Hike In Yellowstone Park

Bit of a last minute thing but I plan on going into Yellowstone on Sunday if the weather is good to take some wildlife pictures. Figured I'd see if anyone would want to come along and do a hike as well.

I know some people were looking to go to Yellowstone a while back to see the sights. I don't plan on going to old faithful but we can stop and see the thermal features in mammoth and I want to go to the Lamar valley to take animal pictures. It's an hour drive to Yellowstone from Livingston and we will be in the park most of the day (so don't plan to hike and leave if unless you drive yourself) :)

There TONS of places to go hiking so I'd like to do that also. There are some good ones right in Mammoth. One I love is the Clagette Butte - Snow Pass Loop. It's 4.6 miles with 1,100 ft elevation gain. It goes by thermal features, though forests, up to the top of a mountain where you can overlook everything and past a small pond. Not sure what it's like this time of year but I also have a book full of other Yellowstone hikes if that doesn't work out.

I can fit 4 other people in my car and it wont cost anything to get into the park because I have a year pass. I'd suggest bringing lots of layers, food, water, a camera and bear spray if you have it :)

    Sorry it's so last minute, but I'm not gonna be able to go after all. I woke up feeling really crappy. Have fun, I'll try to come to the next one!

    Sorry for the last minute change -- I've got way too much work to finish this weekend, so I don't think I can go. Hopefully we can plan another trip there this year (maybe for cross country skiing?).

    Anyone interested in a carpool from bozeman? 8:20 in the albertsons parking lot?

    Oh also, a friend just went on Thursday and said that the park is very quiet, apparently due to the government shut down. So just a heads up, most places are going to be closed, so there won't be any places to buy stuff and the grizzly bears are out in full force (friend saw two alongside the road alone) so we will need to be extra aware if we do much hiking.

    I am pretty sure I can go, but (*nerd alert*) I'll probably need to study for my Monday exam in the car. I'm sure any hike we do in the Lamar Valley will be super fun - we can probably just be prepared and decide on the way/when we get there. Any interest in hitting the boiling river for a bit on the way home? I've never been, and it seems like about the right time of the year to go...

      study away! I'd be game for the boiling river. I've been to it but never in it.
