Not sure if this is a good place to ask. We found ourselves with some extra vacation time and so we are now going to add a trip to Grand Teton NP and Yellowstone NP to our trip. We were originally just going to Durango and Ouray. Now we will be heading north between those two stops.
Does anyone have any thoughts on a route from Durango to Jackson Hole? We are traveling with kids and pulling a trailer so we want to break it up into 2 days. Don't want to camp -- will just be looking for a hotel that night. Mapquest puts me going through Monticello, Moab, and Provo and then heading north on 89 and 61. I'd love to take a different route back (from Bridge Bay CG in YNP to Ouray). Again, splitting the trip.
Any thoughts on interesting sights, a good place to spend the night, etc. are much appreciated.
