Today we kind of did what Ron wanted to do since it's his birthday. We headed back up the mountains to hike "The Loop". When we got there we discovered the trail was four miles one way, but we decided to take the trail for half an hour and see what we could see. It was kind of a sad hike since we were walking through a forest that had been destroyed by a wildfire in 2003. It was amazing to see how the forest was regenerating itself. It's appears to be a very slow process, but it was happening. On the way back down the mountain we stopped at a beautiful waterfall and had our picnic lunch. It's sad we are leaving tomorrow, but Yellowstone is calling us. Tonight we are going out to celebrate Ron's birthday. It will be a happy and sad occasion since we are parting ways tomorrow. We have so enjoyed traveling with two other couples. I personally think it's the only way to go.
