When many travelers think of Wyoming, they think only of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. But there's a whole lot more to see and do across the rest of Wyoming, too! We start out this episode by sharing our search for a place to camp by visiting Boulder Lake, Fremont Lake, Half Moon Lake, Soda Lake, Willow Lake and the Green River Lakes, before settling in at the High Line Trail RV Park in Boulder.
From there we explore Pinedale, its surroundings at the foot of the spectacular Wind River Mountains, and its unique importance to the discovery and exploration of the American West. We'll get a primer by visiting the Museum of the Mountain Man to learn more about the fur trade, Fort Bonneville, the Green River Rendezvous, explorers Benjamin Bonneville, Jim Beckwourth and Jim Bridger, and more, before heading out across the countryside in search of the sites that we learned about at the museum.

Welcome to Grand Adventure, a YouTube channel that focuses on RV-centric outdoor activities including not only of course camping, but also mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, skiing and more, always filmed in stunning 4K.
We're based in Salt Lake City, Utah, and invite you to come along as we travel all around the western U.S. My wife Patricia and I, and dog Zoe are avid boondockers, so you'll seldom find us in RV parks or even dry campgrounds. Instead, we're usually camped in some of the most remote and beautiful spots that you could ever pull a travel trailer into. And unlike most other RV channels on YouTube, we're not RV dealers or full-timers -- we're "long-timers" who tend to hit the road for weeks or months at a time, while maintaining a sticks-and-bricks home in Utah.
We'll provide beautiful travel videos, as well as some tips and insight on trip planning, and equipping and maintaining your RV to make your next adventure a grand one indeed! So, subscribe to make sure that you catch every episode, and remember...life is nothing but a Grand Adventure!
