Hello! I was hoping to get some input from seasoned travelers to these parts. Our plan is to arrive in GT around 8am on Sunday spend Sunday and Monday nights in GT, Get up early on Tuesaday and drive up to Yellowstone. Spend Tuesday and Wednesday nights in Yellowstone and leave the park in the afternoon/early evening on Thursday. I know from reading other posts that this is not nearly enough time to see everything, but its what we have and we don't expect to see everything.
I'm wondering how you think our time would be best spent? In GT our only must do's are a hike or two and renting a canoe on Jenny Lake. I'm more worried about getting the most out of Yellowstone because it's so much bigger and there is SO much to do. Yellowstone must do's would include seeing some wildlife (Lamar Valley?) and seeing the Grand Canyon. We are camping in the Grant campground. We're more interested in hikes than waiting for old faithful.
I appreciate advice you can offer. Would we be better off leaving GT Monday afternoon?
