Today we are doing one of my favorite hikes: Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. I love this five mile hike, as there is something new around every bend. Waterfalls, sweeping vistas of the canyon, Artist Point, meadows, mud pots, wild flowers and usually bison. In the afternoon we’ll head down to Lake Yellowstone, but not for a swim, as this is one of the deepest and therefore coldest alpine lakes! Perhaps we’ll go for a soak in some hot springs near our campground tonight, under a starry sky!
