Scenic Views In and Around Yellowstone

There are also a number of pullouts where you can stop and see spectacular places like this one for the Kepler Cascades.

In my mind, though, some of the prettiest scenery was actually outside the park heading east on Togwotee Pass, though I suspect it might actually have looked back on parts of Yellowstone.

I ended up driving much of the way to Laramie in the dark, but I did enjoy scenery like this along the Wind River.
