone National Park.
Before the 1884–85 Geological Survey of the park, the Lamar was known as the East Fork of the Yellowstone River. During that survey, Geologist Arnold Hague named the river for L.Q.C. (Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus) Lamar, who was then the Secretary of the Interior (March 1885 – January 1888).
The Lamar River is one of the most popular fishing spots in Yellowstone Park. The access is easy, and the cutthroat fishing is some of the best in the world. Some of the wildlife you might see while strolling by the river include pronghorn, bison, and bear within the area of the Lamar River Valley. It's most famous, though, for being one of the most reliable places in the world to see wolves. There are two famous wolf packs in the area; The Lamar Canyon and Junction Butte wolf packs
And if you are a hiking enthusiast like I am, this is a great hiking spot too. The Lamar River Trail is a seven-mile-long round-trip hiking trail. The trail's hiking difficulty is fairly easy, and the trip can be completed in one full day. If you prefer to camp overnight, there are two great campsites, 3L1 and 3L2, along the trail within the area near Cache Creek. If you are here in the Spring, though, 3L2 might be inaccessible due to the high river.
Maybe I'll see you out on the hiking trail! =]:)

Not a Leg to Stand On  3I5533
flickr
Not a Leg to Stand On 3I5533 by Daniel D'Auria Via Flickr: Two coyote share what remains of an elk leg they managed to scavenge from a wolf kill from earlier in the week. With little more than bone and sinew left, it was hard to imagine they had much to gain. But, the dead of winter doesn’t leave them much of a leg to stand on when it comes to finding sustenance. Add a heavy ice coat to the fallen snow it becomes even harder for them to harvest the creatures that live below. With certainty, few things go to waste in the natural world.

The Dance of the Shooter  9529
flickr
The Dance of the Shooter 9529 by Daniel D'Auria Via Flickr: Watching a ton of muscle and sinew saunter up to the edge of a 25-foot cliff can be hair raising. But trying to estimate the exposure compensation when shooting into the shadow side of a dark animal on a bright snowy background is nothing short of shuttering. I always choose to try to most properly expose my darks in the subject, in that way preserving the details in the shadows. You risk “blowing out” your highlights but this the dance of the wildlife shooter. Post processing has become intricate enough to allow a certain amount of rebalancing of shadow and light. I prefer not to have to “overwork” an image. Of course, the art of photography is creating the image that pleases you the most, and as long as you are not shooting journalistic photos, the canvas is yours to manipulate.

Overall: 8/10
Year released: 1993
My recommended audience: 6+
Platform: Hulu
Pros: it’s narrated by Patrick Stewart which is such a treat
Cons: it’s nearly 30 years old so it’s just a little dated
An IMAX documentary worth the casual watch. One of those good documentaries to put on to nap to. It’s just a calming walk through nature and humans use of it. Primarily, it focuses on plants. Featuring this beautiful scenes of flowers opening and growing that really bring a settled feeling to your mind.
I like that this through in a little “this is our planet it’s up to us to save it” at the end because I feel that’s the true point of nature documentaries is showing how beautiful the earth and its creatures are and inspiring us to change.
Warning: as my partner is one of these people I must warn you that if you see someone who gets disturbed by upclose video of bugs, there is lots of that in this film
