Great Yellowstone Adventure Part 1: The Front Country

August 9, 2019 | 17

It takes a couple days of driving to get from the Hiker Trailer rally in Colorado, to Montana where my Great Yellowstone Backpacking Adventure starts. I arrive at Moose Creek Flat campground outside of Big Sky, MT on July 1st with a smile. It’s taken four years to get back to this area, but I…

The Long Way Around

October 5, 2015 | 38

Thursday, October 1 I’m about 90% sure I see a wolf when driving to my morning truck appointment in West Yellowstone. The air is cool, traffic is almost non-existant, and puddles grace the pavement from last night’s rain. Around a curve a light colored shape is trotting along the shoulder towards me on the other…

Gallatin National Forest Camping

September 28, 2015 | 16

Well, it’s getting to be that time again. After four and a half months of working in Yellowstone National Park; the nights are getting cooler, the aspen are losing their leaves, and visitation is (finally) slowing down. It won’t be long now. Last Monday (the 21st) was the south district going away party, held at…

Thursday, August 27 If at first you don’t succeed, try try again.

Firehole Lake and Virginia City

June 11, 2015 | 26

Earlier this week after work I traveled scenic Firehole Lake Drive on a whim, a little one-way road between Madison and Old Faithful, about nine miles from where I’m living. I wasn’t sure what to expect…. that’s really one of the best parts of full-timing – the excitement of something new. I crave new experiences…

Into Yellowstone

May 11, 2015 | 57

Friday, May 8 Today is another short driving day, from the Walmart parking lot in Billings, MT to the Conoco/Town Pump tuck stop in Livingston about two hours west. A good chunk of the day is spent at a rest stop midway between the two on I90. Why? Because it’s bad form to stay too…

Road to Yellowstone

May 7, 2015 | 37

Tuesday, May 5 The weather is promising: mild temperatures, a cornflower blue sky adorned with wispy white clouds, a beautiful spring day. A good day for driving. By 10 am I’m rolling down my parent’s driveway, it’s a right turn from there to get to Yellowstone. The biggest journey starts with but a single step.…
