An illustrated field journal is a nimble instrument where you can combine drawings, maps, commentary, and questions, enfolding the smallest of events into the largest of landscapes. As a beginner or a veteran journal keeper, you will learn a world of ways to bring your Yellowstone experiences to the page. You’ll use your journal both in active adventure and quiet absorption, exploring many tools and techniques. If you want to expand field journaling to the digital world, consider the optional iPad sketching session.
