Planning a trip for August 2013. Plan to stay in West Yellowstone, 3 nights; Gardiner 3 nights; Cody, 2 nights, Jackson, 2 nights. Staying in park lodging won't work for us. Am also planning to take in Bear Tooth and Chief Joseph Highways.
Flying into and out of Salt Lake City. Plan to stay in Salt Lake City the night before flying out.
The question I am trying to figure out is which direction to go. Ideas I have are:
1. West Yellowstone, Gardiner, Cody, Jackson.
2. Cody, Gardiner, West Yellowstone, Jackson.
3. Jackson, Cody, Gardiner, West Yellowstone.
Anny suggestions/pros/cons appreciated.
