Summer is the time of abundance for all creatures. Wildlife abounds, trails and streams are open, and snowy peaks beckon. Float the Yellowstone River with a fly rod, hike the wide open valleys of Yellowstone National Park, ride horseback through the Montana wilderness. Whether you’re in the mood for adventure, or quieter pursuits, GCRR and surrounding areas offer plenty to choose from.
When fall comes around and the days begin to shorten, animals are on the move. Fall is a great time to take the binoculars into a quite meadow and pick out bugling elk, migrating eagles, and maybe a foraging bear. Water levels are low and the fishing is excellent. Wade a quick stream, or float the eddies of a bigger river. The trout are waiting. Fall is also an excellent time to visit Yellowstone National Park. Many of summer’s crowds have gone, and the emerging colors and crisp air will show you why this place became the world’s first national park.
