Yellowstone & GTNP itinerary help needed

Jump to last reply

We're planning a trip Aug. 31-Sept 9 to GTNP & Yellowstone -- or vice versa... We fly into SLC at 7:30PM on the 31st and plan to drive for a couple hours, spend the night on the road somewher cheap (advice?), and then make the rest of the trip in the morning. I'm debating whether to begin in the Tetons or in Yellowstone. Current thought is:
Sept 1 - arrive in GTNP. Spend time in Jackson? Stay at Signal Mtn Lodge? Coulter Bay? 3 nights. Leave for Yellowstone Sept 4
Sept 4 - 5 stay at Canyon Lodge cabins in Yellowstone
Sept 6 - 7 stay at Old Faithful Lodge cabins
Sept 8 overnight at SLC airport and leave early Sept 9

Budget cabins with no private bath are just fine with us. I'm traveling with my adult daughter, and we both enjoy hiking and lots of gorgeous nature.A friend who loves the outdoors says to spend more time in GTNP... We've never seen either park. I've read all the forum posts, and have used them to plan the above itinerary, but I'd really appreciate your thoughts.
