Yellowstone was Lauren’s opportunity for legacy, adventure, and independence.

Introducing:

THE FINER THINGS CLUB

When word got out to the rest of her family about her unusual decision to work in a national park, Lauren was met with silence, hesitation, worry, and fear—emotions she made a point to avoid at all costs by doing what was “safe” and expected. 

The day Lauren entered Yellowstone, six months after her decision, she nearly drove into a 500-pound grizzly bear. It was mid-May, and she was cruising through the park, enamored by its natural beauty and aromatic pine, when she lost all cell service and almost mistook the dark rounded figure of a grizzly for a road sign.

The creature was seemingly unphased as she screeched to a halt with no more than twenty feet to spare. It was at that moment Lauren would, in fact, take this grizzly as a sign of what was to come over the next three months: strength, bravery, and the auspicious element of surprise.

The Finer Things Club is a story dedicated to those who recognize that adventure is a symbiotic blend of courage and vulnerability. Friendship, nature, and hard work would show her what it meant to be a part of the finer things in life.
