p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Denver to Yellowstone area - best route stops


I am flying to Denver Wednesday thru Friday for meetings and then plan on visiting the Rocky Mountain National Park on Saturday and perhaps Sunday...

Then my current plan in to head for Grand Tetons/Yellowstone for the following week - anywhere on the route or nearby that I should add to my photography locations?

I have been to Jackson Hole/Grand Tetons/Yellowstone several times in the past several years and really like and enjoy the wildlife and landscape photography offered there...

Thought about heading more northeast and seeing the wild horses...
Thought about the Wind River Reservation area...

any other ideas?

Thanks in advance

Fossil Butte Nat. Monument.
Periodic Spring, east of Afton. A short hike up a lovely valley.
(The drive up 89 from Sage Junction area to Alpine is just lovely.)
Day hikes (longish) from Elkhart Park in the Wind River range. Jaw dropping scenery.

Rocky Mountain NP is an obvious "also worth a look!"

Try to route yourself over Chief Joseph Scenic Byway via Cody. If you're into the old west, overnight in Cody and visit the Buffalo Bill Museum, especially if you're into historic guns or Indian culture.

In addition to the route being beautiful, I've seen moose south of Cooke City every time I've entered the park from that direction.

Or enter Yellowstone from the Cody (east) entrance. A couple of miles inside the park, I've seen very nice bighorn sheep every time I've been there. The drive from there along Yellowstone Lake is nice. Last month I chanced upon a large great blue heron rookery along the Yellowstone River on the way to Canyon Village.

Where are you flying from after your trip? If you can, leave from the West Yellowstone exit and navigate to the two Mesa Falls in Idaho. The upper falls is really impressive, and the drive's scenic. You can continue from there to Driggs and back to Jackson, or work your way back to Hwy 20 and various cities in Idaho.
