The Tetons. Majestic, sawtooth mountains. Snowcaps above, incredible wildflowers and glacial lakes below. Truly spectacular. Yellowstone is different. One-of-a-kind. Geysers that really erupt on the hour. Turquoise hot springs with the pungent smell of sulfur. Waterfalls, wolves and bears. Buffalo and elk as common as tourists. It's even got its own Grand Canyon. And it's just as dramatic as the original. On this adventure, you'll hike, explore, bike, and river raft this incredible piece of Wyoming. But don't think for a second you'll be able to figure it out.
