We had such a great experience driving along Grand Loop and spotted bison and their calves crossing the road. Also, a wolf having a nice dinner, tearing apart a young deer.

Stop a lot. Walk out in the woods a bit... find a nice spot for a picnic and enjoy being away from the cars and crowds.

The Grand Loop Road takes you to multiple locations throughout YNP. Much of the driving is done on twisty and turny roads, yet some, are straight ahead and flat. Just be careful on the turns and don't cut corners or speed much more than the...More

This is not a destination, it is PART of the journey. This road is the connector to pretty much everything in Yellowstone. We have been here three times, and come in from different angles and always end up on this loop for a while. The...More

The Elks live there freely and maybe because it is their home, they are not afraid of people. That gave us a great opportunity to see their activities.

Take the Grand Loop Road with the stopovers. Check out the accomodations inside the park. West Yellowstone Village was very touristic for me... Spend a night at West Thumb and/or Canyon Village. Much depends on the weather... More
