Hi all! Ok, I really should know better than this, but I'm posting before reading too much, so if the answers to my questions are already common in the forums, save your breath - I'll find them. :>
The big picture is a 2 week driving trip from Vancouver, heading east out through southern BC, down through Waterton Glacier to Yellowstone for 4 or 5 days. The rest of the trip is pretty vague, but I'm thinking probably Grand Teton and Eastern Washington and hit the I-5 for the trip home somewhere between Portland and Seattle. We will have a tent trailer and I'm planning to bring our very small dog. I am aware of the dog policies in Yellowstone.
I thought I'd try to get started on just the Yellowstone part of the trip, as that is the main focus, and then nail down the rest of the details later. I'm also under the impression that I need to get going on my bookings for the NP as it fills up quickly.
A couple, front of mind questions as I start to put this together:
- I've had it recommended to me that we kennel the dog while we visit Yellowstone, but if we come in via Glacier and leave towards Grand Teton, then we have a logistics problem. Any suggestions for the best way to resolve this? Perhaps we have the dog with us for a couple of days, then head to the closest dog kennel and just kennel him while we visit the key attractions where dogs are not welcome. He's a very small dog - I call him our "bait dog" for a reason - so I do understand the risks of bringing him into the park.
Ok, I had another fairly specific question, which I've completely forgotten now. I hate that. Anyway, any information that might be helpful with relation to camping and campsites within Yellowstone, and also supplies - I find I need to shop almost every day when camping.
Thanks! I will do my own reading as well and promise to return better informed. :>
