Bugs: Tiny black bugs – so small you could inhale them -- and some sort of white flies were out in full force and hungry. Nevertheless we did a four-mile hike on Lakeshore Trail that edged the lake. Parts of the lake are the color of sage—that turquoise, gray green color. Other times it looked sky blue. The trail has some interesting rock formation, including one that looked like a human skull. We also saw antelope, deer, grouse and geese. From the rig (besides the bison) we saw two jackrabbits – love those ears. Because of the bugs, at one point we were wearing our anoraks – light nylon windbreakers with hoodies – hats, and bandanas around our faces – we looked like the Unabomber or some sort of radical hiking religious sect. Despite all that, my eyes were ringed with bug bites and so was the right side of my face.
Beautiful: The view from the coach and while hiking was desolate and gorgeous – we could se the lake, several other islands, snowcapped mountains, sage and a huge sky.
This was our first trip with Cooper, our dog, and he did well.
