Hello Yellowstone Friends,
We are leaving for our trip in just 7 days and I am attempting to narrow down our schedule and to not over plan, which for me is nothing short of a miracle.
Here is what I have so far. Any advice, comments, suggestions are always welcome.
I have listed questions along the way!
7/23 Arriving in Cody via highway 14, Thanks Teton Bill for this info!
7/23 and 7/24 in Cody-Dinner and Rodeo, Buffalo Bill Museum, etc.
7/25 leave for Yellowstone.
*Is there a place to stock up on picnic supplies in Cody?
*We are staying in Mammoth Hot Springs.
*Which is the best route as far as must see scenery-going into the East Entrance or entering via Chief Joseph Scenic Byway to the Northeast Entrance? What is the difference time wise between the two routes?
7/25 Arrive at Mammoth area for two nights 7/25 and 7/26
Horseback riding 7/25 from Mammoth 1 hour ride
If possible, Roosevelt Arch, it's iconic!
Leave 7/27 for Old Faithful-stop and explore Norris Geyser Basin and ARTIST Paint Pots
7/27 Dinner at Old Faithful Inn.
*What is the difference between the Artist paint pots and Fountain paint pots? Any benefits of one or the other?
Leave 7/29 for Grand Teton's/Jackson-Snake River Float Tour, Tram from Village
Stay at Alpenhof Lodge, Teton Village 7/29, 7/30, 8/1, checkout 8/2
*Have there been any recent BALD EAGLE sightings? I am hoping to see one soaring or nesting!
Thanks so much!
