kayaking and numerous photography opportunities. A road winds through the
park, but the best way to experience the park is to take one of its shorter trails.
No matter what brings you to Wyoming or what region you visit, save
some time for seeing the nearby sights. Each season holds its own
charm. The fall has beautiful leaves and interesting wildlife displays as
