Both Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks have guided tour options available that are as entertaining as they are informative. Halloween is a great time for nature photographers to capture the changing and colorful landscape in the parks while wildlife watching is sure to inspire too.
Stargazing Outings for Added Halloween Fun
Jackson Hole has a wonderful reputation as being a place with low-light pollution which is why the city is able to host free stargazing events year-round, including at Halloween! These gatherings are open to the public and hosted on Thursday evenings at the northwest corner of the Stilson parking lot off Highway 390 and 22. You don’t have to have any experience or your own gear to make the most of a stargazing event at the end of October.
