Should I drive from Seattle to Yellowstone in early June?

Jump to last reply

I'll be in Seattle on business next June, and I'm leaving from there for a trip to Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. I have booked my Yellowstone lodging starting on June 8, and I was planning to fly from Seattle to Jackson on that day. However, it now turns out that I'll be finished with business stuff in Seattle earlier than expected, in early afternoon on June 6. So now I need to decide what to do with the extra two days.

Options include:

(1) Stay in Seattle and check out the city a little more as a tourist.
(2) Extend my Yellowstone/Glacier trip a little bit by flying out there earlier.
(3) Instead of flying, rent my car two days earlier, and drive from Seattle to Yellowstone.

I have been to Yellowstone once before, but I've never been to Glacier. Nor have I ever been to Seattle, or any other part of the Pacific Northwest. In general I enjoy road trips, and I like to see places that are new to me by driving through them. But I don't know whether or not there's anything particularly interesting or unique to see on the way from Seattle to Yellowstone. Also, it occurs to me that there may still be a lot of snow around in early June, and some roads might be closed. So what should I do?
