Quote: An overview of the Yellowstone and all it's wonders. Nature is just a few feet away on any section of this drive. It truly is an amazing place. At the heart of Yellowstone's past, present and future lies volcanism. The magmatic heat powering ancient eruptions still powers the park's famous geysers, hot springs, fumaroles, and mud pots.

A nice quiet hotel in a great location right off HWY.89. Our room had a microwave and refrigator which gave us the option of being able to pack our lunches.

A nice hotel just a few blocks from the west entrance of Yellowstone National Park. The hotel has a pool and restaurant on the property. The room I had was large with a door to the back parking lot, which was great for those early morning or late evening arrivals back to the hotel.

This was a first-time experience Flyfishing so we chose to use a guide. Excellent idea. They provide everything and make learning fun and easy. We chose a 'one on one' session to get more personal instruction. He took us to a great place and had us 'catching and releasing' in no time.

A must is Grand Tetons Natl Park. This amazing place is reached from the southern entrance. Continue south to Jackson.

A drive to 'Craters of the Moon Natl. Park' is a wonderful experience. This park is something to see!

Another place to explore is Billings, MT. This city is reached from the northern entrance. Also you can visit Bozeman, MT., which is reached via the west entrance. On the way to Bozeman, you can explore the Big Sky ski area.

West Yellowstone is the western gateway into Yellowstone National Park. It is open year round, but only to snowmobiles during the winter months. West Yellowstone offers good restaurants, shops, flyfishing guides, tours, museums and even a bit of night life. There is a lot to do in every price level for the whole family. Local outfitters arrange horsebacking riding trips, rafting trips, snowmobile tours and stagecoach rides. Horseback riding, fishing, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing are just a few of the outdoor activities you will enjoy at this splendid resort area.
