    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 if you're interested!
