Yellowstone Lake

Yellowstone Lake

The park's largest lake is Yellowstone Lake. This "matchless mountain lake" was probably seen by John Colter on his famous winter trip of discovery in 1807-1808. Before that, Native Americans surely camped on its shores every summer. Although it is unlikely that Native Americans lived here, many arrowheads, spearheads, and other artifacts have been found near the lake.

Re: Interesting!

I looked it up and Yellowstone Lake is at 7733 feet (2410.5 Meters. Even in early August the nights were very chilly here requiring warm sleeping bags if sleeping in a tent.
