We want to view and hike in GTNP.
We need 3 night lodging, and then, off to Yellowstone where we will stay inside the park.
I don't know if we should stay near Jackson or try to stay inside GTNP?
The advantage of staying near Jackson is that we could rent something with a kitchen, but I don't want to waste time driving the same way to the park everyday if the entrance is too far?
Also, we've been strongly warned about bears. Is there a problem with having a cooler in your car to carry lunch each day?
