Yellowstone 2019 Day 3
Thursday, July 18, 2019
Day 3 was a relatively short hike of just under 10 miles, but we had almost 1,700 ft of elevation change.
My birthday started off perfectly with a moose sighting as we were preparing to hit the trail. We did some off trail travel and some water crossings. I took an unexpected swim during one of them. We ended at High Lake campsite (WD5).
Start: Lower Fan Creek (WC2) (7,334 ft.)
Peak Elevation: 8,812 ft.
Finish: High Lake (WD5) (8,805 ft.)
Elevation Change: 1,693 ft.
