One of our biggest so called adventures of Yellowstone was the Washburn hike. Surely not a extreme adventure it was a all day event that after 14 miles left us wanting to “be done” and just go home and crash on the porch. We left a car on top of Washburn and traversed off the ridge to the East scampering down a steep slope to the meadows below. Once in the thicket of grizzly bear country we traversed over to the big canyon. Then to an awaiting beetle that would whisk us off to our cabin apartment. When one partner works in Bozeman and one in the park it is nice to squeeze out the small weekend adventure.
