With the upcoming National Park Service centennial, we visit America’s and the world’s first National Park: Yellowstone. Just north of the Grand Tetons in Wyoming, Yellowstone boasts incredible geology and wildlife.

But away from the usual Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic Springs, and Yellowstone Falls, there are stunning backcountry trails full of solitude and seclusion. Welcome to Season 3 of Adventure Archives.

    dam if you are going to pay to fish bring a real pole you could have had fresh fish to eat.

  2. naturequeenb👑🐝 on March 12, 2020 at 2:30 pm

    Excellent video 👍

  3. Tanya Kinney on March 12, 2020 at 2:31 pm

    I know this video is awhile ago, but it is so unbelievable that you spent thst many days out there without seeing a bear. I am much older than you are, 53 years old, but when we went to Yellowstone growing bears were everywhere. The campground we normally stayed in was closed down to too many grizzly attacks. We used to camp in a tent. Even now, thank God you were a little ignorant about the bears,especially the grizzlies and were kept safe. Other bears you can do certain things with, but there is no rhyme or reason to a grizzly. Other people that are experienced outsdoorsman might not have done what you did for a good reason. You have more chance of seeing a bear or grizzly in Yellowstone than anywhere in the U.S. besides Alaska and Canada.

    City boys . . . . .
    stopping to discus the manure piles and dont know the difference between elk, deer, bear, moose, and wolf dung piles, but are amazed. How you all survived with out being eaten was an act of God.
    Ate a whole bag of chips with a big cheesy smile on my face I was so engrossed . . . .
    You got TWO thumbs up from me ! fun adventure !!
    Next do "Sky Rim trail" in Yellowstone Park.

  9. Danielle Piper on March 12, 2020 at 2:41 pm

    beautiful video, but i pray drones aren’t being used! some of this footage looks quite hard to get without one

  10. Robert Wilson on March 12, 2020 at 2:41 pm

    Better have that. Bear spray

  11. femanvate on March 12, 2020 at 2:42 pm

  12. DigitalBamboo on March 12, 2020 at 2:43 pm

    Did you guys pet any bison while you were there?

  13. cischa pen on March 12, 2020 at 2:43 pm

  18. Irene Tivz on March 12, 2020 at 2:51 pm

  19. InfuriatedPanda on March 12, 2020 at 2:51 pm

    I know i’m years late, and this was probably covered, but i cringe every-time he used the blade to scrape the fire steel. thats what the back of the knife is for… lol

  20. Mike Dang on March 12, 2020 at 2:53 pm

  21. Alur Alur on March 12, 2020 at 2:54 pm

  22. Patricia Van Meekeren on March 12, 2020 at 2:56 pm

    Beautiful video. And nice guys too. Thanks for sharing your adventure and inspiring me to do the same.

  23. Sakib I. on March 12, 2020 at 2:56 pm

    Loved the ‘final fantasy’ esque original sounds

  25. hichaelmartline on March 12, 2020 at 3:01 pm

    The moments around 51-53ish are unreal.

  26. jimmy castro on March 12, 2020 at 3:06 pm

  29. TY Nature on March 12, 2020 at 3:07 pm

    Which national park would you say is your favorite??

  30. Jun Alcanites on March 12, 2020 at 3:09 pm

    What a coincidence I found your video. My daughter, her husband and couple of friends literally just got back from doing this same hike.

  31. Angela Cret on March 12, 2020 at 3:10 pm

    Awesome episode, the Yellowstone never ceases to amaze me.
    Andrew, keep up the cooking skills. No matter where you go, everybody loves the cook !

  32. Seth Base on March 12, 2020 at 3:12 pm

    Do any of you have experience with the Kelty Redwing 50 liter? I’m looking at getting back into backpacking, but I haven’t been in years (life wouldn’t allow it for a long time). I’m looking for something for 2-3 day trips.

  35. David Ben-Abraham on March 12, 2020 at 3:16 pm

    "Resident scatologist." I liked that. Plenty of "scat" (i.e. bovine feces) in that part of the country. The forest and light scene in 52:32 was especially nice to see.

  36. Ash on March 12, 2020 at 3:16 pm

    Why do they keep saying “yo bear”?

  37. archangeloftampa7 on March 12, 2020 at 3:16 pm

    This was awesome, the closing remarks on the park, this Country, priceless!

  38. Phill Hansen on March 12, 2020 at 3:17 pm

    One of you guys ought to invest in a collapsible or take down rod. I use a 3 piece take down on back country hunting trips, and while they need a bit of special attention to make sure you’re not busting off eyelets, they weigh next to nothing and are super handy with a small lightweight reel and a lure kit.

  39. Jeanne Smith on March 12, 2020 at 3:18 pm

    Wow, its so beautiful at night, I’m ready to go camping!

  40. Alpha C on March 12, 2020 at 3:18 pm

    Cool video. Was the yo bear to alert bears you were there?

  41. kamjobmail on March 12, 2020 at 3:19 pm

    tip: have more footage that covers the ambiance of the nature without background music and without narration. 10 minutes of moving the camera here and there (not stationary), in a relatively quiet natural scenic place, capturing whatever the forest or nature has, raw….

  42. Louise Hiker on March 12, 2020 at 3:21 pm

    All of your videos are great but this one was extra special. Thnx!

  43. Lisa Alexander on March 12, 2020 at 3:22 pm

    hurry up…i wanna see the park, the scenery, not your snacks or plane… lol…

  44. AstonMartinStig on March 12, 2020 at 3:23 pm

    As a fellow Asian male, I am confused. I thought we only explored the outdoors when it is inside an MMO.

  45. Animating With Chicken on March 12, 2020 at 3:25 pm

    Man I love the content and btw some of those links for planning trips such as the trailguideyellowstone is broken sad tho as I having trouble finding ways to see the Backcountry camp sites

  46. Matt Mielke on March 12, 2020 at 3:27 pm

    What is the absolute best thing to use as kindling (put sparks to) to start a fire? I’m horrible at it. Thanks

  47. Sandra S on March 12, 2020 at 3:27 pm

    Thank you so much for this episode. This was a place my late father called Heaven. I may never see with my own eyes, but you have blessed me with your view. All of your hikes are amazing and allow me insight to things I may have never seen without you all.

  48. Cameron Hankin on March 12, 2020 at 3:28 pm

    Camera specs? I’ve been wanting to get into documenting my wife and my hikes if we can. like how many batteries should I take. . . should I bring some sort of battery charger? How much extra gear should you bring as a photographer? And how Important is a tripod, aside from night shots.

  49. Pablo m on March 12, 2020 at 3:28 pm

    Never waste a morning!
