After camping at high altitude and below freezing temperatures, we hiked to the top of Wheeler Peak, the second highest peak in Nevada at 13,065 ft (3,982 m).
On our hike up to Amphitheater Lake we saw a black bear from up close, but luckily it was more interested in eating berries than humans.
Yellowstone has it all: huge and colorful geysers, big waterfalls, expansive valleys, lakes, hot springs, bears, and hundreds of bison.
This was the last of 3 National Parks we visited in Washington. After spending a lot of time trying to find a campsite during Labor Day, we hiked up to beautiful Hidden Lake. This was the first serious day hikes we did during our road trip.
We visited a couple of iconic places in Seattle such as Pike Place Market and the REI flagship store. We also ate lots of food we don’t get to enjoy while camping.
