"Fair amount of snow still left to hike through. Hit by a fast moving storm with lightning and hail. Had to hunker down off the side of a ridge for about 25 minutes before hitting the summit." - KevinAB, Jun 22, 2014
"This was listed as one of the best day hikes in Yellowstone. My wife said I could not hike it by my self. She came with. The hike did take longer but the company was great. We met people from all over the world. A young man from Great Briton could not believe the natures wonders at Yellowstone. " - glensailsbury, Oct 7, 2010
"Great weather, and beautiful scenery, perfect but dangerous motorcycling roads. Dangerous because of sightseeing and animals, I almost hit a full grown female moose. I can't wait to go back to Yellowstone." - valkyreel, Sep 30, 2010
