I would go over Togwotee Pass and take in the fabulous Southern Absaroka and Eastern Wind Rivers. I blelieve that with 200' Red Clay Badland Cliffs giving way to the largest Glaciers outside of Oregon that this is the most varied landscape of the Rocky Mountain West and unequiviocally the most underrated if not best of GYE Gateways. I'd then head for Riverton and then take Sand Draw Rim to Sweetwater Station. Take in one last great view of the Southern End of Greater Yellowstone on the Rim. Go to Saratoga, drive Snowy Range Scenic Byway to Laramie and then 287 to Fort Collins

Going south from Saratoga Colorado's Gore Range is awesome, especially if you have the vehicle to drive Williams Peak and take in the view.

Most scenic to me is to go from GTNP to Lander (stop for lunch at Gannett Grill for great hamburgers- best I've had) then head toward Rawlins/Saratoga and take the Snowy Range Scenic Byway to Laramie then on 287 to Fort Collins.

The most scenic would be to drive down to Steamboat Springs & then take the scenic Trail Ridge Rd through Rocky Mountain National Park to Estes Park, then to Denver.

If you have the time, that is.
