Spent Aug. 26-27 exploring Yellowstone. Saw pretty much everything in the loop, coming in and out of the south and west entrances.

This was the second stop of my quick tour of Yellowstone.

The falls were great, but the people and pavement detract. I continued down the south rim to some pretty nice overlooks and eventually Ribbon Lake, which I would not really suggest to anyone to be honest. Its a pretty bland, buggy lake and the trail was not even that great. Silver Cord Cascade is hard to see and rather pedestrian as well, so not much going on there either. Clear Lake on the other hand and the rest of the loop were very pleasant. In particular, I liked the geothermal activity along the trail and I thought Clear Lake was a nice destination. The trail ended to some nice meadows and I cut a little corner to shorten the road walk back to my car.
