how long

Approx. how long willl it take us to drive, without stops (we will figure that part), from Old Faithful to Signal mountain lodge? Just trying to figure out what we'd be able to see along our way. We will only be there 1 night so we want to max what we will see by leaving OF early,and seeing whatever we can before checking in and when we leave the next day to go back to Yellowstone. (IT IS OUR FIRST VISIT) Thanks:)

Let's see, trying to back out the stops that we made....hmmmm. It was about 2.5 hours from the GT entrance at Moose to OFI, with a few stops. Adjusting for starting at Signal Mountain and backing out the stops we makde, perhaps a little over an hour to 1.5 hours. Keep in mind that some stops are beyond your control (the "animal jams").

It's around 65 miles from OF to Signal Mountain, so figure close to a couple of hours in the summer without stops.

1.5 hours ... 2 hours ... you're BOTH right. And some days could be a little quicker than that, and some days will take longer than that. Such is the nature of trying to figure out EXACTLY how long it takes from one point to another, it varies so much from day to day.

Bill, that's for sure. We drive to Cody several times each summer, sometimes with a horse trailer, and the crowds and traffic congestion in Yellowstone drive my wife crazy. We often will instead drive the long way around, through Thermopolis, even though it's 300 miles to Cody that way, because it's not that much more time, we like the scenery just as much, and that route gives us enough elbow room.
