Getting more specific on our Teton/Yellowstone Escape

Jump to last reply

As of today, our plans look like this:

Fly to Jackson from New Orleans
Dates: Sept 15 - 23, 2006
Rent auto or small SUV in Jackson

Travel destinations so far:
Tetons
Yellowstone
Beartooth Parkway

Fly home from Jackson to New Orleans

Questions:

Any idea what good airfare prices might be? We're looking at about $390 each, New Orleans to Jackson round trip.

Now that we know specific dates, what kind of weather, activities, best lodging, etc., can we expect? Lodging is available in Yellowstone for these dates (or at least what is still open has some vacancies), just not sure how to plan itinerary, how many nights to spend where, etc. We'd like to do some hiking, animal watching, picnicing (like many have suggested), bathing in hot springs, and just enjoying the views. Any more suggestions for activities we should include at this time of year?

Is Jackson worth a night, or just go on towards the Tetons from the airport (we hope to arrive around noon)?

I am combing over your posts from past threads and the recent one I posted. We really need your suggestions with specific suggestions as we try to narrow this down and get reservations made ASAP.

We are thinking Jenny Lake Lodge is out unless they suddenly plan deep discounts for that timeframe. ;-) We don't mind spending as necessary, but there rates seem excessive (?). Do you think it's worth the splurge?

As always, thanks so much for your help! And God bless!
