We were looking forward to hiking Phelps Lake and jumping off the small cliff there but couldn't get a parking spot. We arrived at 1pm and there was a line of 4 cars waiting for hikers to return back to their cars to leave.

There is not much to say as this is a highway connecting the two parks. It is a pretty drive and we did see a coyote.

We found this parkway in Grand Teton much better to drive than those in Yellowstone. Fewer pot holes, slightly wider roadway and less traffic. Many turning-off points for things to see and places to hike. Very enjoyable for the 3 days we visited the park.

We had to pass through it from Grand Tetons to Yellowstone right after the wildfires. This is still a very beautiful road with many areas to stop and enjoy nature

Beautiful Scenic Drive with lots of possible wildlife sightings. Take your time and drive slow for best chances of wildlife sightings.
