Here we go, from all the advice received on here I've put togeter our itinerary. There will be 3 of us, myself, my wife and our toddler. Booked into Old Faithful Inn for the duration.
I know ideally we should divide up the stay, but having looked into it, and looked at distances, logistics etc I've decided for us it will be best to stay in one place.
We are travelling June / July.
So, comments please:
Day 1 Expect to arrive in Jackson Hole around 3pm, drive to OF
Day 2 Upper Geyser Basin, perhaps Geyser Hill in the morning, back to OF area for lunch, set out deeper into Upper Basin in the afternoon. Dinner OF Area
Day 3 - Midway and Lower Geyser Basin, Lunch, then drive to Norris Geyser Basin and spend afternoon here. I think Midway (Grand Prismatic etc) is a couple hours max? Then there are the various drives as you proceed north towards Norris.
Day 4 - West Thumb Area morning, mud volcanoes, lunch (maybe a lunch box), falls area in the afteroon. I was considering doing dinner in Grant or Lake areas this day but everyone says dont drive after dark. Not sure when sunset is this time of year.
Day 5 - Drive to Mammoth Hot Springs, spend day at Mammoth and drive back to OF in early evening
Day 6 - More Upper Geyser Basin (anything unable to do Day 1), after lunch, drive via GTNP to Jackson.
I've tried to really space things out so we can build in a slow pace / downtime with the little one.
All comments welcome, restaurant recommendations, places to stop / picnic, places that would be good to stop with the little one and let her run about a bit etc.
