August 25, 2016, is an exciting day for outdoor enthusiasts across America and our Yellowstone mountain guides in particular; this day marks the 100th birthday of the National Park Service. On this day one hundred years ago, President Woodrow Wilson signed The Act to Establish a National Park Service. This powerful turned over control and responsibility of America’s most cherished lands, waters, and even monuments over to a single organization to maintain for the public trust.

Today, the National Park Service oversees more than 400 national parks in America, all of which encompass millions upon millions of acres. The hard work put in to keep these areas safe and well maintained is paying off after 100 years of dedication. This August you and your family can reap the benefits of this commitment when you visit Yellowstone National Park and book a Scenic Safaris tour with one of our Yellowstone mountain guides.

Our Yellowstone mountain guides are the perfect leaders to direct your Grand Teton adventure. Wildlife is abundant during this tour that takes you into the wilds around Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
