Yellowstone/Grand Teton: Comments on my Itinerary Wanted

Jump to last reply

Hello all: I have tentatively drawn up the following itinerary for YS/GT, planned for August 2014 when I can be sure that the entire Beartooth Highway will be open in its entirety (originally wanted June 2014; understand the 2013 opening date for the highway in its entirety will be mid June). Any comments/suggestions would be most appreciated. I plan to call Xanterra soon to book in park lodging. Thanks in advance!
