Yellowstone: Day 4

This post may contain compensated links. Find more info in my disclaimer.

Heather had to leave early on the fourth day of our Yellowstone vacation. I, however, did not. I took a little hike on the Blacktail Trail to the Yellowstone River.

There was a sign at the trailhead warning of a grizzly on the trail the previous day. I figured that since the big bruins have a territory of 100 square miles, it was probably long gone by the time I got there. I still did a whole lot of yelling as I walked down the trail.

Total mileage: 7.5 miles

No bears down there.

Wolf track near the pond.

I followed these tracks almost all the way to the river.


Bridge over the Yellowstone. It was closed for construction.

Looking upstream.

Ranger cabin that I wish I could live in.
