My husband and I have planned a spur of the moment trip for GNP beginning next week - July 18. We got accomodations for our 5 nights there, all at different lodges so we will be all over the park, even into the Canadian side. Yes we have our passports, haha.
I would like people to respond to this who have very strong recommendations on where to go for wildlife sightings, scenic areas and general photo ops. My husband is a photo enthusiast and has a lot of different equip he will be bringing. We have no problem hiking in places to get photos as long as it isn't too dangerous. We love getting up early for photos and love driving to wherever we need to go to get them as well.
Also, if you can recommend places that you found you enjoyed for meals. We will have a cooler packed with snacks and lunches probably but it's always fun to hear of places to go. We are driving in from St Louis so a long drive and if anyone has recommendations on that route we would love that too.
Looking forward to the input. We did Yellowstone/Badlands/Keystone last year and most of our itinerary etc came from this Trip Advisor forum area. It works great.
