Divide Trail

Divide Trail

The Divide Trail in Yellowstone National Park is a steady climb through an older forest along the Continental Divide to an old lookout site. Aside from a brief glimpse at the beautiful Shoshone Lake, it lacks any views you might hope for, including at the site of the old lookout. In between Old Faithful and […]

Lone Star Geyser

Lone Star Geyser

Lone Star Geyser in Yellowstone National Park is a great, cone geyser set away from the large collection at Old Faithful. The path to it is along an old road that is bike-friendly and follows a beautiful, lazy section of the Firehole River. Just east of the Kepler Cascades pullout is the parking lot for […]

Sentinel Meadows & Queens Laundry

The hike to Sentinel Meadows and Queens Laundry gives you a level trail with wide open meadows, hot springs, ponds, birds, and a little bit of Yellowstone National Park history. The trail can be done by hiking directly to Queens Laundry and back or made into a little loop that’s a bit longer through another meadow. […]

Gunsight Pass 2016

The long and wonderful hike over Gunsight Pass in Glacier National Park is traditionally done as a two day backpacking trip (or a nice stay at the alpine Sperry Chalet), but we decided to tackle it as an incredible day hike. It was a perfect day full of blue skies, stunning lakes, waterfalls, wildflowers, and […]

Hiking Siyeh Pass in Glacier National Park in July and August inevitably leads to incredible amounts of wonderful flowers and this trip, under a cloudless blue sky, did not disappoint. I was hiking with some friends Mary and Baker who had won a hike with me during the annual Backpacker’s Ball that the Glacier Conservancy puts […]
