“awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

some of the wonders of the world are on this drive. the beauty and mountains would rival any mountains in the world. I really thought that the place would be packed with tourists, but we were able to drive on thru and avoid a lot of traffic jams. If you tried this drive in Europe or even CA or CO.......you'd just see cars and people everywhere. Again, where are the animals?

“May be the prettiest place on earth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

This is my third visit to the park and will certainly not be the last even though I live in New York. This drive is just one of the most spectacular drives you can take and it's usually interrupted with one form of wildlife or another. I can't say enough about doing this. You can understand why Ansel Adams photographed it.

“multiple sights to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

We drove the Loop drive several times last week and each time we experienced different sights. In orderto fully appreciate it you should be ever alert and ready to stop (quickly but safely). We saw some folks who failed to get completely off the road creating a safety hazard for everyone else. the great majority were courteous and ready to assist others in the spotting of wildlife.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Do the speed limit! Federal speeding tickets issued in the park and they are ON it! Stop at every pullout, do the Jenny Lake Loop, bring lots of batteries for your camera. Spectacular views esp at sunset.

“Be preparred to gawk and be amazed.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Beautiful scenery throughout and the wildlilfe appears unexpectadly so be advised to pay attention to the roadway at all times. There are many many designated pull offs to view the sights but sometimes others just slam on the brakes and stop where ever.
