Undine Falls was fairly close to Mammoth Hot Springs, so I decided to pull out and see what it was all about. I hadn’t heard anything about it, so I wasn’t expecting much, but it was actually a pretty cool waterfall. It’ situated at the end of a valley, much like in the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, but on a much smaller scale. The fact that this isn’t a main attraction at the park was a huge bonus, since I had the whole area to myself the entire time I was there.
Tower Falls for some reason is a prominent stop on the Yellowstone map I was provided the first day, so I was expecting something spectacular… instead, it was pretty lackluster. Definitely skip this one if you’re short on time… nothing you can’t see by pouring a cold cup of water down your own ass-crack.
Mystic falls was a hike that I’m happy I had the time to do today. It’s about 4 miles round trip, and the waterfall is absolutely gorgeous at the end. As an added bonus, a couple on their way back to the trailhead alerted me that there were a few wolves across the water crashed out after a recent kill. Thankfully they were still there passed out while I was passing through the valley, because the last thing a pack of wolves wants to deal with is a rugged mountain man confronting them in the wild. I took a few pictures of them to ensure they knew I was the alpha, and they seemed to get the hint since they were gone on my way back. I also ran across a bald eagle in the same area that seemed to be just chilling out and posing for pictures like a slut. I hate slutty bald eagles.
I highly suggest checking out Undine Falls, and hiking out to Mystic Falls, especially if you’re sick of all the crowds. It’s well worth taking the time to do so, and you’ll pretty much be sharing the entire trail with a handful of people.
