Life long memories made in Lamar Valley

Life long memories made in Lamar Valley - the wildlife, the valley, the mountains, the golden grass in Autumn. Absolutely beautiful and a must see.

Saw tons of bison in the fields and crossing the road. This was such an interesting area of Yellowstone. Get up really early to see lots of animals. We went all the way to the north-east entrance one morning. In one spot the temp had dropped to 33 degrees... in August!

We were driven via bus through the Lamar valley in the dead of winter. The was a large snowfall and we saw Bison, elk, coyotes and deer on the drive. Several small rivers run through the area and while it was too cold to get out and fish, they looked very inviting.

No visit to Yellowstone would be complete without a drive (or three) through Lamar valley. This is the home to so many different animals that you can hardly look without seeing one. When we visited, the valley was very active - sometimes very brutal. The wolf watchers were out daily watching the changing of the guard and the bison were... More

Loved driving along the road and seeing the expanse of the beautiful valley, and all the many many bison roaming - often, right along the road! Also saw big horn sheep, pronghorn, elk, and mule deer. Wonderful!

It was our second time visiting Lamar valley and it did not disappoint. On our first visit we only drove through the valley but this time we decided to take a hike to explore the area better. We hiked the Lamar river trail which is a 11km (6.8miles), it is a easy trail, mostly flat and it took us about... More

This is a great place to stop off at, and take some time to look around, remember to drive back and forth so you catch more wildlife

Saw an animal finding its lunch and many others along the valley. We took a private tour with a naturalist and learned so much more than we every would have about the valley and wildlife. We also saw much more than we would have on our own. Definitely worth spending some time, great place for Bison viewing.
