I'm looking into Yellowstone for a trip in 2008. I'd like to do lots of hiking. Questions:
1. Minimum time your recommend to enjoy the park and do some trails?
2. Best time of year for hiking?
3. I may combine Yellowstone with a week I already have scheduled in Sedona, AZ. Since I live in Hawaii making both into one trip to the mainland saves a lot in airfare. I would appreciate your suggestions on transportation choices between Yellowstone and Sedona. (Fly to/from or drive a nice route?) I've already done much of the area but missed Yellowstone, so could just fly if that works easily. But love the area so could drive it too.
4. Any sage advice about lodging there that's nice and you think good value?
5. Best sites and trails?
Thanks in advance for your help!
