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!

Day 1 Arrive SLC; overnight stay Hotel Monaco
Day 2 SLC to Idaho; visit Antelope GSL SP; overnight stay in Lava Hot Springs
Day 3 Lava Hot Springs to West Entrance of YS (bite the bullet and go for this long ride); overnight stay-West YS? Madison? Old Faithful?
Day 4 Explore YS Lower Loop; overnight stay? Old Faithful?
Day 5 Explore YS Lower Loop, overnight stay? Old Faithful? Lake area?
Day 6 Explore YS Upper Loop, overnight stay? Mammoth?
Day 7 Explore YS Upper Loop, overnight stay? Canyon?
Day 8 Exit YS via NE entrance - Beartooth Route into Montana; overnight stay in Red Lodge
Day 9 Red Lodge to visit Cody - bite the bullet again for long ride to GT via east entrance to YS; overnight GT - Jenny Lake?
Day 10 Explore GT
Day 11 Explore GT
Day 12 Depart GT, visit Jackson, overnight in Pinedale
Day 13 Depart Pinedale to Rock Springs - explore Flaming Gorge Recreational Area (worth it or not? any other area of interest?) Overnight Rock Springs/Green River area?
