Yellowstone Park, View from Mt. Washburn

Rain threatened but we left our camp for a hike up Mt. Washburn. As we arrived at the trailhead a dark storm thundered and poured rain and hail. Soon it passed so we put on raingear and started the hour long hike. We met many shivering hikers coming down in shorts and shirts, running to stay warm. Small bursts of rain came and went as we continued up the gradual trail, skirting around the mountain revealing changing views in every direction. The Beartooth range to the east led to Yellowstone Canyon, Hayden Valley and Yellowstone lake to the south, and briefly the skies cleared to show the Tetons far beyond. To the west stretched grey burned timber, all the way to the horizon. Considering the weather I was lucky to get a watercolor sketch looking south from a protected outcrop near the summit, which inspired the etching:
