“One of the greatest drives in America”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

Having been to 45 states, I can say I've been to many of America's most beautiful places. This route is on the top of my list and has to be my favorite. Like the Teton Park Road, it is rarely mentioned as a great American drive but without question, it is one of the most scenic, tranquil drives you can ever take. Just be sure to take your time, you'll want to spend 4 or 5 hours absorbing the views.

“Take your time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

Spend as much time as you can out of the car, taking walks, seeing the wildlife. There are plenty of short walks for those who don't hike. Well worth it. Soak it in!
