Yellowstone Lake

Located at a height of 7,773 ft, Yellowstone Lake is the largest high elevation lake in North America. It freezes over completely every winter and the water temperature remains very low even in the summer, ceratinly too low for swimming. It has the largest population of cutthroat trout in North America, which itself is puzzling, since cutthroat trout is a Pacific Ocean species. Therefore, it is speculated that Yellowstone Lake once drained to the Pacific Ocean via Outlet Canyon and the Snake River, and that fish swam across the Continental Divide at Two Ocean Pass. The lake currently drains north from its only outlet, the Yellowstone River, at Fishing Bridge. There are many hiking trails that lead to the shores of the lake, but the lake is best explored by boat or kayak. Guided boat tours, and boat and kayak rentals are offered in the area.
