    I hike in Yellowstone regularly. There are a few areas I won’t hike in, in August, because the bison are in rut. They are nuts at that time, and it’s just not worth it, so I pick a different area...

    Thanks for explaining that. I had gotten to the backcountry option, but abandoned it when I’d need to fill in the group size. (Commitment is hard.)

    I laughed out loud at that. Your lawyer skills would surely keep her out of jail. Dang I miss her bread, and even more, her meatloaf. That should have been illegal because it was so good. Back to...

    My grandmother made it in Iowa, and she didn’t go to jail, so I think it is legal to make it outside of Boston. I had a can of brown bread on my first backpacking trip. We were headed to Mount Le...

    I second the recommendation of a hood. I even use mine in the summer in the high mountains, and that attached hood makes such a difference when it’s chilly and there’s a breeze.

    I live near Yellowstone, and go as often as I can. There is no single hike that “is” Yellowstone. When people come to visit me, I recommend that they see the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone, a...

    I hope you do get the sites you want, but if you don’t, they’re all pretty good, in one way or another. You know, just thinking out loud, if you wanted to, instead of hiking from 7 mile directly to...

    If you can’t find one, somehow, you could potentially get a big-sh tarp. Maybe one of those winter-wonderland type tarps that have doors. You could have a palace between your tent and your tarp.

    The group site is only for groups, so unless you’re taking six or more friends, that one’s out. Both of the alternates are nice. Your wife can only drive within about two miles of those sites. ...

    JNI64, I’ll show you around some spots in Yellowstone if you’ll show me around the Dolly Sods. :-) I’ve always heard about the place, just never gotten there. You make it sound really interesting.
