    Don't miss the "ghost town" at Garnet. It is quite a drive, or at least was in days past. They may have paved the road by now, but garnet is something to see, indeed. The old hotel and store are a wonder indeed. I've been twice and the store was better the second time. the old cabins are worth seeing, too. The whole thing is worth the trip. And of course, you need to spend some good time in Glacier Park. Watch out for the bears. They are not to be played with at all. They are grizzlies and do drive the bus. Don't even consider getting your picture taken with one. You might wind up making a nice meal for one. Not to be fooled with. Mind what the Rangers say and tell you about them. The scenery there is not to be beaten anywhere else and is perfect for your 4x5 and any film you choose to take. I take TriX when I go. PlusX if you can get it. Efke 100, FP4 or whatever you especially like. Just enjoy some of America's best scenery!

    While Yellowstone is nice, Glacier National Park is far better for photo ops. The St. Mary's Falls trail (about 2 miles) is unbelievable.

    Thanks Logan,

    For the 4X5 I'm thinking about using some ERA 100 B&W, Ektar 100,
    and some "AnyChrome?" 100.
    I got a pack of ERA 100 last year, $12.00 for 25 sheets. I'll probably
    start shooting a few sheets this weekend so that I can get familiar with it.
    I just need to get the developing times for ERA 100 4X5 using D-76.
    It's not listed on the Massive Chart for using D-76.


    P.S. : JNanian; what are the B's ???

    If the ERA 100 4X5 works well, I might want shoot 100 sheets.

    Where can I find developing info. using D-76 ?
    which is all I have at the moment, and actually
    the only developer that I have ever used.

    Steve is kidding you, the jackalopes are a myth. You should, however, bring a smaller format camera also. It's tough to get a picture of Sasquatch with a 4x5.

    Devil's Tower (Wyoming) is also well worth a visit.

    Hey, what do you mean a myth? I remember seeing one with my own eyes every day for years! My dad had a mounted jackalope head on the wall of his restaurant for years- right above the juke box. He used to throw people off sometimes by calling it an antelabbit.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I am only a hundred miles from Montana, but alas, the quiet, flat part...

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    As is often the case (e.g., vampires, werewolves, mermaids), jackalopes are mythical creatures with a a biological basis. Rabbits infected with a particular papillomavirus can get benign growths on the head that resemble (to the creative eye) antlers, thus the name jackalopes (jackrabbit, antelope). Of course, humans have exacerbated it with most colorful creations!

    Jackalopes aint nothin. Their everwhere out here in the western states. Sometimes they even run in packs. Shot me a 4 point buck once. He was so big that feller fed a famly of 4 fer hell, damn near a day! If you want to talk bout somethin serious like them vampires and werewolves, you want to talk about those chupacabras. Now them thangs are ugly and their real bloodsuckers. If one of them latches onto ya yer gonna end up lookin like a rag doll with the stuffin pulled out.
