Finding the Perfect Yellowstone Tour

Posted by Visit Bozeman on Sep 21, 2021 10:02:00 AM

 

Yellowstone National Park is pretty incredible no matter how you see it, but going with a tour can add a level of richness that can't be found on your own. Local guides have in-depth knowledge about the park's history, the wildlife you'll see and the science behind those natural features that look almost unreal. During many tours, you can spend less time driving and more time looking, or travel by a different vessel entirely (did someone say llamas?). Plus, many tours offer transportation to and from the park, which is a huge perk right now as rental cars are hard to come by.

The largest known Golden Eagle migration in the United States passes over the Bridger Mountain Range each September and October. In 1979, raptor enthusiast Fred Tilly discovered this incredible happening and spent the next four migratory seasons on Bridger Ridge counting the raptors. As a result, the site gained international recognition among raptor specialists as a central migratory flyway in the early 1980s. By 1991, Hawkwatch International, in partnership with the Custer Gallatin National Forest and Bridger Bowl Ski Area, established Bridger Bowl as one of sixteen Rocky Mountain raptor monitoring sites. At the time, more golden eagles had been documented here than any other site in the country. Today, the average count remains at 1,200-1,500 birds.
