The tour group streaming into one of Yellowstone National Park's spanking new Canyon Lodges appears wowed by the rustic-chic surroundings. There's a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace in the lobby, a handsome log-rail staircase, and airy, jewel-toned Mission-style guest rooms.

Wolves are more elusive in fall but sunrise wildlife watching trips will still give us a good chance of observing wolves in the wild.
