Jack Swift, Paul Nordquist, Matt Rock, and David Brown share their story as they set out to explore beautiful Northwest Wyoming
May 26 2014
We had all just finished finals after our sophomore year of college and were eager for an adventure. So with the car packed to the brim, we left our hometown of Minneapolis at 5 pm and by 8:30 pm we had made it to our first campground in Fargo North Dakota.

There was plenty of wildlife to enjoy driving through Yellowstone National Park to our campground, but most common were the buffalo. After a full day of driving we arrived to the Madison campground in Yellowstone, we feasted on a smorgasbord meal and finally got some well-deserved rest.

In the morning, we were awoken to the sound strange grunts and growls. Groggy eyed and curious, David unzipped our tent to find a group of bison casually strolling though our campsite. Matt prepared us breakfast as we sat and watched the bison graze past us.
On the drive to Old Faithful, we saw some beautifully colored hot springs. Paul was hit with a facefull of sulfur-smelling steam coming off of the water. At around 11:30, we witnessed the famous Old Faithful blow steam a hundred feet in the air, a magnificent sight to see.
After a full day at the park, we came home to our campsite to relax on the stone beach.
After Matt and David called it a night, Paul and Jack went out onto the shores of the vast Jackson lake to shoot the dreamlike stars that you can only find in a place like this. We’ve never seen anything so beautiful.

The drive to our next destination, Jenny Lake, was flanked by the Tetons.
When we arrived to our campsite, Matt took a dip in 40 degree Jenny Lake. It was a bit frigid to say the least.

2,270 miles later we arrive back home in Minnesota. Exhausted, smelly, and sore, but thrilled by our Journey to Jackson.
