Hiking up Mount Washburn
This was the easiest hike to the top of a mountain with great views we have ever done. It is about 6 miles round trip, but the elevation change is only about 1400 feet, and the trail is not very steep at all. We saw families with small children do it.
On the top is a fire tower. You can see the Tetons and all surrounding areas. There were warning signs about Grizzleys, but we only saw yellow bellied marmots. Lots of pretty wildflowers on the way up!
Grand View from Mt. Washburn
We started out in mid-morning. Reached the top and enjoyed a picnic lunch looking over the park. We noticed clouds to the west, so we started down. Halfway back, it started to snow (few flakes), but the temperature had dropped about 20 degrees F (11 degrees C). It was suddenly cold.
