Sky Rim Trail via Specimen Creek

Specimen Creek, one of the larger creeks in the northwestern corner of Yellowstone National Park, is a great way to access the incredible Sky Rim Trail. Pair it with the Black Butte Trail and you have an epic day hike with petrified trees, meadows, forest, a sketchy traverse, views, and a great chan

Sky Rim Trail via Dailey Creek

The Sky Rim Trail borders Yellowstone National Park and the Gallatin National Forest to the north. This trail faithfully follows the sawtooth ridge giving you both incredible views and ample elevation gain culminating to a summit of the rounded, grassy dome of Big Horn Peak. Accessing it via the won

The Hoodoos

The Hoodoos in Yellowstone National Park are a large boulder field as a result of an earthquake that rocked Terrace Mountain. While you can drive through the lower section, you can also walk through them which gives you a bonus of some great views and a more intimate look at these great stones. Thi

River Otter during the Kalispell Christmas Bird Count

While driving and walking for the Kalispell Christmas Bird Count this year, we spotted a River Otter sitting on some ice. I watched it go under the water and walked over to get a closer look. It popped up on the water with lunch and I was able to video it chomping away on a delicious Crayfish. I lov

Electric Peak and Cache Lake

The climb up to the summit of Electric Peak culminates to breathtaking, unparalleled, panoramic views of the Mammoth area of Yellowstone National Park. The spur trail to Cache Lake is a nice destination and far less arduous. Both are longer days, and paired together, gives you an epic adventure. Ele

Artists Paintpots

Be prepared for stark white mud pots and strikingly colored pools at Artists Paintpots near Norris in Yellowstone National Park. This short trail leads to a loop that goes up and hillside and back down, circling a wonderful collection of hydrothermal features. I'd been exploring all over Yellowstone

Norris Geyser Basin

Norris Geyser Basin is one of the more active hydrothermal areas in Yellowstone National Park. It features two basins full of pools, geysers, steaming vents, springs, mud pots and creeks that flow over brightly colored extremophiles. From the white porcelain basin to the more spread out back basin

Monument Geyser Basin

Monument Geyser Basin in Yellowstone National Park is a smaller, less visited geyser basin tucked away above Gibbon Meadows. It's a fairly short hike with a steep section mostly limited views. While the hydrothermal features there are interesting, there isn't the scope and variety of other basins i

Blacktail Deer Creek Trail

Blacktail Deer Creek runs through the northern range of Yellowstone National Park. This area features sprawling meadows full of grass, sagebrush, and ponds. It's perfect habitat for a wide variety of the park's wildlife. The Blacktail Creek Trail follows the creek across meadows, then down as it cu

North Rim Trail

While you can drive to many of the overlooks along the North Rim Trail in Yellowstone National Park, walking the entire length gives you access to exclusive views, a bonus waterfall, and some solitude. Highlights include the powerful Upper Falls which is then dwarfed by Lower Falls which then crashe

Tower Falls

The paved trail to the overlook of Tower Falls in Yellowstone National park is a nice walk for everyone featuring the tall waterfall, great rock formations and the Yellowstone River. Beyond the overlook, the unpaved section of trail meanders down close to the river. Here, the official, maintained tr

Mt. Washburn via Chittenden Road

A trail follows the old Chittenden Road to Mt. Washburn in Yellowstone National Park. While this approach isn't as popular as the route from Dunraven Pass, it is shorter and has plenty of views. It was a cooler day with more wind on my second time up to Mt. Washburn. I drove north past Dunraven Pass
