4 days in Yellowstone and Grand Tetons

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be driving from Glacier NP to Yellowstone NP on Sep 8th. Staying the 1st night at Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel, 2nd night in a Canyon Lodge Frontier Cabin and 3rd night in a Lake Lodge pioneer cabin. He very much wants to see wildlife. Are there places we can drive to in the different areas at dawn and dusk to position ourselves to see wildlife? I realize 2 days is not much time to truly explore YNP. So I would appreciate suggestions to catch the highlights. From Mammoth to Canyon Village is it better to take the west or east side of the loop, or should we make the whole circle? Fireside Falls sounds fun - will it be warm enough to go for a dip? I love sunsets and waterfalls. I read Artist Point is a good place for sunset. A boat ride on the lake? Would like to try and get in a few short hikes.

On Sep 11th we're heading to Grand Tetons. So we probably have a half day more in YNP before leaving. Which are the best geysers to see in the time we have?

We're spending the night at Colter's Bay. Is it worth trying to get there in time to do an afternoon boat ride on the lake? Hoping the next day to hike to Jenny Lake before heading to Jackson Hole for the night. Does this sound like a good plan?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions, as I want to make the most of our short time. Would also like thoughts on where to eat in the parks?
