Hi we are just beginning to plan our 2014 summer trip to Yellowstone. We will be arriving in SLC and depending upon our arrival time will spend our first night in Kemmerer. The reason for this is we want to spend the next day digging for fossils. The next day we will head up to the Park. We are senior citizens and really don't do very long or strenuous hikes. That being said: The plan looks like this: Day one in the park, Upper Geyser basin to see Old Faithful and walk the boardwalks. Lower Geyser Basin and do the Fountain Paint pot trail. Drive to Norris Geyser Basin, see the geysers there and walk some boardwalks. The dilemma is should we go the next stop on the loop which will be Mammoth or should we call it quits for the day in Norris. We are not on any kind of time constraints and want to really see the park.
Depending upon what we complete in the first day the second would look like this: start the day in either Norris or Mammoth, and then ??? any suggestions would be appreciated. We will be flying back out of SLC. Thanks for your input. Joyce
