“Beautiful”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

It was like no place I have ever travel, moose was grazing in the river. Just beautiful but a place that was not crowd at the time . A place where you wish you could visit each weekend because of the scenic view

“It is everywhere”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

If you take the drive from South Dakota towards West Yellowstone, the river meanders throughout your route in many places. It is gorgeous in the winter, patches of ice, snow and flowing river.

“Your experience will vary depending on time of the year”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

I'm sure during the summer, when all of the park is accessible, the river experience is much more spectacular. However, we visited during the winter when many areas and aspects of the park are absolutely spectacular. Unfortunately, since only a few parts of the river are accessible in winter, it was lost amongst the more accessible attractions.

“Yellowstone River”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Beautiful! Loved driving the Grand Loop Road along the river. It was so lovely we found it hard not to stop at every pullout to snap yet another photo! When you get to the area with the views of the upper and lower falls, be sure to take both North Rim Drive and South Rim Road. They both have places to stop and photograph the falls and, depending on the time of day, one may give you better photos than the other. There is a book (available on Amazon) titled "Photographing Yellowstone" that has some great tips on where and when to photograph what.

“Mighty River Leads to Mighty Falls”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

The only thing that was negative about this was the government shutdown. Public lands means government control. We did get to see the falls and travel along the Yellowstone River. The snow and cold made it especially nice and a great photo op.
