Very Nice drive, lots of beautiful scenery. Pay attention to the animal crossing signs, they are not kidding. 100's of deer early in the morning and late afternoon. Slow down they come across at any time.

Teddy Roosevelt said this was the "most scenic 52 miles in America"---beautiful vistas, unique rock formation and abundant wildlife. I strongly recommend the self-guided photographic tour book, "Cody to Yellowstone" before you go in either direction. It "highlights distances and navigates you to viewpoints" of...More
