The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.
There has been a change in the route for my Yellowstone backpack, as the Park Service didn't give me a reservation for my proposed Bechler River-Shoshone Lake trip. Instead, we'll be doing about a 35-mile backpack starting at the Canyon Village area and finishing at the Pelican Creek trailhead east of Fishing Bridge. The route will take us to Wapiti Lake, and then along Astringent Creek and Pelican Creek valley. We'll spend at least one and possibly two days day hiking to and exploring some remote thermal areas north of Wapiti Lake. Access to those areas will require some cross-country travel. This trip is MOD owing to the distance and the cross country travel. Elevation gain/loss is minimal. Limit: 8
