Whiskey (Day 39)

Lookin’ for that bottle, old number seven.

Horseshoes and Hand Grenades

We’d been planning on doing a huge 20 mile hike today to the Shoshone geothermal area, the biggest backcountry collection of gysers in Yellowstone. However, we forgot bug spray, and after fighting off hordes of mosquitoes for the first two and a half miles we decided to turn around.

Instead we drove the Northern loop of the figure eight that makes up the park. We did a couple little hikes and saw a few geothermal features. The coolest thing we saw was a bison walking down the road in the oncoming lane on our way back.

We did have a nice dinner in the lounge at the inn tonight. Tomorrow we’ve decided to hike Mt. Washburn.
