Whereupon Jody Gives Angie the Storm Point Tour
Saturday 20 June 2015
Well, that's not entirely true. TR gave a lot of the tour PLUS he showed us some secrets on the trail!
First up, geology. We saw the outlet of Indian Pond and explored some geologic layers of ash that Harlan showed to Ken. Then TR showed us some wire stuck in a tree. This is left from an old fence put up back in the day to keep the cows in. Yes, folks, they had dairy cows penned up to provide fresh milk for the Lake Hotel! And then...super coolness...he took us off trail at another point and showed us a circle of rocks in a clearing. They don't know how long it's been there, but it's at least fifty years old. Could it be a more ancient geologic site? Perhaps. A teepee ring? perhaps. We don't know.
We drove out to Lewis Lake and Lewis Falls. TR has to touch "new" water so there he is dipping his hand into the Lewis River. And then we finished our excursion at West Thumb. I'm slightly addicted to photographing West Thumb. Again, the light was different in the evening.
