Nope!  I did get a chance to speak to a lot of curious rangers, 
though, as I was running around the park with my gear and 
homemade windscreen, that turned out looking like Cousin It 
from the Addams family.

We had lots of fun conversations with the rangers, as they were 
fascinated with our activities.  They were very nice to this amateur 
naturerecordist learning to capture the wild on minidisc.  Had 
nice opportunities to educate them about natural quiet, the NSS 
workshop(birdy bootcamp, as I like to call it), loss of biophanies 
and songbirds.  I learned some fascinating things, like part of 
the Norris Basin trail has heated up to 200 degrees, frying some 
of the wooden walkways, and stayed that way.  This has never 
been observed in this area before.  Volcanic and geothermal 
scientists, top in the field, from all over the world, have been 
studying this all summer. 

I had lots of fun adventures.  The MP3 that is up on the list was 
convenient, for elk, because the bull bugles 3 times in 30 
seconds.  I have some others that are closer, and some that are 
farther away.  The ones that are farther, and include multiple 
bulls, sound like whale song, as they echo off the hills. 

I also recorded some coyotes, from a distance.  No wolves, 
though I did get to see one.

Thanks for listening!
