I've heard some horror stories from some people who were recently at YNP about the traffic jams at the East entrance. We are spending our last 2 days of vacation at Colter Bay Village in the Grand Tetons (after spending 5 nights in YNP). We were planning on heading home to WI by going through YNP and out the East entrance and then taking I90 home. Based on the info about traffic due to construction at the East entrance and traffic on I90 because of tehe bike rally, I'm now considering taking I80 back. I hear it's a "boring" drive with little scenery but maybe it will be less stressful. Grand Tetons to Cheyenne, WY and then Cheyenne to Omaha, NE and then Omaha to WI.
Has anyone taken a similar drive? How was it?
Does anyone have feedback regarding their experience with delays exiting through the East of YNP?
Any recommendations of things to see in Cheyenne or around I80.
As always, your help is greatly appreciated.
