Grand Teton National Park, the National Museum of Wildlife Art, and Jackson Hole.

Breakfast: Breakfast Buffet - Snow King

Morning: With six different summits topping 12,000 feet, the Tetons are a paradise for lovers of the outdoors. They have long been a favorite of photographers and sightseers. Make sure your trigger finger is ready to shoot some amazing photos of this majestic park. Visit Craig Thomas Discovery Visitor Center. The Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center emphasizes the interconnectedness of humans and nature in our shared past, in our present enjoyment of this natural resource, and in our duty to be responsible stewards of this magnificent ecosystem. Three main themes featuring people, place, and protection are explored through interpretive displays, such as the large relief model of the park that uses technology to demonstrate glacial movement and animal migration, touchable objects and artifacts, and a streaming in-floor video. Each area contributes its own valuable insight into the story of the Tetons and enables visitors to form connections with the park that will endure for years to come. Snuggled against the base of the Tetons lies String Lake, a serene and beautiful place to view mountain peaks reflecting in its glass-like waters. Take a stroll along the shoreline of String Lake through towering forests of pine and alder.

Lunch: Signal Mountain Lodge - on the shore of Jackson Lake.

Afternoon: Congressionally recognized, the National Museum of Wildlife Art focuses on wildlife and nature. This museum is unique among American art museums. The NMWA was founded to enrich and inspire international appreciation and knowledge of fine art. With a collection of over 5,000 catalogued works of art, the museum strives to strengthen humanity's relationship with nature through its collections, exhibitions, research, educational programs and publications. Situated on a dramatic cliff overlooking the Jackson National Elk Refuge, the National Museum of Wildlife Art appears to emerge from the earth like a natural outcropping of rock. The Museum's location provides a rare opportunity to view wildlife in its natural habitat, as does the artwork that pays tribute to it.

Breakfast: Breakfast Buffet - Snow King

Morning: On our way north to Yellowstone we'll stop at the Jackson Lake Lodge. Built on a grand scale this 1950's lodge has sixty-foot-high windows that frame the Teton range. As we begin our Yellowstone National Park exploration we'll first stop at the West Thumb Geyser Basin. Hydrothermal features are fragile rarities of nature. Yellowstone National Park preserves the largest collection of hydrothermal features on the planet. You'll have an unparalleled opportunity to view hot springs, geysers, mudpots, and fumaroles in a natural setting. Twin Geysers, the Abyss Pool, Black Pool, Lakeshore Geyser and Thumb Paint Pots are just a few of the amazing features you'll discover in the West Thumb caldera.

Lunch: Lunch - Lake Village Lodge

Afternoon: Keep your eyes sharpened on the grass prairies of Hayden Valley on our way to Canyon Village. Hayden Valley is a hot spot for four legged wild and wooly wildlife. At the north end of Hayden Valley you'll discover the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. The canyon formed after a huge volcanic eruption and subsequent lava flow. The soft rock was easily eroded by the Yellowstone River creating one of the most magical views in Yellowstone - the Lower Falls from Artist Point. Framed by the canyon walls the Yellowstone River thunders more than 308 ft over Lower Falls, creating a dynamic focal point. The canyon is also home to birds of prey such as bald eagles and osprey.

Dinner: Dinner - Canyon Village

Evening: After dinner you're encouraged to visit the Canyon Village Educational Center. A room-size relief map illustrates Yellowstone's volcanic activity, and a variety of interactive exhibits describe the formation of geysers, hot springs and other geologic features here and around the world. A giant lava lamp demonstrates how magma rises with heat convection. Murals, dioramas and panoramas show how glaciers and volcanic eruptions have shaped the landscape.

Morning: Explore some of the most rare and fragile hydrothermal formations in the world when you visit Midway Geyser Basin. It houses one of the largest springs, the Grand Prismatic Spring. The immensity of the spring can be witnessed by walking the boardwalk of Midway. For some, Old Faithful is the heart of Yellowstone. Old Faithful Geyser is neither the tallest nor the most frequently erupting geyser in Yellowstone, but it always provides a great show and is both highly accessible and predictable. Experience this textbook example of geyser activity along with the numerous other geysers surrounding Old Faithful.
