About the tour

Join Ashea, a 25 year veteran Yellowstone guide, as we meander along the edge of one of the most impressive views in the world, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone! Learn how volcanism, fault lines, a massive river, thermal features and monstrous ice walls intersected to create the wildly colorful palette we see today. Journey deep into Yellowstone on this fun, informative tour, and hear how art changed the world, creating the world’s first national park. You’ll also learn how an ancient geyser basin allowed the Yellowstone River to create a giant waterfall spilling over 300 feet (94 meters), all while connecting with participants from around the world! Experience the Canyon from wherever you are in this kid-friendly, interactive look at one of Earth’s most spectacular sights!


Meet your local guide

Ashea

Ashea has spent twenty-five years exploring and sharing the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, helping people connect to a wild landscape and to themselves. She has led all ages and interests through Yellowstone including children’s programming, driving snow coaches, skiing and hiking deep into the backcountry, geyser gazing and road-based wildlife watching. She lives 100 yards from Yellowstone National Park’s boundary with her ecologist husband, where they own an ecological consulting business and small educational guiding company. Immersing in Yellowstone and the surrounding public lands with their daughter on skis and foot is where they find nourishment. She is excited to partner with Virtualtrips to share her home landscape with the world in this unique way!

Ashea has been guiding since Sep 1998

Excellent and well informed guide! She was able to provide great videos of the Yellowstone canyon and educational information at the same time in a short amount of time. She answered questions comprehensively and gave information in a manner that was easy to understand, including children who were watching. I higher recommend Ashea for another Yellowstone experience!

Very informative - love how she uses visual aids (the egg!) to teach us about geology! Makes the subject very accessible - and not just for the kids on the tour :-)
