100 Mile Club.....


8:34 am - Wednesday - 60º F, humidity 54%, wind 3 mph out of the east northeast.....with a forecast high of 89º F.....YIKES!

Our goal for Tuesday was to first stop off at the local YCERP (Yellowstone Co-Op Employee Recreation) office to register for the 100 Mile Club....a hiking club.  We like to hike, but it is nice to have some accountability to get us out there on our off days to get in some miles, and see some more amazing scenery.  It's been a little hot lately, and we need the motivation to get out there even if it is a little warm for our liking.  I filled up both 100 oz. Camelbacks with water and ice in preparation for some hiking, and we were off by 11 am for our first destination....Wraith Falls.....

.....I heard some exuberant yelling from the river, so I peeked over the railing to see some rafters sailing by....
