This is so relaxing and beautiful! My mother and I left the boys to fish while we experienced this delightful hike. The trail is mostly level, and leads you through many different types of habitats. It starts in a meadow, passing two small lakes that were full of ducks when we were there. From there, it's a short jaunt to the shore of Yellowstone Lake, and the trail winds along the shore until you reach Storm Point. Standing on the point and looking out across this vast body of water can almost make you feel that you are the only person within miles of here. After the point, the trail turns back into the forest, and it's like a whole new world. The little sunlight that filters in gives this place a cathedral-like appearance, absolutely awe-inspiring. This is definitely my favorite short hike in Yellowstone, and my mother's, too!
