We will fly from Des Moines to Salt Lake City, which will be the hub for this 7-Day/6-Night adventure, which includes 4-Nights of camping. This Wyoming Adventure will provide trekkers with an immersion experience in two of North America’s most iconic and wild destinations: Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park. During this journey, we will visit many of the iconic features such as the Old Faithful geyser, Grand Prismatic Spring, Mormon Row Historic District, Jenny Lake, and many others. A team of trained and experienced guides will provide all transportation, meals, trail guiding, and local expertise. Our outfitter will provide all the camping gear (tents, sleeping bags, pads, etc.). All of the meals will be prepared by our outfitters as well. Here is a quick snapshot of what this adventure will entail:
Day 1 – Fly to Salt Lake City
Day 2 – Travel from Salt Lake City to Yellowstone National Park, we will head into the park to see the striking colors of the Grand Prismatic Hot Spring!
Day 3 – The team will check out some of the best views Yellowstone has to offer. We will hike up Mt. Washburn, then venture to one of the park’s most stunning areas called the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. There will be options for hiking to several notable waterfalls as well.
Day 4 – A return to Yellowstone for a day filled with geothermal activity. We will start our morning hiking up to a beautiful waterfall and to a viewpoint of the Upper Geyser Basin, the largest concentration of geysers in the world and the home to one of the most famous – Old Faithful! We will hike through this area and hopefully get to see some of these geysers erupt (some that reach heights of 100-200 feet)!
Day 5 – We will head to the Jenny Lake area of Grand Teton National Park. Jenny Lake is a spectacular alpine lake that offers numerous trails that sit beneath the towering Teton Mountain Range. The group will hike a trail along the lakeshore before rising up to Inspiration Point and Cascade Canyon.
Day 6 – One more beautiful area will be on the itinerary before returning to Salt Lake City. The hike we plan to do explores the gorgeous Taggart Lake, which on clear days has a mirror effect that reflects the stunning mountains right on the water.
Day 7 – Fly back to Des Moines
