Thanks @Miya. I've always considered it a plus when no one on one of my trips gets eaten or trampled.Amazing!!
What a beautiful trip and so exciting to see so much wildlife! Glad no one was eaten or trampled.

I did have ornery bull moose years ago come through our campsite while canoeing on Yellowstone Lake trying to trample everything and everybody but that is another story.
Working my way into Jellystone somehow this year I hope. Tough figuring where with a million plus acres. I'm leaning towards Two Ocean Plateau from Heart Lake, Thoroughfare, CDT, South Boundary. That area is very far from anything. My significant other knows somethings up cause she finds my head buried in Back Country Post, Caltopo, or watching Joey videos.
Just watched Joey's video of this trip as well. Looked like a challenging, yet unforgettable trip!
Watched Joey's video on this trip recently and wanted to get a better idea of this area in Yellowstone. Used caltopo and his video description to get an overview of the route. Somehow in my Google search stumbled across backcountrypost.com and saw this great narrative of the same trip. Thank you so much for sharing.
At a stage in my life where I can begin to plan some more extended backpacking trips in the west. Not ready for a route like this but inspired by the adventure. Maybe someday. Great stuff!!
What an amazing read @scatman. As always your report takes the reader along on the trip and I always learn plenty by reading them. The bear footage was awesome and it’s always good to see @Joey in his element.
Thank you for the welcome @scatman . Yellowstone is very much on my bucket list. Working on some tentative plans for two weeks in the Tetons's and Yellowstone next year. Thinking that something in the Shoshone Lake area would be a good place to start for someone new to backpacking in that area. Not sure about the Tetons's yet but looking forward to new challenges. Love the backpacking here in the east but the views and wildlife out west are calling.Welcome to BCP @David Rule. I'm glad you enjoyed the trip report. Hopefully, Yellowstone is on your bucket list of places to explore in the future. If you have any further questions about the route, just let me know and I'll be glad to answer them.

I'm trying to look up the permits for this hike, since I have such an early slot in the lottery today. But the campsites for 3O1 & 5P7 are non-existent. I assume because they are in the special management area, but does this mean I would have to call the backcountry office? Do they possibly not allow the general public to reserve these sites anymore? I searched mid-July, which is a time frame when the NPS says it is open.
