GPS HIKES & MAPS: Trip Search Products Using GPS

Not a podcast, but...

The Yellowstone team sent an update via e-mail this morning before hitting the trail (a park map may help you get a better feel for the area)...

Howdy! The Rolling Yellowstones are enjoying a breakfast of bagles and fruit with a view of Lake Yellowstone this AM. Sharing photos of the local wildlife and funny visitor stories have kept the team entertained since our rendevous at the Dogshead trailhead yesterday.

We had a great evening taking a short hike on the Elephant Back trail to a dramatic view of Lake Yellowstone with thunder heads and a little snow and hail thrown in for fun. We then went to the Lake General Store for burgers and ice cream. This morning we woke to two large Bison and a calf and Mary and Bev have been warning us the whole time about grizzly bears, which are abundant in the area ("don't go anywhere without your bear spray"). I feel like a gun slinger with my trusty bear spray by my side. This is a great group with most of us being "mature" in age with Jason being 32 a "quasi-carioca do Brasil." We are excited to hit probably the only part of the CDT that runs by major geyser basins.
