Push America Challenge: Yellowstone Adventure The Push America Challenge: Yellowstone Adventure is a great opportunity for you to participate in Push America's newest program focused on enabling athletes with disabilities to realize their full potential through sports. Join Push America and Wilderness Inquiry as we set out for Yellowstone National Park for a 6-day, fully inclusive pack and paddle trip. A team of 20, both with and without disabilities, will be working together to accomplish one goal. While we will be in remote locations, the message will be strong. We hope to push beyond the barriers of what is thought possible and change the way society views people with disabilities.
Discover the geysers, thermal pools, mountains, lakes, canyons, and other natural wonders that make Yellowstone National Park a world-renowned treasure. Set up base camp and explore Old Faithful, Dunraven Pass, and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, known for its famous waterfalls. Paddle and fish Yellowstone and Lewis Lake for cutthroat trout. Hike to Norris Geyser Basin, thought to be the hottest basin in Yellowstone, and enjoy countless other sites that most tourists don't even know exist during this fully inclusive and adaptive sports experience.
