Falling for Yellowstone: Day 1 – Oxbow Bend, Colter Bay, West Thumb Geyser Basin, Riddle Lake & Lewis Lake

I needed one last big adventure for 2022, and some more time spent sleeping in a tent before the year was up. One thing I've been saying the last few years is I needed to visit Yellowstone National Park in the later fall season to see it with moody weather and a lack of people,… Continue reading Falling for Yellowstone: Day 1 – Oxbow Bend, Colter Bay, West Thumb Geyser Basin, Riddle Lake & Lewis Lake

Caldera Tales – Day 2: Osprey Falls, Mammoth Hot Springs, & Artists Paintpots

"In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks." - John Muir Dawn at Slough Creek. No badger in sight. September 7th, 2021 I have never smoked anything in my life, but I woke up feeling as if I (assumingely) smoked cigarette after cigarette all night long. The air quality was stupidly… Continue reading Caldera Tales – Day 2: Osprey Falls, Mammoth Hot Springs, & Artists Paintpots
