Having been raised on National Geographic magazines, I have always been fascinated by the western landscape of America. Last Labor Day weekend, my husband and I could finally make a trip to Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park in northwestern Wyoming. We started our trip by flying into Salt Lake City, Utah, and then drove about five hours north to Jackson Hole in Wyoming. We first entered Yellowstone via the South Entrance in Wyoming and then drove over within the park to the North Entrance, which lies in Montana. The town in Montana (Gardiner) feels like a frontier town straight out of a Western flick. We stopped by for an early dinner and then left for the Lamar Valley in the park to spot buffalo (of which we saw plenty) and wolves (saw none).
