The Buffalo Bill Scenic Byway Trail runs along the Absaroka Mountains near the Shoshone River with beautiful views of colorful cliff walls. The freeway is adjacent to the Buffalo Bill Reservoir in the Wapiti Valley, where panoramic views are visible with green meadows and the backsides on both sides.
Cody is a few miles north of Chief Joseph Scenic Byway, 47 miles crossing Shoshone National Forest from the Absaroka Mountains to the Clarks Fork Valley and ending at Beartooth Byway. After the Battle of the Great Hole in 1877, Chief Joseph fled to the East on his way from US ordnance to avoid being forced into a reserve.

Yellowstone is an important example of 1,000 years of complex geological history, where geysers, thermal pools, terraces, fosgaroles, and mud are still active geological features. However, the park is not just about what's going on underneath the land we go to, it's also about the park's immense beauty.
At the Heart of Yellowston is Grand Loop Road, which resembles a large figure of eight. We can find all the important loops around the loop road in the main loop or for a short walk, don't worry; there are five entrances to the park for the main loop.

The inspiring beauty of this canyon is that the Yellowstone River hangs in dramatic colors and shapes on the canyon walls and the top falls are 109 feet and the falls below 308 feet. With 45 falls and hundreds of unnamed falls Yellowstone makes for a great place for the quiet sound and beauty of the water along the cliffs and rocks. The beauty goes far beyond, as the warm mineral water and beauty of Mammoth Springs is found on its surface with colorful terraces or on the road that crosses the Golden Gate Bridge. In 1885, where 14,000 cubic meters of solid stone were thrown away from the cliff and by a horse and chariot. It is amazing from the perspective of the bridge cork coming out of the colorful cliff wall. The Yellowstone Mountains and Valleys route is full of surprises, and memories will last forever.
