The John D. Rockefeller, Jr Memorial Parkway
Between Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, Wyoming

The John D. Rockefeller Jr Memorial Parkway is a strip of park service-managed land connecting Yellowstone and Grand Teton National parks. It honors Rockefeller's extraordinary efforts on behalf of the national park service, notably the Jackson Hole portion of Grand Teton, plus Acada, Virgin Islands, and Great moky Mountains.

There is a crowded dusty campground and lodge at Flagg Ranch on the Parkway. The Grassy Lake Road runs west through beautiful forests and meadows, and features fourteen free, first come-first served campsites, which unfortunately were closed due to federal budget problems when I passed through in 2013.
