    Yellowstone, one night by a lake

    I recently did a hike with a group from Backcountry Post, and heard a couple of times that I should post more, that people like my little trip reports. (Thank you for your encouragement.) I live near Yellowstone and can drive in for a quick overnight, or a day trip. I don’t like day hikes a...

    Shoshone Geyser Basin, Yellowstone, 2022

    Day 1, 2 and 3. Years ago, I started hiking with a group out of Indiana, the Hoosier Bacckpackers. After moving to the Yellowstone area, I decided to offer to organize a hike in Yellowstone. That was the year of Covid. I tried again last year, but people still didn’t want to travel. So I...

    Scatman's Grizzly Lake hike, 2022

    A few months ago, Scatman organized a hike in Yellowstone, to Grizzly Lake. I put my name in the hat, and the next thing I knew, the hike was upon us. I had been to Grizzly Lake a couple of years ago, but at the other campsite (neither is especially close to Grizzly Lake, in case you were...

    Yellowstone--Heart Lake to South Entrance

    For the last few years, I’ve been trying to do the hike from Heart Lake Trailhead down to the South Entrance. I was going to do it with one person, and it got cancelled due to Covid. The next year, the person I was going to hike with couldn’t get the time off. I don’t remember what happened...

    Teton Wilderness Loop - August 6, 2022

    This report is a complement to @Bob's wonderful write-up Teton Wilderness - 50 Miles of High Country. Originally this was supposed to be a trip to the Beartooths, where we had hoped to complete a lollipop loop into the teeth of the Tooths so to speak. Unfortunately, mother nature had other...

    Yellowstone: Bechler Canyon, Aug 12-15 2022

    This last minute trip came together as my young brothers-in-law (Sean & Shane) wanted to go backpacking for the first time and they wanted to do it in Yellowstone. After zooming with them about how to prepare, it was clear they weren't and I would be heading out to west to lead them. Also with...

    Teton Wilderness - 50 miles of High Country - Aug 2022

    After the Yellowstone floods washed out our access to the Beartooth's, Scat had me send him some of the 50M routes I have in my archives...... we settled on a Teton Wilderness route I modified to fit 5 nights. Day started driving to the Trailhead in rain, should say buckets of rain..... but by...

    Snake River; Wolverine, Coulter, Pilgrim Creeks, July-Aug. 2022

    This was to be a “creeks and meadows” trip with swimming holes at each campsite. We came up two days short swimming hole-wise due to poor weather or a late arrival at camp. We had a good time, went through the middle of absolute nowhere, saw some cool wildlife and had one scary encounter. Never...

    Shoshone Lake Lollipop Loop - Yellowstone National Park - July 24, 2022

    I believe that I might be a bit of a complainer by nature, so this report will have some minor complaints throughout unfortunately. :) First off, this trip around Shoshone Lake was supposed to be a nice relaxing family backpacking trip. Originally, Katie, Sheila and I were going to be the...

    Younts Peak (Teton/Washakie Wilderness) - July 2022

    Ever since last year's trip through the Southern Absaroka, I've been itching to give Younts Peak another shot. Being the not very patient man I am, I made plans to head back out there on my first trip of the summer. I made a post in the Meet Up forum and was fortunate to have @travel2walk and...

    Wind River Range Sept 2021 (part 1)

    9/1 - 9/5/21 (4 nights) 2021 Bag Nights: 24 I drove up from Colorado to the Scab Creek Trailhead. The weather forecast said 50% chance of thunderstorms for the next couple of days. There were waves of rain on the highway, but everything looked good as I got closer to the trailhead. I got my...

    WRHR - Day 7: Beaver Park to Green River Lakes

    All good things come to an end. Today was our last day and it was set up to be less dramatic, mostly through a long green tunnel to our exit, or was it? Thursday - July 29, 2021 Day 7: Beaver...

    WRHR: Day 6 - Titcomb Basin to Beaver Park

    Our first rain after being out for 5 days, and then a whole bunch more would highlight Day 6 along the Wind River High Route. Wednesday - July 28, 2021 Day 6: Titcomb Basin to Beaver Park MILES...

    Bonneville Pass - August 2021

    Found these pics from a nice day hike we did this past summer up above Bonneville Pass just outside the Teton Wilderness boundary. It’s definitely beautiful country up there.

    Yellowstone - Through the Heart of the Park

    Day 1. I awoke in the cabin at the Headwaters Lodge, headed over for breakfast, and walked into a big group of people in the lobby. Overhearing the conversations, the road into the Park was closed at the S Entrance due to the snow from the previous day and last night. Some people that I had met...

    WRHR: Day 4 - Halls Lake to Camp Lake

    A whole lot of cross-country route-finding, a walk across Europe, followed by two more passes would take us through Day 4 along this Wind River high route. Monday - July 26, 2021 MILES: 13 | GAIN: 2,717 ft Another blissful, cozy, and comfy sleep. Another morning waking...

    Week-long Ramble Through Southern Yellowstone

    This trip has been on the back burner for a few years and I made a few adjustments before submitting my permit application in July. As I submitted the application relatively late, the Backcountry office called and let me know that a few campsites I requested were not available. She suggested...

    WRHR: Day 3 - 'Desolation Valley' to Halls Lake

    Two passes with a whole lot of off-trail and cross-country navigation, lots of talus hopping, and some bushwhacking would set the stage for Day Three. After some convincing at the urgent request of @Bob, I now present to all of you fellow BCP friends: DAY THREE. ;) Sunday - July 25, 2021...
