2nd peak of the day  Sucess!

An hour up and 48 minutes down. A great way to finish the day before dinner in Mammoth.

Bunsen  Sucess!

Drizzled on a bit on the way up and down but had a nice window at the summmit. I was hoping Electric would reveal itself with a fresh coat of snow but it decided to stay hidden.

Bunsen loop  Sucess!

clockwise loop to Bunsen Peak then east down to B. loop road and side trip to Osprey Falls. I'd recommend doing it this way; where the Peak trail branches off the loop road is very indistinct and unmarked.

Mulitple Times  Sucess!

Climbed this peak more times than I can count over the last 30 years. Why not? It's in my back yard. Usually I get paid to climb it. Next time, notice the new log equipment shelter that we replaced the old crappy shack with. Also, was instrumental in removing all the abandoned TV and FM antenna masts and boxes from the mountain a few years back.

Bunsen Peak  Sucess!

Hiked up Bunsen Peak before going home. This peak and Mount Washburn seem to be the most visited in Yellowstone.

Hiked with the wife and DayHikerJr. He is getting heavier, but at least he hiked 10% of the trail.

Trail  Sucess!

Hiked with Mommy and Daddy. I hiked about a quarter mile and then Daddy carried me the rest of the way.

Bun in the Sun  Sucess!

This was the second time I've climbed Bunsen with my hubs. We took the scenic route via Osprey Falls and an east side bush whack.

Group of flatlanders  Sucess!

Took 12 midwestern kids up this as their first mountain. They were totally stoked.

The local prominence made them feel they'd climbed something bigger.

Nice short hike  Sucess!

Tried to go down east side to Osprey Falls but never found them, so I joined up with the old road and headed back to the car after summiting via the standard route
