    Great photo
    Beautiful photo to commemorate the three days we spent exploring Yellowstone. Nice spring evening and sunset after a great dinner at Wonderland Cafe. Yellowstone was magnificent and staying in Gardiner was a great way to explore the northern parts of the park.

    Worth the Drive
    Worth the roughly 4 hour drive from Jackson Hole to visit. The history behind the arch makes this worth wild in itself. While visiting, take the time to walk around downtown Gardiner MT, as they have a lot of nice shops/food!

    Pretty cool to see
    It was really nice to see. The best part of it is when you walk through it as if you are leaving and see the plaques on it. Definitely worth the short walk. Go around lunch time and then head up to the Corral Restaurant for the best bison burger you will ever have. It is about 5-10 minutes from the North entrance. Watch out for the elk at night.

    Iconic and historic entrance
    Worth driving up to see. The iconic historic entrance and landmark. Road is curvy and switchbacked a lot coming out of the park and returning We were staying at Fishing Bridge so we got to see a lot of park on the way. Nice photo to add to the trip book. Lots of Elk around and At Gardiner for things you are not getting if you have been living in the park a couple weeks Gives perspective on how small vehicles and roads were when it was built and concept of one car at time only one way.

The Roosevelt Arch is a nice gateway to one of the most popular places in the U.S. The arch is well preserved. You are able to drive through the arch or bypass it. This is definitely a nice place to take pictures.

I love history and I can just imagine how pristine this area was when Yellowstone was made a National Park in 1872.

The arch is grandiose. You can drive thru or even better walk inside on either side of the wood covered doorways.

Located near the North (Gardiner) entrance with parking available for pictures. I would definitely make time to stop and see this treasure.

Thank you to President Roosevelt for having this prominent arch... welcoming visitors into Yellowstone National Park. The architecture is pretty cool. If you're out at the North park entrance, look for the arch.

O.K. it's just an arch or symbol or whatever you'd like to label it, but to me the amateur historian of our family it was a personal goal fulfilled to see the arch. President Theodore Roosevelt is a particular favorite of mine and to see where this great man stood and dedicated this wonderful park for all of us to enjoy was a humbling experience. My own experience was completed as we drove into the park from the arch and had to stop for a small herd of bighorn sheep crossing the road. Thank you Mr. Roosevelt...

We stopped here on our way to the Mammoth Springs. It is a very large arch at the entrance to the park. The kids enjoyed all of the elk in the area too!!!

This is at the North Entrance at Gardiner, MT. Great place to enter the park, as it is close to Mammoth Hot Springs.

This magnificent arch is your first welcome to Yellowstone National Park at the North entrance. It's a beautiful landmark - be sure to stop for pictures and just inside is the Yellowstone National Park sign as well.
