Hiking in Yellowstone National Park, A Photo Gallery


In 1993 I hitched, walked, climbed, and hiked from Jackson Hole, Wyoming to Yellowstone National Park. Along the way I covered around 10 minor peaks and logged about 150 miles by foot. For most of my trip, I visited with my friend Karen Heidemann of Bremen, Germany. Karen volunteered in Yellowstone on a botany science project for the whole summer, and she is now a professor of botany at the University of Trier. This was one of the best trips in my life, and I'm happy to have discovered Yellowstone in a much more thorough way.


Let me tell you about the time I woke up under a buffalo...
