Heading to Yellowstone National Park in 2021? It’s your Gypsy Guide traveling buddy here to tell you about a major road construction project happening all this summer. Doing a little trip planning for Yellowstone now could save us the surprise of hours of extra driving later. The closure is on this section of the Grand Loop Drive that connects the Tower Fall area to Canyon Village. That just means we’ll be doing a little detouring via Norris Canyon Road, or backtracking on the Upper Loop. So for example, let’s say we’re at Fishing Bridge and planning to head to the beautiful Lamar Valley to see some wildlife. We’ll head across Norris Canyon and up the west side of the Grand Loop Drive. That Sure, in tourist season traffic, that adds a couple hours to get to Lamar Valley, so maybe you want to but if we plan it right, we can just take in Mammoth Hot Springs and everything else on that side of the park on the same day. Or if we’re staying in West Yellowstone and wanted to drive the Upper Loop, this year you can drive as far as Tower Fall and then will need to backtrack. One suggestion is to combine the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone into your Lower Loop Drive instead.
