Fall in Yellowstone Country

See Montana in Full Color

Not only do the sights of Yellowstone National Park change with the leaves and grasses turning every shade of yellow and red, but the sounds of the park change as well. Animals prepare for winter in a variety of ways, making the fall experience a more complete vibrant painting of life. There’s always plenty of room to breathe in Montana, but in the fall, there’s even a little more. Autumn in Yellowstone Country is pure gold. Brown trout are biting. Elk are bugling. Birds are migrating overhead. Hillsides are aflame with tamaracks and rivers are lined with the oranges and yellows of aspen and cottonwood trees. Evening sunlight filters through autumn’s hues. Fall is the time to take a scenic drive, fish a quiet river, bike or hike the park. It’s the time to see Montana in full color.

Take advantage of cooler temperatures and shoulder season prices, and discover our most vibrant season.
