Cascade lake hike, Yellowstone

Howdee all,

Jeff and the Gals, Jen, Jennifer, Sicksta Charlene and I…were feeling like we needed to hike another five miles after we did the Mount Washburn hike.

So we decided to hike to Cascade Lake.

An easy 5 miles round trip hike.cascade lake hike_20090902_002 Out to Cascade Lake cascade lake hike_20090902_008You can see that there was a previous burn in the area.  cascade lake hike_20090902_013  It was another beautiful afternoon the water was still..cascade lake hike_20090902_010Jeff brought his fishing pole…….cascade lake hike_20090902_012 He stopped fishing to view a coyote who wanted to use the same path. cascade lake hike_20090902_017The young looking coyote ignored us and went on hunting for its dinner… cascade lake hike_20090902_027

Lucky for this Grouse and her young…the coyote just missed finding her… cascade lake hike_20090902_049Mom was keeping a watchful eye over this little fellow…cascade lake hike_20090902_046Jeff didn't catch any fish…cascade lake hike_20090902_038

We didn't stay long because Jennifer had a date with the shower ..and because there are no electrical hookups at Mammoth campground we had to be back before 7 so she could have a long hot shower…cascade lake hike_20090902_055   Some sort of Dandelion seed headcascade lake hike_20090902_060Heading back…see Mr. Buffalo in the distance? rightcascade lake hike_20090902_052Just hanging out……. cascade lake hike_20090902_056

As we drove home we noticed a fire in the distance…controlled burn_20090902_004
