  Paddling ystone lk
  Posted by: ppine on Aug-25-13 12:54 PM (EST)

Yellowstone Lk is colder, rougher, and more remote than most lakes in the lower 48. I would stay even closer than usual to the shoreline. The Plateau is relatively open and subject to mountain-valley winds, differential surface heating, and large scale fronts. It is a windy place. Paddle early in the day. Plan for layover days. With no wind, 18 miles is a long day on flat water with loaded boats for most people. Add some wind and you will need the long daylight of summer days to make 18 miles.
