Springtime in Yellowstone: Sking, Climbing & Biking

My wife and I got married at the chapel at Mammoth Hot Springs, in Yellowstone, 28 years ago this week. We both got our seasonal start in Yellowstone in the 70's, pumping gas for YPSS.

We celebrated with dinner at the Mammoth Dining Room (where we had our reception 28 years ago) with our friends Dave and Nicholas on Friday night. That provided the fuel for the real celebration, when we got up at 4 and left Gardiner at 5 am yesterday to take a shot at the Quad. In my book the Quad is to take advantage of this sweet time of year when, if you work at it, you can ski, climb, boat and bike in the same day in this country. We do it because we still can, and to celebrate friends, this sweet Earth, our love of both and our ability to stretch our muscles and souls and get out in it.

We skied up Avalanche Peak for starters and had some of the best conditions in memory (we've done this a few times). Spectacular weather, views and ski conditions. Malts, root beer floats and a general snack fest at the Delaware North Store at Fishing Bridge store took the edge off and had to substitute for the boat stretch as we realized we were running short on time for the full Quad.

Next stop was the Hoo Doos, near Mammoth, for a bit of rock climbing. Then we headed down the hill to pick up the dogs and our bikes and do a mountain bike ride to the OTO Ranch, just outside of the park. All these years later I still can't believe we get to live here. Some shots from the day.
