My secondary school aged daughter had such a lovely time with this national parks series. These have always been her favorite places to deeply connect to the rhythms of the planet.

Time with you is allowing her to explore her Nature Self in another way. She’s come away from “Yellowstone, and Other Stories!” with an enthusiasm she hasn’t had in quite a while.

In deep gratitude,

Hobie Hare’s years of guiding shine through as he takes us on an incredible journey to some of our most iconic national parks.

The breadth of his knowledge allows for a deep and comprehensive look at Yellowstone, the world’s first national park and heart of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, along with Glacier and Grand Canyon national parks.

Along the way, Hobie shares what types of wildlife we can expect to see, the human history of these areas, and how the parks’ geologic history shapes the landscapes we experience and enjoy today.

I especially appreciate Hobie’s sharing how to be a responsible visitor and a good steward of these iconic global resources.

I had the great fortune of visiting Yellowstone 25 years ago, but through “Yellowstone, and Other Stories!” I realized how much I missed it!

I so appreciated learning about different national parks’ geology and wildlife, plus some of Hobie’s intimate experiences with the landscape. It really brought these parks to life for me! This has been a wonderful respite that has inspired me to explore Yellowstone and other places again.
