At Lamar Valley, mountain peaks gently rise from the distance and a small river flows at this picturesque spot inside Yellowstone National Park where wildlife abounds. Photographers bring their gear and wait for bears, wolves, elk, bison, and other wildlife to appear. You can fish along the river with a permit; anglers wrangle for cutthroat and rainbow trout here. To get the best out of this small gem in Yellowstone, take an organized wildlife excursion.

Algo asombroso si no lo has visto nunca. Si estás en Yellowstone no deberás perdértelo, pero no tengas prisa ya que en el parque los verás en innumerables ocasiones. Tendrás tiempo suficiente de hacer... more »Something amazing if you've never seen it before. If you are in Yellowstone you should not miss, but do not be in a hurry because in the park you will see them countless times. You'll have enough time to take pictures, that if you don't get too close, you don't know what their answer might be. Tremendous the breast that this animal can have and for me, impresses much more than the larger bull.
The eastern end of the valley is the most breath-taking in my opinion based on the towering peaks on either side of the road! Ensure you have a camera that can capture this wonderful geography! more »
This is the place to go to see some great wildlife. From coyote running in the road, to moose, wolves, bears, big horn sheep ect. One of my favorite destinations in the park.
OK, if you've travelled a long way to get here, THIS is why. NOT Old Faithfull. This is NOT Disney, an experience you can pay the fee and auto call the experience . You are on nature time. And if you invest the time and effort you WILL be rewarded. So go at dawn or at dusk. Bring food, drink and binoculars. Turn off your cell phones. BTW if u c a large group of cars pulled over, pull over carefully and guaranteed they are watching something amazing. Lucky you :)
