As a summer seasonal park ranger in Yellowstone, I get asked a lot of questions, such as Where is the best place to take pictures?
Pretty much anywhere you look.

Have you ever felt like going for a bicycle ride on a paved mountain path? I know just how you feel.
Just up the road a piece from Grant Village, along the shores of the West Thumb of Yellowstone Lake, there lies a gravel bar that is perhaps a mile or so long. When folks these days learn that its name is the “Hard Road to Travel,” they often wonder if it had been constructed as a road. They inquire, Who would build a road out there in the lake? Why would anyone do that?
