Yellowstone has its own charm and adventure. A perfect spot to experience wilderness in its truest form. Loneliness; doubt; darkness; Spontaneity of thought and idea; the vestibule in which a material sense of things disappears, and spiritual sense unfolds the great facts of existence.
When we first arrived in Missoula, driving through it from the east side of town, we were impressed. The entire drive on the 90 had been beautiful. Ranches with horses, old abandoned railroad tracks and bridges, and some geological phenomenons good enough to be in Yellowstone.
The Grizzly Lake Trail at Yellowstone is an awesome and fairly easy hike, but be prepared to get wet. May is pretty much the middle of the wet season in Yellowstone (if the snow is even thawed that is), so it was muddy and wet 100 yards into the trail. We hadn’t really expected it (or had hoped for the best), so Ross had to run back to the car early on to get better footwear.
