As of right now we are scheduled to fly into Bozeman on August 4th. We were originally scheduled to arrive at 12nn, but our flights keep getting changed by the airline. The last change they made had us arriving at 7pm. Well, that was for sure not going to work because they had us losing a whole half day! HA! We are now scheduled to arrive at 3pm, but we have 3 different flights to get there. Now, I am NO fan of flying, so that is a major disadvantage for me! My dear hubby loves to fly, so the extra take off and landing doesn't bother him at all. Now, the good part is the airline has offered to let us fly out on August 3rd at no additional charge, and we could arrive in Bozeman at 12nn.
We have reservations in Red Lodge for the 4th, but they do not have availability for the 3rd. Should I check for other hotels in Red Lodge, or would you suggest maybe staying in Bozeman on the 3rd?? I would love to visit the Montana Grizzly Encounter if time allows and if you all recommend it. OR should we maybe stay in Gardiner or try for Mammoth on the 3rd?
I personally get just giddy thinking of having that extra night!! My mind is just racing at all of the possibilities. This will be our first time flying into Bozeman, so we are not familiar with the driving times and routes to get from Bozeman to Yellowstone. We have flown into Jackson for our previous trips.
I'm sorry to ramble, but again I just can't help myself when it comes to trip planning for Yellowstone! Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. TA is by far the greatest place to glean information for trips. Thanks in advance!
Only 106 more days (or just maybe 105 days)! lol
