As the Crow Flies

Regional Attractions

Is it the big sky, the wide-open spaces, the mountains, the people, the freedom? Could it be a combination of them all? Or, is it simply that in this extraordinary place a special spirit wells up in our hearts? Take your choice, your answer is as good as mine, and that’s probably the way it should be.

So don’t fret if the Yellowstone Experience defies description. Even those that know they’ve discovered it, find it hard to tack down with mere words. Ask a bunch of different people – a rancher, a fly-fisherman, a merchant, an old hand or a pilgrim – you’ll get a bunch of different answers. But whatever the Yellowstone Experience is, when you find it you’ll know.

“What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.”
