SV! Day 26
Wednesday 16 July 2014
Susan and I drove over to West Thumb to go on Ranger Brian's Scenic Lake Overlook hike, a hike that Ken and I did last year. It's 2 miles round trip. Brian showed us where Preacher (my bear, see my Facebook cover photo) has been scratching his claws.
Afterward, we walked out on this really long sandbar near the Arnica Burn Area and I spied this red aquatic plant that grows like lily pads, but is clearly much different. Hm. Some of those lodgepole soldiers have tipped over and one can really see the tenacity to survive!
