Thought I'd pull this question out onto another thread. My daughter (22 y.o.) and I are driving later this month from Denver to Seattle, and since it is last time making the drive (she graduated!) thought we'd spend a couple extra days and drive through Tetons and YNP.
We have a choice as to where to stay our first night: Jackson or Moran. (btw, the next day we're driving through the GTNP, ending up at OF Snow Lodge in YPN). I'm interested in opinions. I'm thinking she'd probably like to see Jackson--though we'll be tired and not up for a big night out, some nice options for dinner and breakfast are a plus. On the other hand, I understand Moran has lovely approach views of the Teton Range, and our views from Hatchet Lodge could be breathtaking. Is there a difference between the two drives? One longer? One more outstandingly scenic? Does Jackson have lovely mountain views, too? I'm waffling....so any help welcome!
