An exceptionally diverse landscape and varied wildlife have made Yellowstone National Park one of America's most popular parks.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Mammoth Hot Springs, Lookout Point, Mystic Falls Trail, and other attractions you added. Visiting Old Faithful and Upper Falls of the Yellowstone River will get you outdoors. Step off the beaten path and head to Biscuit Basin and Artists’ Paintpots. The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Dragon's Mouth Springs, witness a stunning natural landmark at Sapphire Pool, look for all kinds of wild species at Elephant Back Mountain, and stroll through Bunsen Peak.

The peaks of Grand Teton National Park aren't the highest in the world, but they sit atop what might be nature's archetypes for mountains.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Cascade Canyon Trail, String Lake and Taggart Lake. Take a break from the city and head to 42-mile Scenic Loop Drive and Cascade Canyon. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Leigh Lake and Snake River Overlook. When in Grand Teton National Park, make a side trip to see Dubois Badlands in Dubois, approximately Dubois away. There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape of Amphitheater Lake, take in the views from Snake River Bridge, stroll through Jenny Lake Trail, and take in the dramatic natural features at Glacier View Turnout.
