A beautiful, easy hike through the forests and large meadows of Yellowstone National Park. Keep an eye out for deer, elk and sand hill crane sightings.

This was our last day of our 5 days in the Bechler River region of Yellowstone National Park. This was a day of breaking down camp and slowly hiking out along Boundary Creek. What a wonderful hike along Boundary Creek with incredible views of the Teton Range. There is one crossing of the creek along this hike.

Beautiful scenery abounds with Confederate Falls, Dunanda Falls, Silver Scarf Falls, Horseshoe Cascade, Acheron Falls, and Birdseye Falls. Looking forward to going back to see them all next trip.

We went point-to-point in a day, starting at Fish Creek Rd (in Island Park) to Cave Falls (in Yellowstone Park).
