After my first trip to the Greater Yellowstone area nearly a decade ago, I was hooked. The constantly changing landscape and incredible, abundant wildlife in Yellowstone and Grand Teton mean that there’s always something exciting to see and do. I love sharing the experiences and advice I’ve gathered over the years here, so think of me as your personal guide to the parks and gateway towns. I’m often just up the road in Montana, so that I can bring friends—and you—to the parks every chance I get. Award-winning photographer Jeff Vanuga, meanwhile, has shot the region for more than 20 years.      —Brian Kevin, author
