D09 Yellowstone NP Dubois
Published: 25/12/2019
Senic Overview Lunch Tree Hill
Dubois is an authentic western city located along the Wind River, surrounded by the Absaroka and Wind River Mountains. It is an area of striking contrasts, from the badlands to the high peaks. The area is home to the largest herd of bighorn sheep. Dubois offers a wide range of dining options. A walk along the main street, the majority still equipped with promenades, will take you back to Old West Wyoming.

We start the route again in Yellowstone National Park (NP), with its colored hot springs, sulfur fumes and geysers. Followed by the Teton National Forest, the Bridger-Teton is located in West Wyoming and offers more than 3.4 million acres of public land for your enjoyment in outdoor recreation. The Bridger-Teton National Forest consists of pristine river basins, an abundance of wildlife and immense wildlife lands. It consists largely of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem - the largest intact ecosystem. The park contains nearly 1.2 million acres of wilderness, more than 3,000 miles of roads and trails and thousands of miles of pristine rivers and streams, the Bridger-Teton offers something for everyone.
Then it goes through the Shoshone National Forrest. The Shoshone National Forest offers beautiful scenery and endless recreational opportunities! The Shoshone National Forest was reserved in 1891 as part of the Yellowstone Timberland Reserve, making the Shoshone the first national forest in the United States. It consists of approximately 2.4 million hectares of varied terrain, ranging from sagebrush flats to rugged mountains. The higher mountains are covered with snow most of the year. Immense areas of exposed rock are interspersed with meadows and forests. With Yellowstone National Park on the western border, the Shoshone covers the area from the Montana State Line in the south to Lander, Wyoming, and includes parts of the Absaroka, Wind River and Beartooth Mountains.

In this 4-star route you will drive along beautiful good roads, a stop at the Oxbow Bend Overlook and the Senic Overview over the Lunch Tree Hill is a must.

History:
The city of Dubois was founded in 1914. In the same year, Wyoming Tie and Timber Company opened woodworking activities here and eventually became the largest source of railroad ties in the country. The "tie hack" operations ended in 1949, after which Louisiana Pacific operated a sawmill in the city until 1988.

About this region
Montana ( (listen)) is a state in the Northwestern United States. It is bordered by the Canadian provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan to the north; Idaho to the west; North Dakota and South Dakota to the east; and Wyoming to the south. It is the fourth-largest state by area, the eighth-least populous state, and the third-least densely populated state. The western half of Montana contains numerous mountain ranges, while the eastern half is characterized by western prairie terrain and badlands, with more (albeit smaller) mountain ranges found throughout the state. In all, 77 named ranges are part of the Rocky Mountains. Montana has no official nickname and several unofficial ones, most notably "Big Sky Country", "The Treasure State", "Land of the Shining Mountains", and "The Last Best Place". The economy is primarily based on agriculture, including ranching and cereal grain farming. Other significant economic resources include oil, gas, coal, mining, and lumber. The health care, service, and government sectors also are significant to the state's economy. Montana's fastest-growing sector is tourism; nearly 13 million annual tourists visit Glacier National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Beartooth Highway, Flathead Lake, Big Sky Resort, and other attractions.
