I was lucky to be able to get reservations late and am now fine tuning the number of days staying in different areas of the park. Below are the reservations . We will be driving from Glacier National Park and will spend the first night in West Yellowstone.
I visited YS/GT 6 years ago and am excited to return. I love to take pictures so we stop for that.
I want to make sure I see the geysers and thermal areas, Grand Canyon of YS, other must sees and am MAINLY interested in WILDLIFE, bears especially, so that will include Hayden and Lamar Valley. We don't mind being busy and moving around.
Since I did not have the reservations until recently I did not put all the specifics together yet. I like to have a plan, but don't mind last minute deviations. I think I have a good mix of places and areas, but am not sure about the number of days in some places.
Suggestions on the itinerary and what to do and when are appreciated. Thanks!
Day 1 West Yellowstone- Will arrive late afternoon or early evening.
Day 2 Old Faithful
Day 3 Jackson Hole (Don't want to do a float trip or cookout again. Will not be there during the rodeo day.)
Day 4 Canyon (or Colter Bay)
Day 5 Canyon or Roosevelt
Day 6 Roosevelt
Day 7 Roosevelt
Day 8 Up early, Drive early to Bozeman for a 1:30 flight
