Lined with dense forest, this road is one of the most exciting roads to drive in the USA. Why? Because if you're headed north you're bound for Yellowstone, and if you're headed south you're aiming for Grand Teton National Park. Does it get any better than that? I didn't think so.
(Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife - don't be the guy who stops traffic because you hit a moose - no one, and I mean no one, likes that guy.)
This is the "main drag" entering Yellowstone from Moran in the south. The mountains and forests are breathtaking. The bears, moose, elk and other wildlife are easier to see than you might expect - if you take your time. This was our first exposure to magnificent Yellowstone and, if we hadn't seen anything else, this would have sold us on the park as one of our favorite destinations.
