The moment you've been patiently waiting for... UAC is heading to Wyoming to explore the incredible national parks of Yellowstone and Grand Teton for one whole week! Hiking, geysers, hot springs --- there are so many cool things to see and explore. 

After flying in to Salt Lake City, we'll hop in our rental cars and head south to our first destination --- Yellowstone! The next morning, we'll get up early and hit the ground running. We'll focus on the Southwest part of the park for day one with the first stop being Old Faithful. Then from there it's a short walk to Upper Geyser Basin which has tons of active geysers and hot springs. We'll spend the afternoon at Mystic Falls and Midway Geyer Basin which is home to Grand Prismatic Spring (largest hot spring in United States and third largest in the world).

Monday and Tuesday will be spent hiking through the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone. If we get up early enough, we may even be able to spot some wildlife along the trails.  We'll finish Tuesday off with a scenic drive along Beartooth Highway. 

Wednesday will be focused on South and Central portions of the park. The first place to explore will be West Thumb Geyser Basin. We'll head up to Lake Butte Overlook to get an amazing view of Yellowstone Lake. Afterwards, we'll explore the magnificent Grand Canyon of Yellowstone which has been touted as the most breathtaking sight within the whole national park. 

After four jam-packed days of exploration in Yellowstone, we'll head south to Jackson on Thursday and begin exploring all that Grand Teton National Park has to offer. We'll start at Windy Point Turnout which gives mesmerizing views of Grand Teton. From there, we'll go on a 3 mile hike to Taggart Lake. Along the way, we'll stop for a couple of waterfalls too down the trail. After a photo-op at Jenny Lake, we'll finish the day off at String Lake. 

Day 2 of Grand Teton will be focused on the northern side of the park. We'll get up early to reach Mountain View Turnout in time to enjoy the sunrise over the Teton Mountain range. Afterwards, we'll check out Jackson Point Overlook for awesome views of Jackson Lake. We'll spend the afternoon on a 3.5 mile hike to Christian Pond Lake. This trail also features a couple of other lakes. 

After a week full of exploration, we'll drive back to Salt Lake City to catch our flights back home. Join us as we explore two of the best national parks that our country has to offer!
