Re: Y-Stone gear question.

Are you there for a week, or longer? Do you have any plans to visit Teton NP? The upper end of the Tetons is about 2 1/2 hour (very scenic) drive and is really worth the trip if you have the time. Oxbow bend, Snake River Overlook, Schwabacher's Landing, and Mormon Row are all within easy reach.

Both Yellowstone and the Tetons will have an abundance of wildlife as animals prepare for winter. Elk will be entering the rut, so you will no doubt witness the spectacle of them bugling and chasing cows. Moose, bear, antelope, coyotes and wolves are all possible as well. I definitely recommend an early rise. You can shoot landscapes in the first minutes of light and then switch to wildlife. Your 70-300mm should be fine for most wildlife and some landscape. A wide angle in the 18-70 range would be a nice complement. Have a great trip! (wish I was going)
