Weekend Wanderings - Playing on Yellowstone Lake


Yellowstone Lake is the largest alpine (7000+ feet above sea level) in North America, and one of my favorite places to escape from the world. With 110 miles of shoreline and a deepest point of over 400 feet, it is no small or calm space - it takes at least an hour to cross in a pretty quick boat, and it's not uncommon to see whitecaps and 3-4 foot swells (or larger!) when an afternoon storms rolls off the mountains. Many of those miles of shoreline abut some of the most remote wilderness in North America, rivaled only by Alaska in it's distance from the nearest road. So, can you think of a better place to take a really adorable little guy out for his 1st birthday? As his mom is a former guide on the Lake and mom and dad were married on an island in the middle of it, I certainly can't!

  2. Hopping through. Are you a Montana blogger? I'm a Billings girl. I see your link to Bozeman's library and the Montana ebook database - I just downloaded a book from there 10 minutes ago.

    1. I am! I'm originally from Oregon, but home these days is Gardiner. Livingston and Bozeman are our closest libraries so it was like Christmas 10x over when Livingston joined the ebook database - I hadn't been able to check out a library book in literally years before that! My checkbook is MUCH happier now :)
