Seven Corners Director of People and Culture, Annette Gobrogge and her husband took an unforgettable vacation to Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks. During a very long day, they saw amazing wildlife, beautiful scenery, and spectacular views.

After my husband and I visited our son in Salt Lake City,  we drove to Jackson Hole, Wyoming to take a road trip to Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park.  This is absolutely stunning countryside! The wildlife is unbelievable.  We saw bison, elk, moose, antelope, mule deer, and luckily no bears.   

Did you know Yellowstone is one of the world’s first national parks?  We started at the south entrance and made our way to  Old Faithful, where we explored for several hours.  We stopped at the Old Faithful Inn to have their famous Moose Tracks Ice Cream — it was amazing!  

From there we continued to the drive up to Mammoth Hot Springs, and then curved around through canyon village. We ended our very long day back out the south entrance.  We left Jackson Hole at 7 a.m. and returned home that night at 11 p.m.  I would highly recommend making reservations at one of the lodges inside Yellowstone to reduce the amount of driving. You will have to make these one year in advance though — it has become a popular destination! 


Old Faithful. Every 44 – 125 minutes this cone geyser erupts a cloud of boiling water.

The geyser and hot springs area was my favorite part of the park! Norris Geyser Basin is the hottest and most changeable thermal area in Yellowstone.  
We walked along the 2 ¼ miles of boardwalks and saw so many geysers and hot springs.  The colorful hot springs were simply amazing.

This was an elk just hanging out at the base of Mammoth Springs.  There were hundreds of people on the boardwalk all around him, but he wasn’t bothered by them at all.

We hiked down to the lower falls close to 5 p.m. and it was worth the difficult hike for this view!

This was a bison just walking along the side of the road in Hayden Valley.  The traffic on the roads was backed up for about 40 minutes as a herd of bison took their time to cross.

We had a great adventure and would highly recommend for anyone to explore Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks.
