5.0 von 5 Sternen Wie immer sehr gut 26. Oktober 2013
Von Amazone
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
...allerdings gibt es die beschriebenen Nebensaison-Presise nicht, was mich etwas gewurmt hat, da zu meiner Reisezeit (Ende September/Anfang Oktober) schon Vieles im Park geschlossen hatte. Die Preise sind insgesamt inzwischen gestiegen.

Ansonsten tolle Tipps, zB bzgl. Duschmöglichkeiten abseits der sehr spärlich ausgestatteten Campgrounds und auch sonst. Beispiel: Bzgl. der Grand Prismatic Spring gibt es den Hinweis für das beste Foto (Hügel hinter der Formation erklimmen), was absolut hilfreich war and de Tag, als ich dort war, denn der Wind blies die Schwaden des Pools in Richtung der Besucher, die über den normalen Weg dorthin gingen. Man sah nichts! Durch den LP Tipp habe ich unglaubliche Fotos machen können.

Bzgl. Abwehr von Schwarzbären wäre der Hinweis nützlich, dass man sich auf keinen Fall totstellen sollte, da diese Bärenart einen dann erst recht auffrisst, weil nur der Schwarzbär nachgewiesenermaßen Menschen hin und wieder auch als Beute nachstellet - im Gegensatz zum Grizzly, obwohl im auf S. 273 ein potentieller "predatory intent" unterstellt wird. (s. Buch "Bear Attacks", Erin McCloskey)

When going for a hike this book is ok. It looks about the same information NPS is giving on the parks website.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Most useful single book on these parks 26. Oktober 2004
Von Arthur Digbee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
If I had to pick a single book for planning a trip to Yellowstone and the Tetons, I'd recommend this one. It has enough information to get you started about any activity you like: backpacking, biking, boating, camping, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, mountaineering and rock climbing, and winter sports. You'll want another book for the more involved of these activities--especially backpacking, mountaineering and rock climbing--but you probably already knew that.

If you're on a family vacation, the book is near indispensable. There is good coverage of a nice range of day hikes. It's also exhaustive in telling you the other opportunities available that you might not have thought of by yourself. Rafting down the Snake or biking on the valley floor of Jackson Hole are two good family activities.

There's also plenty of information here about regulations, places to stay and eat, and suggestions for other excursions in the area. The written material (but not the maps, alas) is organized very effectively into regions that really do follow the natural organization of these parks. Once you sketch out an itinerary, the information you want is grouped together and the information you don't need is elsewhere.

Despite these strengths, I find the organization of the book a little odd and I found that it took a while to get used to using it effectively. For example, the last three chapters are on Greater Yellowstone History, Geology, and Ecosystem. You might think that this information belongs earlier in the book as part of your orientation to the area. The book has a nice collection of maps, but they are in a weird location in the middle of the book that forces you to flip back and forth to use them as trip planners for hotels, activities, and hiking trails. These might go more naturally at the very front or back of the book. There are some nice full-color pictures scattered throughout the book (mostly in the front), but none of them go with the text that surrounds them.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A COLLECTION OF USEFUL TIPS 16. Juli 2004
Von NotATameLion - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
A big thank you to Mr. Mayhew and his compadres for putting this very useful book together. I got several books to help prepare for my family's Yellowstone and Teton trip. This one, along with the Falcon Guides on hiking and the Trails Illustrated map proved the most helpful. That said, this Lonely Planet guide was probably the one book I relied on the most.
Some tips of my own:
Make the hike to Fairy Falls. Especially in the early morning fog, the other side of Midway Geyser Basin (the side NOT on a tourist-tastic boardwalk) is majestic and wonderful. Fairy Falls is the most beautiful of the many falls I saw in the park.
Get the beans at the Roosevelt Lodge. They are the ONLY beans I've ever had that I'd gladly part with $3 for. (Corresponding tip: the beans elsewhere are $3 also--but you can buy your own can of Busch's for half that).
Don't be frightened off by all the Bear talk. The only Bear I saw was halfway up a mountain and about the size of a quarter from where I stood. The Elk on the other hand...
Going to the Tetons will explain the line "Purple Mountains Majesty." Hiking in the Shadow of Moran or the Grand Teton = instant perspective on life.
Driving through the Big Horn Mountains on the way to Yellowstone is every bit as breathtaking as anything I saw in either park. Its "wow" factor led me to even buy a hat as a souvenir.
Wyoming has to have the highest concentration per square mile of what Patrick McManus calls "Old Men" in his classic A Fine and Pleasant Misery story The Theory and Application of Old Men. This was great for my son. I enjoyed it too.
Probably my biggest tip:
Go to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. (If you're coming the way I came, Badlands NP is well worth it too).
My second biggest tip:
Get this book for all the tips it contains. I recommend it wholeheartedly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderfully Comprehensive 16. Juni 2003
Von "tarabky3" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Our family just returned from Yellowstone and Grand Teton and this book was an integral part of our trip. You'll find the maps are very accurate and informative. Everything you need to know about Yellowstone is in this book- from Campgrounds to places to raft, eat, hike, wildlife view and lounge. DO NOT LEAVE HOME WITHOUT THIS BOOK!

5.0 von 5 Sternen You'll be lost without it! 15. Oktober 2006
Von D. Kelly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
If it's your first time in Yellow Stone or the Grand Tetons this'll be your bible .. the hikes listed in both places are well presented and with the maps included will help you plan you time in this wonderful part of the world .. The information on where you are likely to spot animals is really useful - Elk, Bison, Moose and Bear ... all accurate! The highlights and intineraries suggested helped with planning the trip .. but in addition to the traditional 'must sees' the book also suggests some wonderful off the beaten track experiences as well. Has info on where to stay and eat ..I stayed outside the park and would recommend either Teton Village or Jackson Hole as a good base with lots of top class accomodation. For European travellers Jackson Hole was the only place that I could get a mobile phone signal!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Essential for trip to Yellowstone & Grand Tetons 30. Juni 2012
Von Greg Nyquist - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Used this book for a late Spring trip to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons. The book proved enormously useful. It is packed with information about both parks and the surrounding vicinity. It gives you all the important points of interest, including information on hikes (length of hike, how to get to trailhead, etc). Plenty of maps in the book, but they are all duotone maps and some may have trouble reading them. Information on campgrounds in and surrounding the parks is, as far as I could tell, fairly complete (I've checked most via web sources). Information about lodging and places to eat is thorough, but not complete: I ended up staying at places in West Yellowstone and Jackson that were not listed in the book. I can't vouch for accuracy on prices on either lodging, food, campgrounds, or other services mentioned in the book, as such things are always in flux. The book merely tells you what is available and gives you a rough estimate on the price.

One thing that I really appreciated about the book is that it had plenty of new information of the sort that you could not find in older books. For example, the two death last summer (i.e., 2011) of two hikers at the hands of grizzlies is discussed, as is the indefinite closing of the trail to the base of Tower Falls. This is the book to buy if you are going this year (2012) to Yellowstone. Older books have out-of-date information which can cause problems. The mention of the closure of the Tower Falls trail was important to me, as it saved a pointless drive out to Tower Junction. When traveling to these parks, time is always limited and one needs to base one's plans on the best and most current information available.

I would have liked to see full color maps and more photos, but that would've increased the price of the book. Not to be missed for those planning a trip to Yellowstone and/or Grand Tetons in 2012.
