I thought I'd re-post here and in SD for any advice anyone out there can give me:
I think we've decided to re-visit YNP as it's been quite a few years and I don't think we ever made it to the Montana side (we came in through the GT and stayed at Old Faithful Lodge). Plus, it will be mid-June and from what I've read, Glacier can be a bit iffy still at that time of the year.
That being said, here's what I have so far, please let me know what you think: Day one (Thurs) - Billings, (arrive around 6:30 pm from LV).
Day two - Billings to Lake Yellowstone Lodge via Red Lodge and the Beartooth Highway.
Day three, at the Lake Lodge and explore more of YNP. (FRI/SAT)
Day four - Cody for the night (SUN), we end up here on a Sunday and from what I've read, there's no gun fight, are we going to miss something fun? should we just stay in YNP one night and then move on to Cody? Any suggestions are welcome.
Day five (Mon) - Cody - ???? suggestion for somewhere to stay 1/2 way so we may sightsee along the way.
Day six- eight (Tues-Thurs night) Mt. Rushmore/Badlands, etc. flight from RC leaves at 11:00 Fri. AM, where should we base for three nights (Keystone?).
Thanks again for any advice you can give me.
