Head to Yellowstone National Park's wild eastern neighbor, the Absaroka (Ab-sor-ka) Range, a vast wilderness region with some of the most remote territory in the Lower 48.
You will travel through broad river valleys surrounded by sheer glacier-carved cliffs, camp under towering conifers, and hike across alpine plateaus where the tallest plants are only a few inches high.
You will hone your fly-fishing cast, ford high mountain rivers, practice GPS and compass navigation, and learn how to camp and travel in bear country. Along with grizzlies, other wildlife you are likely to see include eagles, bighorn sheep, elk, moose, black bears, coyote, and recently reintroduced gray wolves.
If you're craving remote, rugged land filled with wildlife, this is your course.
