Slough Creek

Steve and I first hiked along Slough Creek in Yellowstone about 30 years ago, and it was just as much fun exploring it with the grandkids. 
An old park ranger cabin overlooks the creek. 
A bear had wandered nearby.  Probably a black bear.  We didn't see him. 
The kids threw grasshoppers in the water and  watched cutthroat trout rise to the occasion. 
Playing around with Dad is always fun.
Do these kids ever run out of energy?  Not that I can tell!

  4. It's a lovely place to hike and wonderful to be able to share it with your grandchildren. They may not run out of energy but I bet they sleep soundly at night.

  9. One of the perks of being a grandparent is sharing things we love with them. That was one BIg bear if the scat is any indication. (Shaped like a heart, no less!)

  15. Great family fun pics--looks like your gkids are not suffering nature deprivation! If you ever get cabin fever in late winter, check out the good x-ski trails in the Mammoth area.

  16. It's nice to see the kids having a great time out in nature. Lucky kids! I bet as adults they'll talk about tossing grasshoppers for fish.
