Will elevation cause breathing problems in Yellowstone? Yosemite?

Jump to last reply

We would like to plan a trip with my son's family to Yellowstone or to Yosemite. However, my son has a lung condition that makes higher altitudes very difficult for him. (We live in Tucson, which is less than 3,000 ft. elevation.) We're not concerned about hiking--just driving or riding a shuttle to see the sights and relaxing somewhere nearby.
Can you tell us of any experiences you may have had with altitude in either park, and if you have a recommendation?

Thanks.
