Hiking Yellowstone National Park
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. I visited with my friend Karen, a volunteer science student that was working the whole summer in the park. This was one of the best trips in my life, and I'm happy to have discovered Yellowstone in a much more thorough way.
