Trip Report Yellowstone/GTNP report

Jump to last reply

Thanks to all who helped us plan a great trip Sept 1-13. Maybe this can help someone else. Landed in Billings and waited more than an hour, with many others, for National Car Rental to clean cars. Car had a dent and a ping in the windshield. In the end that was helpful to distinguish our Nissan Versa from the many others we saw. Great meal in the bar at the Pollard Hotel in Red Lodge. Beartooth Highway not to be missed. Cody BB Museum was well worth the visit, and Sierra Trading Post also a success. Went to Cody's branch of the Rib and Chop House. Food was fabulous, but we were really rushed out of there (37 minutes from start to finish). That wrecked it for us.

At Yellowstone, loved Dunraven Lodge at Canyon. Great cellphone service at the general store in Canyon Village where a crowd gathered nightly. Best hike was Lookout Mountain. We did an all day horseback trip with Yellowstone Wilderness Outfitters and it was just too long. The 1/2 day trip does the more exciting and varied part of the journey, so opt for that one. Expensive. We followed it with a dip in the Boiling River - great.
Old Faithful Snow Lodge Western Cabin not good. Cabins sit in a dusty parking lot and the carpet in ours was really gross. Snow Lodge itself is gorgeous. Old Faithful Inn is magical - don't miss taking a tour if you cannot get a room in the Inn. We had a great meal in the bar at OFI where reservations are not needed.
