“The Chalet is very well located for seeing Yellowstone, and we drove in from the north and had to drive through West Yellowstone to get to the cabin. It was a very quick and easy drive to the national park and would be the perfect home base for exploring this national treasure. It’s also a quick trip from the Chalet to Big Sky, Montana and the Lewis and Clark Caverns (where we were the day we drove in).”

Osborne Sunrise. How many ranchers, fishermen, and passersby have crossed the Henry's Fork via the historic Osborne Bridge? It's a question that I ponder each time I walk through this gate. Island Park, Idaho. August 24, 2019.

Yellowstone National Park in the Winter?

YES! Yellowstone in the winter is gorgeous with it’s beautiful white blanket of snow. I was just reading the updated website at YNP.gov and found this beautiful video and shows all it’s amazing ness. Video and here is a link to see more about WINTER HOURS LINK

Winter is better in the forest

For some, the first sounds after a winter storm are the best remembered fresh in the morning. The quiet of the crisp morning. The glitter of light’s first rise glistening on the powdery white blanket. Crunch of the snow pressed with every step. The sound of the solo key turning on the ignition and then the perfect “hum” as the engine warms and gets ready for a beautiful scenic ride close to Yellowstone National Park and more amazing places hidden away waiting to be discovered too.

Bring your family and friends for an amazing time of fun in the forest. Sled, play and create some memories to last forever. VisitIslandParkIdaho
