Parked at Tower Junction and biked the road until about 8,000 feet then skinned the rest of the way to the top. The views are amazing up there and we had a great descent. We saw a wolf near the road on our way out. If you are skiing this make sure to talk to rangers first because a lot of the area is permanently closed for grizzlies and you have to follow a specific route.
Nice lookout and summit area. Easy hike, but had to leave the road briefly to avoid a bison coming down.
Hiked on family vacation. The people who got to the top just after I did said they saw a cougar! That would have been exciting.
Nice hike, with lots of snow! Great views.
Hiked up with a French ex rugby player who was touring the USA by van. Took about an hour up and slightly less down. We both liked the overlook area.
Nice hike in the National Park. Hiked up later in the evening and still quite a few people out on the trail. Got back down just a bit before sunset. Nice day hiking in Wyoming, this one was my third P2K of the day.
1st climb in Yellowstone. What a great trail and wonderful views!
Started around 4pm and got back at 6pm. Barely beat a thunderstorm. Not sure the others out there were as lucky.
Me and everyone else. Still a nice view with some sheep near by.
Took my time walking up to keep my breathing steady and to enjoy the views. The fire watchtower was cool to see. Walking back down, I almost slipped a few times on the loose gravel. Overall, it was a great hike.
First summit in Yellowstone. Fantastic views and got to have a nice chat withy the lookout.
Trail was mostly snow packed. Climbed Washburn to finish the second challenge of the Yellowstone Half Marathon weekend. Great views. Loved it!
As Hurricane Katrina barreled down on Louisiana.
With Alana. Many other times, both summer and winter for work. Great peak with a nice warm concrete shelter at the top.
Saw a black bear on this one. Lots of folks on the trail.
An enjoyable hike. Some snow on the trail. Windy at the top.
Very enjoyable half day hike with MD. Saw bears and bison on the drive in from the northern side of the park. Saw tons of marmots and bighorn sheep on the hike itself.
Finally made it up with the whole family. We had tried it several times years ago when the older kids were little and the younger kids hadn't arrived yet. I carried my 4 year old at least half way up and probably 3/4 of the way down so we could hurry as the weather was iffy. Our up time was 1.5 hours and down time was one hour. It rained all morning so we weren't really planning on it but once we pulled into the parking lot, it looked like it might clear up so we went for it. The sun broke out and we had a rather warm hike despite the rain all morning.
Got to the top of the fire lookout - pretty overviews
