Ascent Trip Report

Started from Glacier Boulder for a new change as we always would take one of the roads to the summit in the past. Wonderful hike through the woods following Yellowstone River, after a while it heads off in the direction of the summit. Pass close by a couple geothermal spots saw some elk and deer, with in about 200 yards, nice to see them without a traffic jam of people rubber necking. Should have brought bug spray, we were sprinting through the middle of the hike to get past a den of mosquitoes. Almost all the elevation gain is in less than a couple of miles and Chris was still trying to get us to race to the top. Good trail to the tree line but once above it more of a open country hike almost got lost. Glad there's the building at the top as I was drenched in sweat and the wind was not helping at the Summit. The hike down we went to Dunraven Pass, A marmot followed us down most of the way
