      The northeast entrance to Yellowstone National Park leads through Lamar Valley to Tower-Roosevelt, passing through an incredibly scenic landscape of rivers, creeks, mountains and forests. It was along here that wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone in 1995 and Lamar Valley remains one of the best places to spot these impressive predators, a number of packs have established territories along the valley. An abundance of prey also makes the Lamar Valley an attractive habitat for grizzly bears.

      If you go:
      The best time to spot wildlife is early morning or late afternoon. Lamar Valley is one of the less visited areas of the park and therefore quieter and more remote-feeling than many places.
