Re: Yellowstone Travel Tips?
We went a couple of years ago -- we flew in and out of Jackson Hole and worked our way north through Grand Teton NP and then Yellowstone. We stayed at Jenny Lake at Grand Teton and at the Lake Lodge in Yellowstone and then one night in Jackson Hole.
We loved everything about this trip and we've been to a number of National Parks. First, Jackson Hole is a really happening little town- my wife and I want to go back without the kids. We ate at an outdoor thai restaurant and there was a happy hour going on in the street next door.
Grand Teton - we took the raft trip down the river. Saw about a zillion eagles and other critters and got a number of great views of the mountains and glaciers. We also ate a couple of times at the diner restaurant at the Lodge, it was very good food for a National Park.
Yellowstone -- While most go to see Old Faithful, make sure you take plenty of time to hike around there and see all of the other geysers. I also liked the more northern places, especially the area of the park in the northwest corner.
Make sure you have a camera and take binoculars -- and if you are driving and see people by the side of the road looking at something in the distance, stop ad see what is going on. We saw a number of animals that way.
