The Yellowstone-Grand Teton Loop provides tourists with an amazing drive to explore a spectacular region of our country that includes two national parks and three national forests.
A departure from Victor, ID along Highway 33 will launch your opportunity to view and to photograph majestic waterfalls, geysers, melting pots, historic lodges, an assortment of wildlife, the peaks of the Grand Teton Mountains and exotic vistas near Jackson Hole.
As you meander through Ashton and on to Mesa Falls Scenic Byway and Island Park, take a moment to stop at the pull-outs and at the historical monument markers to savor the flavor and history of the Old West on this side of the Rocky Mountains.
West Yellowstone stimulates images of free-roaming herds of buffalo, wandering bears, and towering jets of water shooting up from the ground. Rising 13,000 feet skyward, the Grand Tetons are a masterpiece of nature, with shimmering lakes, thick forests, and mammoth peaks blanketed in snow for most of the year.
Connected by the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Memorial Parkway, the Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks compose a living and breathing wilderness that is evolving daily.
Be sure to pack your hiking boots, a camera and binoculars so you get out of your car to explore some of the world's most scenic and unique environment.
