trout lake,

It might be fall, but now is a good time to start planning your summer trip to Yellowstone National Park. Yellowstone hosts over 4 million visits a year and more than half of these happen June-August. Arrive early, stay late and if you walk half a mile from your car, you’ll leave the crowds behind (in most cases). And be sure to take the #YellowstonePledge to protect this park for current and future generations. Summer photo of Trout Lake by Jacob W. Frank, National Park Service.


Two lake trout caught during the Tulit'a fishing derby on Trout Lake. The derby was held in early April and there were 50-60 people out on the ice! You could still drive the winter road out to the lake - though the road was quickly melting and turning into a mud hole! Tulit'a, Northwest Territories, Canada.
