Mount Washburn - Yellowstone National Park

The hike up Mt. Washburn to the fire tower at the top is about 2 miles each way and climbs from about 8700ft to over 10,243ft. This hike is appropriate for able bodied individuals and it is well worth the 2 or 3 hours. Its good to try to do something other than hop out of your car look at something with the crowd. Our first hike like this was Harney Peak in Custer State Park near Mount Rushmore and we discovered that the kids really liked this kind of thing. We have since climbed Mt. Washington in New Hampshire, Hurricaine Mt. in the Adirondacs, Cadillac Mountain in Acadia, Mt. Kineo in Maine and to the bottom of the Grand Canyon as well as other minor treks.

Yellowbellied Marmott looking for handout.  They always tell you never to feed the wildlife and we never do, except for mosquitos and we try to avoid that as well.
