I think I've finally hashed out an itinerary for our YNP/GTNP vacation for this August which doesn't involve too much backtracking AND incorporates drives on both the Chief Joseph and Beartooth highways.

Aug 12-- arrive Jackson airport, pick up rental and drive to Lake Yellowstone Hotel for 3 nts.

Aug 15--depart early and exit E entrance to Cody for 1 nt. See Buffalo Bill museum and
do rodeo at nite. Spend a couple of more hours at BB museum in morning, then out
on CJH and BH to Cooke City.

Aug 16--Cooke City for 2 nites(?). Explore Lamar valley.

Aug 18--head to Canyon Village or Old Faithful area for 3 nights

Aug 21--Jackson Lake Lodge for 3 nights

Aug 24-- Fly home from Jackson

Does this sound like a reasonable plan? We plan to do short hikes, search for wildlife and basically introduce our 13 y/o daughter to this great part of our beautiful country.

We do have the possibility of adding 1 or 2 more days to our travel plans.

Thanks, everyone, for your input!!
Lori
