Finally got around to hiking up to the top of Avalanche Peak. This view from the trail shows Sylvan Lake below and the southern end of Yellowstone Lake in the distance:

Looked like more fun than walking back down around the snow, and I figured my ripstop nylon hiking pants would work just about as well, so I took the quick way down — Who says an old dog can’t learn new tricks? :lol: :P :lol: But, hey, if you happen to go up there and find the pocket knife I lost, PM me, will ya??? ;) LOL
