Yosemite Fire and Aviation Management plan to burn piles the week of Feb 6-10, 2023. https://www.nps.gov/yose/learn/news/pile-burning-planned-february-6-10-2023.htm
Whether you’re hoping to see massive herds of bison, soaring bald eagles or even an elusive wolf or grizzly bear, the Lamar Valley is one of the best places in Yellowstone National Park to see them. Take a tour with Silver Gate Guides to have a professional help you spot wildlife in this area known as America’s Serengeti.
Choose from a private full-day tour or a sunrise or sunset tour. Full-day tours start at first light and include a hike catered to your abilities for a better chance at catching sight of wildlife away from the park roads. Sunrise and sunset tours take advantage of the times of the day when wildlife is most active. Tours include food and beverages as well as binoculars and spotting scopes.

Tour guide Hunter Graham is a Yellowstone-area native. He’s a wildlife tracker and photographer in addition to being an expert guide. He’ll ensure you have an incredible experience with the best chances of spotting wildlife. You’ll also learn about the geology and history of the area.
Standard tours leave from Silver Gate, Mont., just outside of the park’s Northeast Entrance, positioning you perfectly for quick access to the Lamar Valley. The charming town of Silver Gate, which required log and rustic architecture in its original town covenants, is a great place to basecamp for your Yellowstone vacation. Silver Gate Guides is part of Silver Gate Lodging, making it convenient to find a great place to stay before and after your tour. Choose from a variety of cabins, motel rooms and even a house. If you’re staying in Gardiner, your guide can meet you at Tower Junction instead for an additional fee.
Silver Gate Guides suggests you leave your expectations at the park entrance and approach your tour with a sense of curiosity. While you might not always see a pack of wolves, it will certainly be a day full of experiences you won’t forget.
