A friend and I heading to Helena for a business meeting on Monday and want to see some of YNP on Saturday, and then check out Bozman on Sunday. We arrive in Helena late on Friday and are planning on getting up early Saturday and driving from Helena to YNP. From what I have read on the forum, we should start at the North entrance, head straight for Old Faithful, then go to Canyon via middle portion of figure 8 (see both falls). After that we could head back West to General Store for late lunch/early dinner. Then head back to Helena. I know that this is a really short timeframe with a lot of driving, but we do not want to miss out on seeing as much of YNP as possible.
I could use some suggestions/advice on routes and travel times from the Best Western in Helena. Thank you.
