Route Suggestions: Salt Lake City to West Yellowstone, or Salt Lake City to Jackson/Teton Village?

Jump to last reply

I'm going into anticipation overload planning our vacation this fall (Sedona 9/26 - 10/3, Yellowstone/Tetons 10/3 - 10/12).

We're spending a week in Sedona, then flying into Salt Lake City for some time in Yellowstone/Grand Tetons. We already have 2 nights at the Alpenhof at Teton Village before heading up to our timeshare in West Yellowstone.

Trying to figure out routing -- we have 1 extra night to get back to Salt Lake City. Should we go from West Yellowstone back to SLC via east Idaho, or back thru YNP/GT for a final night?

Since we have an extra night, we'd like to make the most of it. Thinking that going back through Jackson would let us take a scenic mountainous route back down to SLC, but it may be a bit late in the year -- October 10-12. Or, is there something really not to be missed going down through Idaho -- such as lava beds, fossils, etc.?

DH is looking forward to the Tetons, but we'd also like to catch anything else remarkable. We have 1 night on the road back, and then our final night is a Priceline win at SLC Airport for departure on 10/12. Your thoughts?
