You’re invited to discover the magic of the world’s first national park: Yellowstone! In the Northwest corner of Wyoming lies Yellowstone National Park, the oldest, largest and most popular National Park in the continental United States. Yellowstone is in the heart of the Rockies, a land of pine-clad mountains and broad, grassy valleys. The countryside is laced with lakes and streams of exquisite beauty. The wildlife such as Bison, Bears and moose are a must see! No visit to Yellowstone is complete without witnessing the Old Faithful Geyser! One of America’s greatest natural wonders. 

Itinerary

Day 1

Participants will meet out in front of CSUSB’s SRFC at 6am Sharp! We will have approximately 11 hour drive (~750miles) to our first destination: Bear lake state park it will be worth the drive once we are there! We will be camping in the state park for one night then heading to Grand Teton the following day!

Day 2

After a much needed rest from the previous travel day, we will rise and shine with a healthy breakfast and be on our way to our first adventure! We will drive to Colter Bay campground in Grand Teton for 2 nights! We will take a hike as recommended by the locals to get an even more extreme view of the Grand Tetons. Our night will end with a warm campfire and a nice dinner.

Day 3

Our third day begins with another delicious breakfast, and then we will explore the park a little more. Visit more hikes and go on beautiful scenic drives and lakes that reflect the amazing mountain range. We will be also visiting the Visitor Center to get more history on the park and to potentially become Junior Leaders with a badge!

Day 4

We will start our day with breakfast packing up our camp to drive north into our third destination: Yellowstone National Park. We will explore the many geothermal vents in what is called Geyser Country, one of which includes the infamous Old Faithful. After taking in all the geyser explosions and thermal pools we can imagine, our night will end in Bridge Bay Campground with another dinner and campfire.

Day 5

This day will be spent exploring the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone to get some of the best sights of the Yellowstone River and Yellowstone Falls! It will be truly spectacular. In the afternoon, we will drive to Lamar Valley for some wildlife sightings, including wild herds of Bison, elk, pronghorn, the occasional Bald Eagle, and if we are fortunate to view from afar, a wild grizzly bear or two and a pack of wolves.
