Nate Alcorn is a senior at Northern Arizona University studying journalism. Born and raised in Fort Collins, Colorado, the outdoors – and especially the National Parks – have always held a place in his heart. Growing up so close to the Rocky Mountains and later living close to the Grand Canyon, there has never been a shortage of opportunities. For Nate, Yellowstone National Park has always been a symbol of adventure. From frosty Tetons to the earth-shaking geysers, he has always been struck with awe of the beauty and mystery of this country.
