Bison Bull, Lamar Valley

The Lamar Valley and Northeast Entrance boast none of the hydrothermal features for which Yellowstone is famous. Yet it is a mistake to snub this swath of Yellowstone National Park. Here are three reasons why. 1. The 29-mile (47 km) Northeast Entrance Road is the most scenic of Yellowstone's five access drives. 2. The Lamar River and Soda Butte Creek are top fly fishing waters. 3. Lamar Valley - a broad, u-shaped glacial valley - is the best place to watch wildlife in Yellowstone National Park. View bison, elk, pronghorn and mule deer. Spot grizzly, coyote, gray wolf, fox and even black bear. And if you're visit is well-timed, watch river otters play in Soda Butte Creek. Save for Alaska, there is no better place to view wildlife in the United States.
