Headwaters State Park is virtually empty of visitors in the cold winter months. We had the first confluence entirely to ourselves and enjoyed hearing the ice sheets collide into each other on the river's surface.

My go-to winter trail in Yellowstone.
Great fall weather in the Valley this weekend.
A single Treeline GEO is $2 - not sure where the $8 price came from.
To Howard - Today's herd in Wind Caves NP originated from only 20 bison, some of which were from Yellowstone's herd. In most regards, they are genetically similar. They have higher genetic diversity to other plains bison. A few other areas in North America technically have wild populations of plains bison including Pink Mountain and Prince Albert National Park in Canada and the Henry Mountains in Utah.

A potential con for hikers is that the trail is traveled by horse parties coming from the Roosevelt Corrals. Be prepared to wait if you encounter one so the procession can pass.
Wonderful dayhike to Mt. Blackmore yesterday. Was treated to wildflowers everywhere!
Counted 399 people on my way back down from the lake. The earlier you start this hike, the better!
