John Wesley Powell described the Grand Canyon as “the great unknown.” Today, as you peer into its chasm from almost any vantage point on the rim, it appears so enormous, so remote and severe, it seems that no one could ever know it. But the stunning views from the rim of Grand Canyon National Park are only the beginning of the story. This tour will tell you the rest!
Yellowstone is a land of extreme diversity. Nowhere else will you find wolves, bison, and grizzlies living among the largest concentration of hot springs and geysers in the world. The park’s 2.2 million acres is an incongruous landscape of bubbling hot, lunar-like geothermal features, lush green rolling meadowlands, snow covered mountain peaks, colorful canyons, waterfalls, lakes and untamed rivers. It is a park so large, so complex and so fascinating it seems fitting that it owns the title as our world’s first national park! Travel Audios’ park approved audio tour will help you understand what you are seeing and smelling! It is not a mile-by-mile guide; it can be listened to anywhere. It features an impressive group of knowledgeable Park Ranger geologists, biologists and naturalists who explain the geological processes that created the landscape and why this area in Wyoming is such a geothermal hot spot. They’ll tell you about their studies and observations of the park’s wildlife and their experience with massive forest fires.
Grand Teton National Park owes its spectacular scenery to earthquakes. Born of earthquakes and sculpted by ice, it’s an active and dynamic landscape. It boasts the youngest and steepest mountain range in the Rockies, contains some of the oldest rocks on earth, features glaciers, glacier-carved lakes, sagebrush flats, abundant and visible wildlife and a myriad of wildflowers.
"Well presented, informative, and entertaining!"

Rocky Mountain National Park’s Trail Ridge Road, famous for being the highest continuously paved highway in the United States, is an invigorating 40-mile drive. It takes you up and over the Rocky Mountains, linking the towns of Estes Park and Grand Lake. It offers spectacular views from exhilarating heights and fresh high-mountain air.
"Don't Drive the Trail Ridge Road Without It!"
Crater Lake National Park is a rare place of ineffable, distracting beauty. Its lake - Crater Lake - is remarkable. It is the deepest lake in the United States and the deepest volcanic lake in the world. The lake formed when Mount Mazama (one of the many ancient volcanic peaks that dot the landscape like a string of pearls stretching from British Columbia to Northern California) exploded in a violent eruption about 7,700 years ago.
