Hoodoo Trek in Yellowstone
Travel For Wildlife joined the Yellowstone Wolf Tracker, Nathan Varley, on a guided 6-day backcountry hike up to the remote Hoodoo Basin in Yellowstone National Park. (August 2013).
We saw wolf and bear signs everywhere (both black and grizzly) as well as a cougar track! We sighted moose, bison, pronhorns, elk, and mountain goats and a wide variety of birds and insects!
Our favorite thing about hiking with Yellowstone Wolf Tracker was that it was a “supported trek”, meaning Nathan hires additional guides to join the trek, carry gear, and cook all the meals. It was awesome!
Here are a few photos from our journey.
