Awesome views along the Yellowstone River! Very cool suspension bridges that we crossed. Hiking out back to the road was killer with a 1000 foot elevation gain in about 3 miles, but a great sense of accomplishment. We stayed at campsite IY5 which was amazing and right next to the river with tree coverage. We hiked about 18.5 miles and hitchhiked back to our car which was parked at hell roaring. We topped our trip off by soaking in the Boiling River. Great time!!
