Great idea #3

Slow down and watch for wildlife—Sometimes called the American Serengeti, YNP and GTNP are home to bison, elk, deer, moose, grizzly and black bear, wolves, mountain lion, wolverine, osprey, eagles, and a myriad of other small animals, too. Go early in the morning and keep your eyes peeled. Lamar and Hayden valleys in YNP are sure bets for bison. Moose frequent willowed bottomlands. Be careful, though, and never approach or feed wildlife. For great results, take a wildlife tour with qualified guides.
