  Paddling to the Yellowstone Thorofare

Thanks for the reply!

I think I worded something that caused confusion when I said that I have a recreational kayak so I hug the shoreline and this would be something new. I meant that paddling a recreational kayak would be new. I would still stay close to the shoreline. One of the reasons we don't plan to leave from Grant Village, besides the increased distance, is the open water crossing at the South Arm

I know there is a Ranger Station at Trail Creek, but I wonder how often a Ranger is there. Two weeks ago I did a day hike to and from Heart Lake and the Ranger Station there was locked up.

A ranger did tell me that I would not be allowed to keep the kayak at the Ranger Station but must keep it out of site from campsites or other camps if I leave it to backpack. Was that an issue for you or did you only paddle from one site to another?

I would very much like to see any photos you are willing to share. My e-mail is
