This was the only summit of the day as I spent most of my time that day doing the nature trail near Indian Pond on the north shore of Yellowstone Lake. Good for the kids.

Spent a couple of days in the park but the Elephant Back Trail was the only one I hiked. I got to the top and saw someone using their cell phone so went back down and got my Internet tablet and went back up to update my Facebook account so my family knew that I was OK, as I had been out of touch for awhile with no cell service in the park. Also made a needed phone call to coordinate an upcoming climb of Eagle Peak.

This seems to be a favorite hike for lots of Lake employees. With it's easy accessibility, and the spectaular view of Lake Yellowstone offered at the top, it's easy to understand why.

Easy hike with a nice although partially obscured view of Yellowstone Lake. Got pounded by a hailstorm upon reaching the summit.

This was the very first hike I ever did as a employee in Yellowstone National Park. Working at Lake Lodge for 3 summers, I have made the hike up Elephant Back more times than I can remember. Full moon night hikes are always fun on this mountain, or when you and your buddies are all drunk and decide Elephant Back is within walking distance of the pub, so, "why not?"

I did this hike several times after work each summer that I worked in the park. Great for full moons, sunrises, etc.

When I worked in at Lake Yellowstone Hotel, I hiked/ran up this mountain too many times to count, early mornings, afternoons, evenings... A great one after work to put things into perspective.
