This is a truly delightful drive! Beginning with the winding trek through the river valley of the Gallatin National Forest, the promise of sparkling rapids, the forested Spanish Peaks rising to meet the clear horizon of the Montana Big Sky, and probability of seeing wildlife make this a scenic drive that will not let your expectations down as you travel all the way to West Yellowstone.
