Need help on September trip from Yosemite to Jackson Hole

Jump to last reply

I need some advice planning a trip in September. It really has three segments. It is a 60th birthday trip. We will not be hiking, but can take short level walks. These would include to a waterfall or a main street shopping trip. Like scenic drives, museums, exploring both small and large towns, and eating in “local” places. Both of these meetings will have a lot of free time built into the schedules.

1. I have a meeting to attend in Yosemite N.P. from Monday September 12 to Friday September 16. We will be staying at the Tenaya Lodge. My wife and I plan to fly late Friday the 9th into Burbank. We will get a rental car at the airport. It seems that we could drive to the Bakersfield area and spend the night. I would like to spend Saturday and most of Sunday working my way towards Yosemite via Sequoia N.P. and Kings Canyon N.P. We have never been to these parks. I need advice about somewhere to stay Saturday night.
2. This is the main part of the trip. We will leave Yosemite on Friday 16th and will drive to Jackson Hole for another meeting. We have until the afternoon of the 25th to arrive in Jackson Hole at the Hotel Terra. Nine days of travel. Having never traveled this area I need help on a route and what is worth a side trip. We know we want to spend some time to see the Tahoe area and then drive to Yellowstone before going to Jackson Hole.
3. Scheduled to leave Jackson Hole on Friday morning and drive to Salt Lake City. We have never spent time in Salt Lake City and will not have much time as we plan to fly out Sunday.
Thanks for all of your help!!!
