The Beartooth Pass, at 10,947', is the closest entrance to Yellowstone's famous Lamar Valley and only accessible from Red Lodge Montana. The Beartooth All-American Road, is also referred to as “the most beautiful drive in America”, by late broadcasting legend Charles Kuralt.

Cooke City is at the Northeast entrance to Yellowstone National Park, and a stop on our Yellowstone tours. Surrounded by national forest, wilderness and Yellowstone National Park, the area is an outdoor recreationists dream.

Yellowstone’s Northeast entrance, close to the towns of Cooke City and Silver Gate, was constructed in 1935 in a rustic style that was becoming emblematic of national park architecture. In our humble opinion, the best Yellowstone Tours enter the park here and leave from Red Lodge Montana.

Lamar Valley is often called "America’s Serengeti" for its large and easy-to-see populations of large animals. We plan our Yellowstone tours to be here in the morning and evening - when the animals are active. Among Lamar Valley's most famous inhabitants are the Junction Butte and Lamar Canyon wolf packs. Other animals roaming the Lamar Valley include large herds of bison, pronghorn, badgers, grizzly bears, bald eagles, osprey, deer, and coyotes.
When William Henry Jackson and artist Thomas Moran shared their photographs and paintings with Congress of Tower Fall, among others, and they caused quite a stir.
The beauty of the landscape led Congress to create Yellowstone National Park, the country's and world's first national park, in 1872. Tower fall plunges a stunning 132 feet with unusual rock columns north that were created by lava flow that cracked as it cooled.

The awe inspiring Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River expresses the park's complex geologic history in dramatic colors and shapes. Puffs of steam mark hydrothermal features in the canyon's walls.
The Upper and Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River add to the grandeur of this unique natural treasure that draws people from all over the world.
The Upper Falls of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is neither as tall nor as popular as Lower Falls, but the 109' waterfall certainly merits a visit, as it is impressive in its own right. This falls was called the “upper falls” for the first time by members of the 1869 Folsom party who estimated its height at 115 feet.
Visitors to the Brink of the Upper Falls have throughout time found the power of the experience worthy of detailed description.
At 308' tall the Lower Falls is undoubtedly one of the parks most popular attractions and is a must-stop spot on all Yellowstone tours. We will visit the brink of the falls and view it from several stunning locations including Artist Point and Lookout Point.

Norris Geyser Basin is the hottest, oldest, and most dynamic of Yellowstone's thermal areas. We will explore the location of the world's tallest active geyser, colorful hot springs, and microscopic life in one of the most extreme environments on earth.
Mammoth Hot Springs are a must-see feature of Yellowstone mainly because they’re so different from other thermal areas in the park. This is largely because limestone is a relatively soft type of rock, allowing the travertine formations to grow much faster than other formations.
This is a beautiful, scenic, 6 mile one-way dirt road that takes us back into the woods and meadows of Blacktail Deer Plateau. We'll leave the paved road and the traffic and experience the solitude of the Yellowstone wilderness.
