Trip Report In Search of Crisp Fall Weather -- Yellowstone/Grand Tetons in September

Jump to last reply

I should first apologize for being late in posting my trip report. <insert standard whiny excuses here>

We started our vacation in Arizona, and this is the second half of our trip report. For anybody with time on their hands, here is the link to the beginning of this rambling epistle: http://www.fodors.com/community/united-states/september-in-sedona-tucson-and-other-hot-places.cfm


We caught an early morning flight from Phoenix to Salt Lake City on Friday morning, September 11. Since there were four of us (2 couples) traveling for 2-1/2 weeks, and in two very different climates, packing was an adventure. We each took 1 suitcase (25" variety) and planned to layer using some of the warm-weather clothes we used in Arizona.

Our fondest hope was for some chilly weather (living in Central Florida, we were sick sick sick of hot humid weather). Well, suffice it to say, our adventure in Montana and Wyoming was blessed with record-breaking heat... We ended up washing and wearing much the same clothing for the entire 2-1/2 weeks. #-o

The plan was to spend 10 days in the Yellowstone/Grand Teton area. We flew into Salt Lake City because we had Southwest tickets, and that's the best connection they had. I knew that the road in YNP was closed between Madison and Norris, yet our timeshare was in West Yellowstone. So... here's the route we took:

- Salt Lake City to Big Sky, Montana
- Big Sky to Gardiner
- Gardiner to West Yellowstone (5 nights)
- West Yellowstone to Moran, Wy
- Moran to Salt Lake City

**To be continued**
