Drive through Lamar Valley to see herds of buffalo, not to mention tons of other wildlife such as foxes, bears, and elk. Be prepared to take your time and enjoy the panoramic scenery. Many travelers advise making the drive early in the morning for the most animal viewings.

We had an RV and decided to stop for lunch along the Lamar River overlooking the valley. It was beautiful! We had a piece of Yellowstone to ourselves! The buffalo were plentiful and fun to watch. After lunch we walked down to the river, but had to leave sooner than we'd intended when a pair of buffalo decided to come closer to check us out.

Beautiful vistas and lots of wildlife. Look for people pulled over. Some folks showed us wolves through their spotting scopes!

One of my favorite spots in Yellowstone - especially for wildlife viewing. Go at dawn or dusk. When I was there two years ago there were packs of wolves spotted in the early morning!

WOLVES. Two summers ago, we made it out here around 5 am. Found a group of people standing off the road, with giant scopes. They wait for the wolves to wake up and let you sneak a peak through a scope and see the wolves. Two years ago, we got to see the pups wake up and play before they moved on to another area. So amazing.

Incredibly beautiful! All types of wildlife can be seen here. We went in early June before the huge crowds so we could really take our time through all of Yellowstone.
