Swimming and Camping at Yellowstone National Park

Bear Precautions for Your Safety Swimming at Yellowstone National Park Don’t bring your swimwear if you’re planning to go for a splash in the river at Yellowstone National Park in July; unless you’re going for a dip in a hot spring. Yes, although July is in the prime of summer, some of the rivers and streams were still very cold. The clear streams seemed very inviting, as I was eager to get my feet wet; but much to my disappointment, the rivers and streams we found were freezing.

Fishing in the Western Finger Lakes

Great Fishing in Conesus, Hemlock, Canadice, Honeoye and Canandaigua Lakes The Western half of New York’s Finger Lakes – Conesus, Hemlock, Canadice, Honeoye and Canandaigua lakes – actually include the smallest lakes of the chain. But it would be a mistake to expect smaller lakes to produce smaller fish. My own personal record largemouth, an 8-pound, 23-inch brute, fell for a Yum Dinger at the north end of Conesus Lake. These lakes contain ample big bass, pike and trout, making them more than able to compete with their larger eastern neighbors. Conesus Lake The westernmost Finger Lake, Conesus covers just…

Jericho Beach Park – Things to do Jericho Beach Park is located in a quieter area of Vancouver, nearing the University of British Columbia. You get to that area of town by taking West 4th Avenue west toward the UBC Campus and then stopping near or at Alma Streat.
