The Northern Rockies have a different flavor then the red sandstone of the southwest and national parks just waiting for photographers. Yellowstone, our oldest National Park is a wonderland for nature photographers. Opportunities abound for Photography from the side of the road or, for those more adventurous and able, back in wilderness areas. Wildlife can be seen from roadside and sometimes create traffic jams.

Just south is Grand Teton NP with windscreen-filling images of the youngest mountains in North America, the Grand Tetons. Wildlife is plentiful in both parks and fall colors are simply spectacular.

All the images here were taken less than 50 feet from the side of the road or at observation pull-offs.
