The grandeur, the geysers, the flora and fauna. There's no mistaking Yellowstone,
America's oldest national park, and, according to many observers, still the best.
With more than 2 million acres of unspoiled natural beauty to behold, your
list of things to do will easily outpace your allotted vacation time. Among the most
- Visiting Old Faithful Geyser and some of the nearly 10,000 other geothermal
features within the park's boundaries
- Viewing the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone
- Spotting some of the more than 60 animal species, from endangered gray
wolves to black and grizzly bears to bison
- Or simply observing the golden-hued rock that inspired the park's name
No matter where you enter the park - Idaho from the west, Montana from the
north or Wyoming from the south - the drive alone is enough to make the trip worthwhile.
The Beartooth Highway from Red Lodge, however, is particularly spectacular and was
once called "the most beautiful drive in America" by a popular television news correspondent.
Once you enter the park's gates, paved roads allow easy access to many of
the park's main attractions, including the most popular geysers, picturesque waterfalls
Of course, the Rockies offer more than just one amazing national park. Grand
Teton National Park is Yellowstone's lesser known southern neighbor, but, in many
ways, it is just as impressive. Named after the largest mountain in the Teton Range,
Grand Teton rises swiftly from Jackson Hole and surrounding glacial lakes and offers
200 miles of hiking trails and more than 300 species of birds (bald eagle, osprey,
trumpeter swan, to name a few).
In Jackson Hole itself, guests are afforded access to a long list of outdoor
activities, fine dining and shopping.

attention on national television shows, and it's is a perennial winner of the annual

reviewers giving Couloir kudos.

pace. Or consider catching your evening meal on one of the many guided fishing trips

Find a new way to fish. Massive trout are yours for the taking in the areas around
Yellowstone and Grand Teton, and there's more than one way to get them from the rivers,
lakes and streams to your dinner plate. Ice fishing, fly fishing, trolling or floating
are just some of the possibilities.
Tour the backcountry by horseback (Yellowstone). Horseback rides (one and two hours)
