Washburn  Sucess!

Short hike up the road- not many views due to big CA wildfires. Lots of bighorn sheep right on the trail.

Nice hike  Sucess!

A little tame, being passed by a maintenance pickup on the way down. Great views though, plus nice to get out of the wind at the top.

Bears abound  Sucess!

A fun, easy to follow, busy trail in September. Saw one black bear and ran into many other hikers who had seen more bears. Splendid views from the top.

great hike  Sucess!

Hiked with two friends from Dunraven Pass parking area on a cold, windy May day. Even though it was very cloudy, we could still see the Tetons far off to the south, some 75 miles away. Fantastic views throughout. This hike spurred my interest in scrambling/climbing more difficult mountains, to which I'll always be grateful!

Also climbed from Dunraven Pass on 5/28/09 with my girlfriend Becky. Snow was definitely an issue, but never encountered any dangerously steep patches. Summit views were quite clear, and the views were of course spectacular.

Family hike  Sucess!

At the time, it was my highest peak and I had such a sense of accomplishment. It was July and there were still snowbanks on the trail at some of the higher elevations which amazed and amused me and my brothers. Washburn was a fun hike and one that challenged me without putting me in over my head. Beautiful views on top.

Grizzly!  Sucess!

No much mountaneering here, but there is a very nice view from the top and we saw a huge male grizzly on the way up:

I made sure, I wasn't the slowest guy amongst all the spectators ;0)

Northern route - speedy ascent 1h to the summit and 30 min back. The girl waited in the car ;-)

Dunraven Pass  Sucess!

Had to do a double take at the twenty something guy hiking up the 'road' with trekking poles and a climbing helmet on.

I knew I should have worn my helmet. What was I thinking!

August 2000  Sucess!

Did it on a family vacation through the west. I especially loved the view of Yellowstone Canyon from the top. I also remember it being very windy from the top.

Yellowstone Day Hike  Sucess!

Mary and I did a day hike over Washburn while we were passing through Yellowstone on our way from the Tetons to Devils Tower. We arrived in the park late in the afternoon on Aug 12 and hiked to Lone Star Geyser, just in time for a major eruption. The following day we did the hike up Washburn, starting at Dunraven Pass and continuing on the North Spur trail past the hot springs to the Canyon (where we hitched a ride back to our car). We saw lots of bighorn sheep on the grassy ridge on the descent from the summit.
