Itinerary for Montana/Wyoming, 14 days

Hey Friends -- I think we're scrapping the idea of staying in Bozeman for the first 6 days, so now my question is -- if you were flying into Bozeman and had fifteen days, how would you divide it between Glacier, Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. And is there somewhere else that I'm missing? Family of four, two boys, ages 9 and 14, will stay in hostels or camp mostly...

Not having been to Glacier, I can't comment on that. But between YNP and Teton, I'd spend more time in YNP. I loved Teton, but there is just so much more to see in YNP. We spent 3 nights in each place and could have used a couple more days in YNP.

1 day - travel day/stay in gt
2 days - grand tetons
6 days - yellowstone
6 days - glacier
1 day - travel to airport

Grand tetons: hike the cascade trail. Camp at signal mountain (best CG in opinion). Add a day if you want to go white water rafting or rock climbing.

Yellowstone: Could spend 2 weeks here but 5 or 6 days would be able to see most of the park & go on some nice hikes.
Glacier: Hikes/Travel to Canada. could also do some horseback riding.

You will have fun no matter how you break it up!!

Oops! I had 16 days instead of 14. Change yellowstone & glacier to 5 days each.

I agree with yahiker, 2 Grand Tetons, 5 each Yellowstone and Glacier with 2 days for traveling. Just keep in mind talking just one day to get from Yellowstone to Glaicer will be one long driving day and you might want to break up the driving.

Make sure you drive in or out on the Beartooth Highway one time. While at Glacier you might want to consider a trip to Waterton on the Canadian Side.

As a huge Teton fan, I would add at least a day there to the previous recommendations.
