The weekend of 14 Aug 09, Tracy and I went to Yellowstone to finally hike to Shoshone

Geyser Basin (Google Map).  I had wanted to do this for a few years, but the weather never

seemed to cooperate.  We car-camped outside of Island Park, ID,  on Friday, and started the

trail early on Saturday morning.  We hiked the 9 miles out to the geyser basin, but the trail was

fairly flat and easy.  We had the basin completely to ourselves, and it was really cool.  Minute

Man Geyser was erupting the whole time, and that was cool.  After leaving the basin, we

checked out Shoshone Lake, and then back-tracked 2 miles back to our campsite.  It got down

to about 29 inside the tent that night, but other than a couple of snow showers, the night was

uneventful.  We got up about 5:30 on Sunday morning to try to catch Lone Star Geyser.  We

arrived back at Lone Start about 8 am...only to learn that it looked like we had missed it by

about 15 minutes.  That sucked.  But we finished hiking out and headed back home after a 20

mile weekend.

Here are a few videos of the geysers: Minute Man; Another Minute Man; Lone Star.
