|Lake Yellowstone from the Lake Overlook.|
We hiked back down being distracted once again by the critters we encountered. Matt and I have a joke that if the guide books say the hike will take 2-4 hours we will not be able to do it in under four. We must stop and poke at mushrooms, admire marmots, listen to birdsong, ponder scat. It takes us longer, but its not as if its a race or anything. That is part of the joy of it! The stopping to marvel at wonders great and small, far and near.
