Wyoming Explored: Curt Gowdy State Park Hidden Falls – Winter Version

One of the more popular hikes in southeastern Wyoming, the ~4 mile hike to Hidden Falls in Curt Gowdy State Park is great all year around. However, in the summer (even more so since COVID19 hit) it is CROWDED. I much prefer solitude, so Hidden Falls in the winter months are my go-to for waterfall… Continue reading Wyoming Explored: Curt Gowdy State Park Hidden Falls – Winter Version

Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Days 7 & 8: Midway Geyser Basin, Jenny Lake, Hidden Falls, Colter’s Bay, and Granite Creek Falls

Day 7 - August 28, 2020 Sad, the final morning in Yellowstone. Hindsight is always something that can come into play, and looking back I would've done this day much differently and spent the night off in the national forest near the Hoback Canyon, but alas... hindsight is 20/20. It still wasn't a bad day,… Continue reading Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Days 7 & 8: Midway Geyser Basin, Jenny Lake, Hidden Falls, Colter’s Bay, and Granite Creek Falls

It got stormy overnight, and I was awaken… Continue reading Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Day 6: Fairy Falls, Black Sand Basin, and Upper Geyser Basin

Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Day 5: Mammoth Hot Springs, Undine Falls, Biscuit Basin, Mystic Falls, and Lower Geyser Basin

Day 5 - August 26, 2020 Early mornings in Yellowstone are special. The cool temperatures create a steam-filled landscape that just puts me in the most special mood. I'm not a morning person at all, but I became a morning person in Yellowstone. Today would have me driving from Madison up to Mammoth Hot Springs… Continue reading Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Day 5: Mammoth Hot Springs, Undine Falls, Biscuit Basin, Mystic Falls, and Lower Geyser Basin

Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Day 4: Artist Point, Norris Geyser Basin, Artists’ Paint Pots, Monument Geyser Basin, and Firehole Lake Drive

Day 4 - August 25, 2020 Today was the day that taught me early mornings are the key to a more enjoyable Yellowstone experience. I'm not talking about extreme early mornings, but getting to places at 7:30am greatly increases the positive visitor experience! I packed up and headed out of Canyon Campground with a mug… Continue reading Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Day 4: Artist Point, Norris Geyser Basin, Artists’ Paint Pots, Monument Geyser Basin, and Firehole Lake Drive
