Living and Hiking In Yellowstone
This is my friend and hiking partner. We both work in the Food and Beverage Department, enjoy long walks. Yesterday we hiked 20 miles, up to Pelican Creek Cabin and beyond, after first visiting the Turbid Lake disaster. The last half mile was all blowdowns and fire damage, making it a very study in survival just getting over the damage without getting impaled. The lake was beautiful, so worth the trouble.
While hiking across the river on what turned out to be a bushwack, one night after work I saw this very vivid reminder of the large predators that roam here. I always take my bear spray and try to get home before dark.
