I am planning for a 9 day trip to Yellowstone and Glacier NP in June end-July, with my wife and 6 month old son. My main objective is to enjoy the scenic drives, photography and see wildlife. And maybe 1/2 hikes
Below is my itinerary, a few milestones are yet to be planned/booked so would need your help.
Day 0 – 6/28, FRI Land at Bozeman, MT / Billings, MT and stay overnight at a nearby hotel
Day 1 – 6/29, SAT What all should I cover this day?. Staying overnight at Old Faithful Inn

Day 7 – 7/05, FRI “Going to the Sun Road”. Stay Overnight at “Rising Sun Motor Inn” on East Glacier
Day 8 – 7/06, SAT What all should I cover this day?. Stay Overnight at “Rising Sun Motor Inn” on East Glacier

Apart from the questions mentioned above, I have the following queries as well
1. Between Day 1 and Day 3, where and how do I fit Grand Teton National Park?
2. Which are the scenic routes that I should take during my entire 9 day trip?
3. I can only do a couple of short hikes/treks during my trip so which ones should I go for?
4. Any other Tips and Tricks to make our vacation more enjoyable ?
I truly understand that I will just be “touching” upon the places….. so still trying to make the best achievable and enjoyable plan !!
