Leaving New York City for the summer? Explore and discover Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks with Wyoming native and outdoor photographer, Jim Laybourn, of Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Encounter and photograph the world's largest free roaming herds of elk and buffalo; watch moose, grizzly and black bear, in their natural habitat while you travel comfortably and learn amazing facts about animal behavior and tips for getting great photographs. Laybourn's knowledge of photography, the area, it's history and the amazingly abundant wildlife that inhabit Wyoming's National Parks, makes for an unforgettable experience.
