looking to come to WY and Yellowstone late July (possibly early aug - school holiday) . I have family of 4 me, wife, 18 and 16 yr old girls (who don't want to go to the beach!! and likely last vacation with the eldest!) I know the area is big but i have little awareness of travel times and how busy things get in summer.
i've looked at TA forum about YNP etc. and thought rough plan may be:
Day 1 - overnight Denver or nearby (after long flight)
Day 2 - travel to Cody (is this possible in one day?)
Day 3/4/5 - Cody area - mt rushmore (?)
Day 6 - travel to YNP (which area is best. aware that inside is likely to be fully booked)
Day 7/8/9 - activities at YNP
Day 10 - travel to teton NP (?) Jackson I assume (?)
Day 11/12/13 - activities at Teton/Jackson
Day 14 - to Denver for flight home
I don't really want to spend all my time travelling so does the above seem reasonable? don't know about other places like cheyenne, or which is best entrance for YNP.
I have read the other posts and am looking for activities to do and know I won't be able to fit everything in.
any advice gratefully received.
thanks in advance
