Our family drove from La Jolla, Ca to Yellowstone Park and back. Definitely a long drive, but well worth it, in my opinion. Yellowstone does have a lot of traffic and it's not always easy to find parking, but is one of the unique places...More

Truly gorgeous with more than one viewing point. If you can handle the climb, truly worth seeing from all the different points. If you can't handle climbing than there are some great viewing areas off the parking areas of this beauty without the climbing.

We drove along this for miles... then visited in the Canyon on both sides. Simply gorgeous. Fall is the best time, for color of course but also less traffic.

Loved the View, as well as in whom I was with. It was so picturesque, even at this time of year when things are transitioning into Winter time, and things seem to quiet down a little bit.

There is so much to see and do. Saw old faithful go off. There were a bit of the park closed for the season as we were in just before the park closed for the snow season. We saw bison, moose, elk, and different birds....More
