So, trying (real hard) to be a "good guy" for my lady. I'm working to cross something off her bucket-list this summer. She has never hiked in Yellowstone (she has seen it superficially) and has been talking about it a bunch and since I claim to listen to everything she says, it's time to act.
I've been to Yellowstone, but it's been a while; pre-hammock. Also, my idea of hiking and her idea of hiking aren't exactly lined-up with each other. Translated: She doesn't like to work too hard. Translated again: Looking for short hiking days to accommodate long leisurely breaks taking in the views.
The info out there on Yellowstone is overwhelming; guess I know how a hammock noob feels their first few weeks on HF. Therefore, I'm calling upon my fellow hangers to help me narrow things down and make the research feasible. Anybody familiar with Yellowstone have any thoughts? Remember, this will be the lady's first hiking trip there and I would like it to live up to the pictures she has floating around in her head; she flipping loves waterfalls...just sayin. Impossible task, I know, but it would be great if we could get into an area where we will only encounter a few hundred people a day.
Wide open to suggestions. I'm thinking we'll probably want to spend 5-6 days in the park. They don't all have to be hiking days, although that would be my preference. So any hybrid ideas will be well received.
Hammock sleeping is of course, mandatory....legal is a personal issue/risk.
Thanks guys and gals!
