A couple weeks ago my friend Heather and I spent four days hiking through the Bechler Region in Yellowstone. It’s in the southwest part of the park and also known as Cascade Corner. Four days, 30 miles, countless waterfalls, one set of grizzly tracks, wildlfowers and berries, backcountry hot springs…it was amazing. Since I took a zillion pictures I’ll let them tell the story.
The first 2.5 miles of trail are an old road along the Firehole River that leads to Lone Star Geyser.
hot spring– we were constantly amazed at how cool it was at seeing all this in the backcountry, with so few other people around.

I did not miss having to hoist our food up high while camping with the kids this month. Looks like a cool trip!
WOW!That looks like an amazing trip! I am so jealous. The wildflowers and grizzly tracks shots were awesome.
