Yellowstone/Northeast Corner

I have been to Yellowstone four times now. Each time, I spent just one day exploring one part of the park. Money being the main issue. Staying either in the park or one of the surrounding towns can be rather exspensive. If you plan to spend several days there you will need to make lodging in the park at least a year in advance. It would also be advisable to make reservations in the outside area at least 5 to 6 months in advance.
This past fall when GiGi and I went we stayed in Cody Wyoming the night before. Since I don't like takeing the same route every time if I have an alternative, we went into the park on the northeast corner. I hadn't seen this part of Yellowstone on my previous trips. After seeing it, I would have to say that it is my favorite part of the park. A lot of wide open spaces with streams and wildlife in this area. There were also lots of people fishing the streams here. If you're a fisherman, this would be an area to focus on.
We went when most of the kids were in school. So the traffic was not near as heavy as the other times I visited. X.

  1. Stunning. Definitely on my list of places to visit. Thanks for the tip about the reservations though!

    And I know what you mean about this time of year being a mood-darkener. Lots of Vitamin D seems to be the only thing that half-works for me.

    Here's to the return of the sun!
