    • Vacation idea: Yellowstone/Badlands/Black Hill/Crow Fair

      Yellowstone National Park Mar 22, 2014 at 11:20 PM

      Dear all,
      I hope you can help me with my quest!
      My elder parents are visiting me from Europe and we would love to go and see the wonders of Native American lands and landscapes.
      We are looking for tour operators that offer fully escorted tours of
      yellowstone
      badlands
      black hills
      (Mt Rushmore would be great to see if possible)
      and if possible, it would be awesome to see the Crow Fair Parade in August.
      All the tours I saw are either drive by yourself or on chinese buses (I have experience with them and they rush you all the way and don't let you enjoy more than 1 hour in each place).
      It would be amazing if we could lodge in a cabin in Yellowstone for a more relaxing take on the tour.
      We would stay about 7 maximum 8 days, leaving from New York probably in August or September.
      Do you know of any reputable company or tour that treats this route? Is it so unusual? I havn't been able to find anything including the above mentioned.
      Thanks for any help you will give me!

      I am presently organizing a motorcoach trip to Wyoming in the spring, including Teton NP.Since this is primarily a group of senior citizens, hiking and other physical activities will not be attempted. Tough question but approximately what would be the time required to see the park and to stop at those places to photo or visit. Thanks for any help

      1 day itinerary ok?

      by sheisaeval Online Now May 29, 2010 at 10:24 AM

      Still deciding if we should spend one or two full days at Grand Teton.

      Here's my potential 1 day itinerary:

      menors ferry historic district

      jenny lake scenic drive

      cascade canyon trail (take shuttle boat)

      signal mountain summit road

      oxbow bend

      cunningham cabin

      antelope flats

      Should we break it into two days? Or are we missing something we must do in grand teton? Any recommendations? Thanks!

      This will be in mid August

      Visitor's Center Locations

      by grandmaR Online Now Dec 10, 2009 at 1:39 PM

      My family visited this area including Yellowstone in 1948. We were driving our own car.

      I'm going back again in June 2010 to Yellowstone. My daughter and her family flew into Jackson Hole and rented a car, drove through Grand Teton to Yellowstone and then went to the Black Hills and Montana and went home from there. But not only is it much more expensive to fly into and out of diffeent aiports and to rent a car one way, but I don't want to do that much driving. So I'm flying into West Yellowstone and renting a car and visiting Yellowstone from there.

      I would like to pay a quick visit to the Grand Teton Visitor's Center to get my National Park Passport booklet stamped. Can I do this from West Yellowstone without driving too far? I have been unable to figure out just where the Visito's Ceneters are.

    • Things to do here in 2 of hours ?

      by MissingLosAngeles Online Now Jun 26, 2009 at 2:22 PM

      We will be passing through the Grand Tetons on our way to YNP. We are leaving Jackson Hole airport around 2:30 PM and would like to reach YNP before dark. So I guess we can spend a couple of hours in the GT. Is there anything we can do / see in that time frame? We are interested in wild life viewing / photographing the scenery.

      Thanks!

    • Teton Crest in July - Advice, Please!

      by stynes Online Now Jun 22, 2009 at 3:17 PM

      I'm planning on coming out and hiking the Teton Crest from Teton Villiage, up past Lake Marion via the tram, and on to Lake Jenny beginning on July 20. I have a few questions I'm hoping hikers experienced in the area can help me with.

      - I wasn't able to get reservations. Any experience on being able to walk up and make this trip?
      - Snow cover. I know it can take a while for some of the higher elevations to melt. Any idea what I can expect this year?
      - Temperature. Most nights will be spent in the 8-9k foot range. What should I expect in terms of temperatures?

      Thanks!

    • The best way to spend 1.5 days in Teton?

      by Anjulis Online Now Aug 4, 2008 at 3:12 PM

      Hi,

      My wife and I will arrive in Jackson Hole airport at 3 pm this Friday. The plan is to drive to Teton, stay in a campground for 2 nights, then move to Yellowstone for 6 days.
      I was told by park workers that they always have sites available in campgrounds

      Friday: I guess it will be too late to do/see anything, right or wrong? Are there any places that are spectacular in the sunset or where animals come out to drink at night?

      Saturday: What is the absolutely best way to spend a day in Teton? We are fit and like to hike but open to any activity.

      Are there places to buy food/supplies (store, not restaurant)?

      What car is better to rent? Does it make sense to get a convertible or an SUV?

      Myself and two of my friends are intending to hike the Teton Crest Trail in August. We were hoping to park the car at the end (String Lake TH) and somehow getting a ride to the beginning (hwy 22 and Phillips Canyon Trail). Well. The question is. Is there any way that people typically do this? (public transportation/hitchhiking/etc...)

      We're driving up from Salt Lake City, staying 3 nights in Jackson Hole, then driving up to West Yellowstone and staying 4 nights. Since we're going so early, the usual summer activities won't be available. Any other recommendations aside from hiking, which we will be doing. Never have been to either the Grand Teton National Park or Yellowstone. What in particular re: Grand Teton do you recommend not to miss?? We are in our mid-40's, two couples traveling together so while the Million Dollar Cowboy bar sounds fun, we don't particularly want to hang there every night. Other suggestions?

      Routefinding - Lower Saddle to Teton Crest Trail

      by figgskzoo Online Now Jul 29, 2004 at 11:30 AM

      Does anyone have any info regarding a possible route westward from Lower Saddle to the Teton Crest Trail, perhaps descending into the Dartmouth Cirque via Dartmouth Couloir on the West face of the Grand then proceeding west to gain the Teton Crest Trail? I'll be attempting an ascent of the Grand via Upper Exum, then descend to Lower Saddle and hoping to proceed west (either directly or indirectly) to the Teton Crest Trail. Is this pure folly? Any help would be most gratefully received, and if you're in the area on the night of Aug 5th, come to Snake River Brewing and I'll buy you a beer. Thanks in advance! -figgs Kalamazoo, MI
