Yellowstone? I've done it all.

Post by Mike W. »

At least according to the ranger at the visitors center this past summer. Now I am a multi trip visitor who does some, but not intensive hiking, in addition to the easy stuff like the Upper Geyser Basin, but I rattled off some of the things I've done there and asked for suggestions for new trips. And he said, well, sounds like you've done it all. And left it at that. Uh, I'd like to think I have some idea of what I don't know, and I'm well aware there's a ton of Yellowstone stuff I don't know. But apparently the ranger and I were even on what I don't know.

More of a trip report later.

Watch Stan Mills YouTube videos if you want to see some lesser-known hikes.

Oh I know I can find more, but I was disappointed at his attitude. I mean it's his job to know this stuff and he either didn't or didn't want to bother. Oh well, not the first for that in any profession.

We have had similar experiences with some of the rangers. That said, I guess about 1/3 of the rangers were very helpful, 1/3 were so-so, and 1/3 were not interested or just incompetent. I think you hit one of the bottom 1/3 :roll:
