Hazards?? Dunraven Pass between Tower and Canyon USED to be a narrow, twisting road with a sharp drop off on the southbound side, but they've tamed, straightened and widened the road, even put in sissy guardrails. I've been on every mile of every public road in YNP and that was the only spot that used to tighten my sphincter. BHMs can be hazards, especially at night. On the road between Mammoth and the Roosevelt Arch my family and I stopped to watch some big horn sheep on a cliff and one of them dislodged a boulder that took out a car's hood parked below it. Another time 80-95 mph winds caused over 800 trees to be blown onto the roads, we joined in moving them out of the roadway more than a dozen times to get from Old Faithful to Canyon. Over the decades I've been exploring YNP they've improved most all bad road sections, I'd be curious to know about hazards.
A great book about Yellowstone's real hazards is: 'Death in Yellowstone' I've developed some great campfire stories from that book.
