I have our hotels and a chuck wagon booked and whitewater rafting booked. I have had the best luck on this site for help. Everyone is awesome! My kids are 12 and 14. Here is our plan.
Day 1:(JAC) Arrive at 3pm in Jackson. Check into hotel and then head to Chuckwagon meal to kick off our trip.
Day 2:(West Y) Grocery stop and head to West Yellowstone to see sights along the way before checking into our hotel there.
*not sure what to plan/not plan. I was thinking we have to stop and get park pass. Old Faithful...then? We should get to hotel by dark- 9:08 sunset. (I printed the sunrise/sunset times as suggested on this site)We will have to stop by Lewis lake as that is our last name! LOL
Day3:(West Y)9am Ranger program
Day5: (Canyon)head along beartooth pass and take time. Enjoy red lodge
Day6:(Red Lodge)head to cody. Do rodeo and fair in evening
Day8:(Cody)head to Jac thru yellowstone again
Day10:(JAC)whitewater trip in evening
Day11:(JAC) Airport AM
So we sorta have a plan. We dont want to get too crazy overbooking but would like to know what sites we should for sure visit along our way.
I have a list of top 10 I was going to just check them off as we see them...but dont want to take it so easy that we miss the good stuff-it will all be good since we have never been there.
Never hiked before but we are all willing and able to try. I would prefer easy shorter hikes to avoid winey kids! And up close bears!
Let me know if you have ideas. Also-temps seem warm. Would one set of cool clothes be enough? Anything else?
