Wyoming Tips

  • Jackson
    • Million Dollar Cowboy Bar- has saddle bar stools and great Western decor :) I once saw Jeff Gordon there!
    • Great art shops and very cool antler arch in the main square
National Elk Refuge
National Elk Refuge
  • just outside of town, before you get to the Grand Tetons, look for National Elk Refuge. Lots of bison and elk, and mountain goats.
  • I remember Jenny Lake in the Grand Teton National Park being just gorgeous, but really anywhere in the park is breathtaking.
Bison in Yellowstone
Bison in Yellowstone
  • Yellowstone National Park
    • you gotta go see Old Faithful in the center of the park
    • and a must-see is the Mammoth Hot Springs by the north entrance - walk around the colorful hot springs (hold your nose!) and there are some nice short hikes up into the hills
    • as mentioned above, pop out into West Yellowstone to see the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center.
    • the drive along the north end of the park is usually less crowded (Mammoth Hot Springs toward Tower-Roosevelt and beyond). This is where we saw bison fighting on the road
    • Check out the Roosevelt arch at the north entrance (just outside Gardiner, MT)
    • Devil's Tower National Monument - close to South Dakota, about 30 minutes off I-90 at Sundance. I just love it there.
