Hiking Trips

This Yellowstone experience has not only allowed us to learn about plant ecology and the importance of restoration, but has also given us the opportunity to explore the unique landscape and wildlife this area offers.

Hiking through the woods of Montana we’ve encountered several feet of snow, animal remains, and even a black bear (unfortunately no photo evidence).

One of the many incredible views during a hike near our lodge

The picture shows the depth the snow would reach in some locations and Luke holding bear mace, a necessary deterrent when hiking

An example of the animal remains we discovered throughout the hikes (this is the skull of a pronghorn)
