The Trailside series is known for producing entertaining video programs with stunning scenery, but also with an instructional basis. This video follows a group of mixed-experience hikers on a backcountry showshoeing excursion in Yellowstone National Park. You will see the group pass grazing bison, steaming fumaroles, bubbling mud pots, and hike right up to the rim of the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. In the "Make Your Own Adventure" Trailside series, the facilitator explains up front how the group will decide what type of shared experience they will create - a leisurely camping adventure for the family, or an extreme backcountry experience. You will learn about preparing for terrain and extreme weather conditions; Gear; Different kinds of show shoes and how to select the right one for you; How to trouble-shoot when problems or accidents happen; How to pack and prepare food and other supplies; How to anticipate environmental and natural threats such as bears; and general survival skills.
