Wath A View

The whole place is just stunningly beautiful. The view of the river and the abundant wildlife made our strip well worthwhile.

We stopped at several places to take a look at the Yellowstone River. Amazing scenes and forces. Animals love the water of the river, that is for sure! :-)

Stopped at several places to see completely different and unassuming views of the River, from carving through gorge to flowing gently with family of elk.

Had a great time fly fishing in yellowstone. Had to get a special national park fishing licence. Show it at the gate and they will give you a current fishing rules book. There are some areas off limits and some fish also. Have fun

well worth driving to view this and take time to walk and explore - don't forget bear spray - you never know when you'll need it (like anywhere in the park)

The Yellowstone river runs through many states. Often it would flow just beside us, changing sides as did the states. It is beautiful in the late summer with the trees just beginning to turn to their fall colors.

This is something everyone should see. It is so clean and the area is so remote. It is a great place to view wildlife and to hike. We wished we could have stayed longer.

Watch out for Moose wading in the marsh and keep an eye out for other wildlife. Take your time to enjoy this beautiful river.

Actually visited in Sept. 2014 after a weather related trip to Glacier. As the World's first National Park, it has become my favorite to visit. The river is wild as the west. There are many places to shoot your photos, see splendid scenery and imagine what this looked like in 1872.
