Packing for Yellowstone

It’s officially 5 days until I leave for Yellowstone. Holy cow the last 2 months have flown by! This coming week is going to be pretty hectic: I have 2 days of finals left, a shopping day for all the things I haven’t bought, my graduation, and then the last few days of packing and spending time with my family.

Naturally, I’ve waited until the last minute to pack, so I though that organizing my thoughts and making a list would help out! Make sure you subscribe to my YouTube channel (just type in my name): Delaney Oertly, because I will be vlogging my entire trip there, and also while I am working at Yellowstone. I would say the vlogs will definitely be weekly if not more! If you guys have any suggestions of blog posts or videos you would like me to do comment below or comment on my instagram (@delaneyoertly).

Alright, after much deliberation and some tearful moments, here is my official packing list for Yellowstone NP! (I did it guys!?)

Just a few notes before we begin,

1.) Yellowstone is in the mountains and can have ranging temps, so I am essentially packing for all 4 seasons.

2.) This is my list for 4 months, not a vacation, so I have a lot of stuff because this will basically be my home for that time.
