  • In Yellowstone National Park this is the place for wildlife viewing, especially in the winter. Wolves, bison, pronghorn, otters, eagles, waterfowl and throw in the occasional bear and you have an incredible experience. Of course the landscape is awe inspiring.
  • Amazing view. Saw pack of wolves after baby bison but adult bison kept them away. My family thought the way to and Lamar Valley was the best part of Yellowstone
