"Did you see that wolf cross the road carrying a fox?" he gushed. We blinked at him, wondering what the Yellowstone National Park staff had slipped into his cornflakes that morning. "Right here," he insisted, pointing to a spot just behind the place where we'd stood, gawking at birds that suddenly seemed common, trivial even. "He just crossed right here with a fox in his mouth." He shook his head. "I can't believe you missed it." We couldn't believe it, either. That's Yellowstone, though: a veritable three-ring safari and special-effects razzle-dazzle where, no matter what you're taking in, there's something else you're missing. Glacier National Park, on the north end of Montana, is the same way. Winding along the Going-to-the-Sun Road, a traveler's head bobs from side to side like that of a spectator at a Wimbledon match, ogling mountain goats grazing on this hillside, then Bird Woman Falls tumbling graciously down that cliff, then the parade of snowcapped peaks constantly vying to eclipse one another. A herd of bison graze near the foot of Mount Holmes in Yellowstone National Park. MAP BY BILL TIPTON/COMPARTMAPS.COM D U N LO P M O T O R C Y C LET I R E S .
