Miscellaneous

Over the long weekend of 4 Jul 08, Chris and Stacia flew in from Seattle, and we all four went

to the Tetons and Yellowstone for the weekend.  The Tetons were pretty crowded, so we

camped Friday night just outside of the south entrance of Yellowstone.  Saturday we tried to

get a permit to backpack to Shoshone Lake, but the snow was too bad, so we got a permit for

Heart Lake (Google Map).  We hiked 10 miles out to the south end of the lake and set up

camp.  The hike was nice and fairly flat.  We saw a geyser erupt in the geyser basin, and that

was cool.  The bugs were pretty bad, but we didn't have too much of a problem with them.

The backpack was 20 miles, so I was happy to have done that kind of distance...and with no

pain or blisters!  We didn't really see any wildlife over the whole weekend, which was a little

strange for Yellowstone.
