There are so many exotic and impressive places around the world that we are often searching for the next undiscovered place. But we overlook the awe-inspiring places within our country. The United States has 58 national parks. Each varying and holding their own priceless experiences. A few we would recommend right away are Zion National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Moab Utah with Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, Grand Teton and Yosemite National Park.
The itinerary we are highlighting this month is natural habitat’s “Yellowstone: Adventure Under the Big Sky”. This is a small group journey limited to 14 travelers for 7 days. You are guided by naturalist experts through the vast variety of landscapes and are able to be close to wildlife without intruding.
“On this unique itinerary, experience the marvels of Yellowstone Country that inspired painter Thomas Moran and conservationist Teddy Roosevelt, who were moved by this striking landscape more than a century ago. The park’s volcanic geology is legendary, erupting with geysers, simmering paint pots and steaming mineral springs in psychedelic colors. A profusion of wildlife has entranced visitors since Yellowstone became the world’s first national park in 1872. Now, as then, wolves, grizzlies, elk, bison and bighorn sheep traverse open range and montane forest in the largest interaction of megafauna found in the contiguous United States. Search for them with expert naturalist guides, whose local knowledge and connections lead you to the best viewing spots off the standard routes. Nearby, the Grand Tetons rise in jagged spires above Jackson Hole, where moose roam and eagles soar over the Snake River. From the remote Lamar Valley to the solitude of Big Sky, come discover all the wild wonders of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.”*
