YELL Day 35

Wednesday 07/31/2013

My friend came to visit and brought two of her neices, both age ten! They were all so fun to play with! Sometimes K gets some pretty rowdy boys on his hikes. Boys just naturally try to fall off cliffs, throw sticks and rocks, and stomp on every log they can find in the forest. They seriously "tear the place apart!" Hiking with girls is so different. They went to the lakeshore and sweetly called back to me, "Are we allowed to skip rocks?" Yes, my dear angels, skip all the rocks you please. Later we went to West Thumb Geyser Basin, possibly my favorite thermal area in the park, and a ranger was explaining that an elk calf met its demise earlier this spring by stepping into that hot pool of water. You can see the white baby elk bones remaining. Let that be a lesson to us all!
