Day 16 – Hebgen Lake to Yellowstone Park

Fri 18th June 2010 It was a frost last night so we set off wearing plenty of warm gear. The sun was already shining on the mountains on the other side of the lake but we were on the wrong side and in the shade for quite a while. With only 78 miles to do […]

Day 15 – Twin Bridges to Hebgen Lake
