hiking 2:00:00  8.0 km (15:00 / km)
Beaver Ponds to Golden Gate to Mammoth Hot Springs
We started with a upwards hike towards Beaver Ponds. But we digressed at each trail junction and ended up exploring some new areas. It was really cool to find some hidden lakes and Mike spotted a great horned owl just off the trail. We hiked a bit longer than I planned so I ended up tired and hungry, with sore calves from all the climb, but I really enjoyed this hike.
I had tracked our hike, but eventually my Garmin filled up and it started to delete the oldest files, so I don't have this track any more.
For each hike on our trip, I am only entering the "moving time". We stop a lot on our hikes. To look at things. To enjoy the view. To take pictures. And on this trip, for Mike to watch birds.
