So if you’re ready to hit the road, then head for Wyoming with Travel Audios’ park-approved audio tour. They’ll guide you along the inner and outer loops of Teton Park Road while you enjoy unobstructed views of the Teton Range, and listen to an impressive group of local experts. Geologists will explain the exciting geological processes that created the park’s magnificent mountains, lakes, and meadows. You’ll be driving through open grasslands and will skirt dense forests, glacial lakes and marshy ponds - putting you in close proximity to a variety of birds and animals.

Wildlife biologists and naturalists will tell you fascinating stories about their observations and experiences with the park’s elk, moose, bear, bison, and coyotes. You’ll also hear from a park historian, who’ll paint a clear picture of the areas’ rich cultural history and bring to life the colorful characters who influenced the development of Grand Teton National Park.

Professionally narrated and filled with wonderful music and nature sounds, this 70-minute audio tour is as entertaining as it is educational. This tour also includes an introduction to Yellowstone National Park. But if you’d like a complete understanding of both parks, get Travel Audios’ tour of Yellowstone as well!

    "Sickening and Preachy"

    Some good information is presented, but the narrator sounds like she is addressing a class at nursery school. Her insipid cadence is so annoying and insulting that my family demanded we turn it off after only about ten minutes. (I listened to the rest via headphones so as not to bother them). The first half is a follow-the-route tour, while the second half is devoted to general information. This should be reversed. Most buyers (those who want to force themselves to get through the juvenile voicing) will want to hear the general information. Few are going to want to listen to the route tour, because few are going to be driving that particular direction (south to north). The good parts are the snippets of dialog spoken by the geologists and the naturalists. But if you detest audio directed at very young children, you can probably skip this purchase, and just pick up that information in books. At the end of the presentation, the kindergarten-teacher type narrator lays on the political invective. The writers probably THINK they are giving both sides of the story. After all, they have told us all the good things about keeping the planet as natural as possible. And now they tell us the bad things about letting humans do with property as they wish. Case made. Slam dunk! They end by asking "which side are you on?" With zero discussion of liberty or what creates the prosperity which Americans expect, naturally the writers expect their infantilized audience to eat up their argument without asking a single question. I would recommended not purchasing this audio unless you happen to have a family full of very small children and you are prepared to offer some counterpoint to the preachy part at the end.
