Lamaar Valley was our favorite place in YNP. We had only planned 3 days in Lamaar, but found ourselves cancelling other plans to extend it or return for a day. If you love watching animals, this is the place. However, if you want to see more than bison & pronghorn, stop at the pullouts anytime you see someone with a scope. It almost always means there's a wolf somewhere. Talk to these people(most are happy to share their knowledge and even their scopes), learn the local names of the pullouts or locations, find where certain animals frequent and what time of day. If you only have a day to spend in Lamaar, consider booking a tour with Wolf Tracker Inc. It's a bit pricey ($480/day for up to 6 people), but it's a sure fire way to see a ton of animals in Lamaar. We saw about 15 different species of animals on our tour.
