“Excellent for wildlife viewing”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

This is an incredible place to watch for wildlife. The trick, of course is to have patience... pick a spot and stick with it and you will not be disappointed. May be tough for people traveling with small children or impatient spouses.

“A beautiful drive through the less crowded area of Yellowstone”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

The road through the northeast part of the park ending in Cooke City and the Beartooth highway is very beautiful. The wide open valleys offer great wildlife viewing and plenty of hiking possibilities.
There were also many fly fisherman testing the waters of the Lamar river. We took a bunch of photos but unfortunately no up-close wildlife on our drive.

“Wildlife”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

This one of the best places to see large wildlife. We were fortunate to see a bear and three cubs. Viewing across the valley is easy but it is a very popular place to visit. Places to park in the early morning and evening are limited due to the number of people. If you here local talk of a carcass being spotted then this is the place to be as bears and wolves may well visit this.Get there early to stake your claim, and make sure you have binoculars with you as animals can be distant from you.

We saw a sow grizzly and her 3 cubs. Bison everywhere. Pronghorn. A badger. Golden Eagle. Many other birds. Coyotes. Please do not bother the animals, they need their space.

Just incredible views, hundreds of bison, elk , pronghorn , picture book settings, less crowed than Hayden Valley, and some of the other areas of the park, lots of hikes of varying lengths to enjoy. A definite must if your in Yellowstone.
