As of now, our July 2012 trip has us with 4 days for YNP and 2 days for GTNP. We are considering adding 2 days to our trip so that we experience this scenic drive.
Our current itinerary has us leaving from Canyon Village and driving back to Jackson and then flying out in the AM.
What if we change it and instead leave the Canyon area and exit out the N.E. Entrance and take the Beartooth Byway to Red Lodge for the night. Maybe then to Cody for a night before heading on to Jackson to spend the night before flying out?
Do you think that is too chopped up and we should choose either Red Lodge or Cody but not both?
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
