Hike to Storm point in Yellowstone National park

From the trailhead, take the left fork to walk along Indian Pond and quickly into a timber forest. After 0.75 miles of hiking, you reach Storm Point, which is a point jutting out into Yellowstone Lake. Storm Point was living up to it's name when we took this hike, see the picture below.

Continue along the loop trail after storm point as the trail walks along the lake for 0.5 miles before turning back towards the road. The final 0.25 miles walks through a nice meadow and to the road, which you need to walk along to reach your car.
