Yellowstone National Park is a destination that belongs on just about everyone’s bucket list. The great thing about the Yellowstone experience (and neighboring Grand Teton National Park) is what awaits after you leave the park. One gem of particular shine is the town of Dubois, Wyoming. Located just 80 miles from the South Entrance to Yellowstone, Dubois is a great place to spend three days getting to know the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem after checking the park off your bucket list.

Since I turned 30, my days are literally speeding by. Rapidly. I find myself ingesting new information faster and at a higher rate than I stop to reflect on past experiences. When I travel, I notice myself stopping for a few quick photo ops and hurrying onto the next place. Over a luxurious 8 days though, I explored Utah’s Canyon Country in southeast Utah.

Tourists still flock to the Yosemite area to witness the breathtaking domes, sheer walls that reach sky-high, and waterfalls that drop to the valley floors. The combination of granite and gold make Tuolumne County one of the most interesting places to visit.

Sounds of elk bugling ricochet through the hills, and being able to witness the elk rut is a special event.

596 miles. That’s the distance between Paris and Berlin. 959 kilometers. Thats how many miles of trails you have when snowmobiling the Northern Continental Divide Trail on top of Togwotee Pass. Think of that; throttle wide open as you and your machine hurtle across some of the most vast, the most beautiful, the most wild country in the American West.
There is a certain way that the sun hits the snow just right. It’s the way it would hit a prism or a crystal. It shines over the blanket of whiteness and explodes, dazzles, flings itself into the air with wild abandon. This is winter in Dubois, Wyoming, up on Togwotee or Union Pass. Maybe it’s just you, maybe you brought along some friends. Either way you hear that crunch of the snow beneath your snowshoes. Or maybe there is only the sound of your skis as they glide through feet of fresh powder.
