Thank you all for your help thus far. This forum has been invaluable. Now I am getting down to the details and need HELP for an itinerary of things to do/see in the park. I would appreciate any feedback on specific things to do/see in YNP and GTNP. We are less than a month from leaving. I know that there are many posts on these topics but I can't seem to find so if you can also just link me to some, that would be great or provide comments. Family of 4 with 13 year old twin boys. I just don't have a good idea of how far and how long it will take to get to various different places.
Day 3 - driving into park from Cooke City, lodging in Gardiner; going to Roosevelt cook out this evening - What should we do during the day before Roosevelt cookout? WAs thinking it made sense to do the East side of the park but not sure how much ground can be covered before we have to get back to Roosevelt cookout.
Day 4 - Mammoth and ?? - staying in Gardiner
Day 5 - Fly fishing half day and lodging at Old Faithful Inn - what should we do after fly fishing on way to OFI?
Day 6 - Lodging at Signal Mtn Lodge in GTNP - activity/sites recommendations as we travel from OF to GTNP? Spend morning at geysers and then head south? Can you give specific things that are a must see?
We are so excited about this trip! We will be in 7 different places to stay so any recommendations on packing and keeping clothes in back of car without having to bring in suitcases every day would be great too! I am a mom and can figure this out but if anyone has any best tips, that would be great!!
Thanks in advance!
