    My husband and I are looking for up to four more people to hike to the remote and legendary Fairyland Geyser Basin (Yellowstone National Park) with us July 7-9th 2008. We already have the backcountry campsite reservations for those dates. Here's what you can expect:
    Day 1: 9 miles mostly flat easy trail hiking 2 miles off trail easy low hills into basecamp in beautiful Joseph's Coat Hot Springs
    Day 2: (daytrip into Fairyland) walk in creek, ascend 1000 ft, visit Coffeepot Hotspring, walk ridge descend 1000 ft into Fairyland, reverse route to return to Joseph's Coat (total of about 6 very difficult miles for Day 2)
    Day 3: same as Day 1 in reverse
    Day 4: this day is built in for a second attempt on Fairyland in the event we don't make it on Day 2 or as a day of rest in Joseph's Coat before hiking out.
    We attempted this hike twice last summer and were turned around a 1/4 mile from Fairyland by weather and other circumstances. This is a great hike for waterfall, hotspring and adventure lovers. Search Fairyland Geyser Basin in Google and youtube for more info on the hike and area.
    Please email me at adkierst@yahoo.com if you're interested!
