Hiking, Camping, Site Seeing, Wild Life, Hot Pots, Fishing

Many people who live an active our outdoor lifestyle have been to many places to climb, hike, camp, etc. Yellowstone National Park needs to be on every single persons bucket list. Sometimes you need to do the tourist thing and see the iconic sites for yourself. Yellowstone is massive and would impossible to put just one adventure for this site. Really you would need many adventures to see all the beauty there.

This adventure is about hitting up the geysers right off the road in West Yellowstone. They are worth a stop and a small hike. Enter in the west entrance and eventually make your way to old faithful. On your way you will likely see many hot pots and geysers along with herds of buffalo and Elk so have your cameras ready. Don't feed the animals and don't get too close to them either, they are WILD! Have fun and later make your way to other parts of the park.

Watch out for bison jams

This is a great drive one of the best in the US. Traffic here can get pretty heavy and when a bison jam happens it can take hours for them to move.

The highway to all the stops

This is the main highway through Yellowstone. Be warned though traffic jams are likely in the summer when wildlife are near the road.

Truly spectacular

I drove this with my mom, and we were both left speechless. We saw a herd of elk, a bear, and sooo many buffalo. Truly incredible. Please note that when wildlife is near the road, there are typically lots of cars stopped for photos. If you're going to stop, make sure you pull over safely and do not impede traffic. Also... stay in the car... don't try to get the pic with the wildlife :) Highly recommend this drive!
