A few miles outside of Bozeman is Hyalite Canyon. We drove up and did a few hikes. The area was beautiful and thankfully we didn't run into any bears or moose (the locals said the moose are meaner than the bears).

|the water was very clear and chilly|
We drove up the mountain from the reservoir and had a lot of good views along the way.
The first hike we did was up to the Grotto, which was along a river and through the river at one point (which was awesome).
|I look slightly pained here... I think the sun was bright|
The second hike we did was to Crescent Lake. Crescent Lake was a little lackluster, but the hike took us around a good chunk of the reservoir too.
