Shoshone Lake Itinerary
|Monday||Arrive Teton High Adventure Base camp. Gear shakedown and orientation. |
|Tuesday||Depart for Yellowstone NP. Put in at Lewis Lake and paddle the Lewis Channel against a soft current. You will pull your canoe about the last mile up the channel when the current becomes to strong. Camp near the Shoshone Lake outlet. Approximate distance 8 miles.|
|Wednesday||Cross the Shoshone Lake narrows to your next campsite. Set up camp and then, paddle to the Shoshone Geyser Basin. As the largest backcountry geyser basin in Yellowstone, you can expect to see a plethora of geothermal features including the occasional eruption. Tread carefully here admiring the geology and soaking in the warm creek before returning to the campsite. Expect another 8+ mile day of paddling.|
|Thursday||A short 3-4 mile day of paddling back across the lake to camp near the outlet. Take advantage of this short paddling day by spending time fishing, swimming, or lounging in the hammock. Bring your favorite spices and feast on fresh fish grilled on the beach.|
|Friday ||Pack up early and navigate the Lewis River Channel back to Lewis Lake boat launch. Return to Teton HAB base camp. Relax at base camp or plan a visit to Jackson Hole in the evening.|
|Saturday ||Participate in the optional whitewater rafting trip if desired (additional fee). Depart for home.|
