There are 5 entrances to the park and we have even taken each one of those to look at the views from each as you enter or leave. I would have to say that the most scenic drive into the park is the East entrance from Cody WY. The mountain views are breathtaking. The only downside is you have to drive through a section that was burnt in the 1988 fire. It is re-growing but very slowly.
The few areas we have not seen yet have been to crowded to get into on the day we were there, so we will keep trying to elbow our way into them to see them.
There are so many creeks and waterfalls scattered throughout the park. Mountain views and vistas as far as you can see. So with that I am just going to include photos of the many various areas of the park. Hopefully I can remember what they were.
Now we will be able start some hiking to get into the back country more. So enjoy the scenery.
