Visiting Yellowstone 5/4-5/10; staying in Pray, MT

My family (75 year old dad, hubby, two adult cousins) are staying at a great cabin in Pray, MT next week and plan to spend most of the week in Yellowstone. We are flying into Bozeman on Saturday and would like some input as to some "must-dos" in the area. We are planning to hit the big Museum of the Rockies before heading to Pray, but any other ideas for us to do sometime during the week when we aren't in Yellowstone?

Thanks,

Beth

Go to the train museum in Livingston, in the old station. Rent bikes in Livingston. Go to Chico Hot Springs. Go fishing with a guide for a day. Go river rafting near Gardiner. Go horseback riding.

You will have very long drives if you are planning to go to Canyon or Lake. Figure a non-drive or short drive day afterwards. It looks the same distance as Old Faithful but it takes a lot longer.

Three basic day trips. Knowing you have about an hour each way to Mammoth.

1) Old Faithful and Back. Geysers

2) Lamar Valley. Mammoth to NE entrance for wildlife viewing.

3) Canyon, Hayden Valley, Fishing Bridge (Mammoth-Norris-Canyon-Fishing Bridge). Roads scheduled to open May 3.
