July 19th, 2012 - Yellowstone
I awoke to a warm tent and a full bladder we had successfully slept in. After eating some oatmeal we packed our bags for the day and headed off to the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone to check out Artist Point. The waterfall was beautiful but a little crowded so we decided to head out on a short backcountry hike to Lilly Pad Lake. After making a burrito stop we hiked down to Yellowstone river to relax and swim for a while. We continued north to Lamar Valley where we spotted a bear and her two cubs and watched the sunset from the top of Mt. Washburn. Then topped the night off with a warm fire and dinner at the camp site.
