Hiking, Camping, Site Seeing, Wild Life, Hot Pots, Fishing

Many people who live an active our outdoor lifestyle have been to many places to climb, hike, camp, etc. Yellowstone National Park needs to be on every single persons bucket list. Sometimes you need to do the tourist thing and see the iconic sites for yourself. Yellowstone is massive and would impossible to put just one adventure for this site. Really you would need many adventures to see all the beauty there.

This adventure is about hitting up the geysers right off the road in West Yellowstone. They are worth a stop and a small hike. Enter in the west entrance and eventually make your way to old faithful. On your way you will likely see many hot pots and geysers along with herds of buffalo and Elk so have your cameras ready. Don't feed the animals and don't get too close to them either, they are WILD! Have fun and later make your way to other parts of the park.

My family and I drove this loop the first time we went to Yellowstone. It is truly amazing. It is one of the best drives I have been on.

It's the major loop through the park with lots of scenic stops along the way. Yellowstone is relatively flat so there are stretches of the road which are surrounded by trees with little visibility. 4-7 hour drive depending how often you stop.

A few friends and I road tripped around the Grand Loop and the Tetons for 9 Days, one of the most memorable trips of my life. This is a must for anyone if you have the time! Memories that last a lifetime!

The Grand Loop is a standard for Yellowstone. A great trip for a first-time trip in Yellowstone.

You certainly won't run out of photo ops in Yellowstone. It's almost overwhelming. Unless you've mastered mind control I'd take Jason's advice in the review below and try night photography. That's my next goal. There are way too many people out in the day that either obstruct your view or make everything else frustrating.

If you want to see Yellowstone and escape the crowds, head out for night photography amongst the geysers. It can be eerie to have popular places completely to yourself, but under a full moon you can still appreciate all the natural wonders. I advise carrying bear spray at all times as bison, bear, and other wildlife can be active at night.

I am a professional photographer/Film-maker based out of the beautiful state of Utah. I have always loved being able to create. From luxury furniture to adventure films. Creation is a huge passion of mine as well as the outdoors. Anytime I can't mix those two together, I am thrilled! You can find my work at ThreePeakFilms.com and in social media @threepeakfilms

Hike the Sugar Bowl Loop in Kings Canyon NP

Tulare County, California

First and foremost, to get to this trailhead you need to drive down a 2-mile, one lane dirt road that is quite steep.
