Post em Derek I would also like any info myself.

Ray I stayed at Great Basin National Park (Nevada/Utah border) as one of my stops but that's slightly off your path. It's supposed to have a great 2 hour cave tour. It can be a little warm there but it's up in altitude and cooler than the desert area. I was able to make the drive from the Tetons to GBNP in about 10 hours. In the Tetons I stayed at Lizard Creek CG which was nicer than others as far as campgrounds go. I saw several camps before you get to Jackson. I was in such a rush I didn't have time to locate boondock sites. There is supposed to be a great CG close to the Morgan Junction that is up a dirt road. Might be full during hunting season but it looked like the best spot for a SMB. Plan on several days in the area if you plan to see much. I never really looked at camping in Yellowstone. Lizard Cr is about 8 miles from the Yellowstone kiosk. so it was kind of central during my stay. I'll find my notes and post more info later. Oh and if you got a camera that you can put a filter on the lens, take a polarizer filter...it will help shooting into the pools and helps with colors. I'll post a few pics.

Driving Tips

Ray and Ruby ,
You have picked one of the best time's of the year to make your Yellowstone Trip . All of the previously posted tip's are worthwhile and I would like suggest that you stop at predetermined milages as this makes for pleasant family relation's( Ruby and your Children ) I would also suggest that on your way up or on your return trip try taking Utah Highway 89 from St.George (going up) or from Provo on your return . This will add approximately four hour's of driving time thru some of the most dramatic geology in the U.S. Short excursion's will take you thru Zion , Red Canyon Cedar Breaks and Bryce National Park .We have taken this route dozen's of time's over the last forty year's and never been disappointed , in fact my children remember this side trip better than any of the trip's abroad or domestic . it will make for a very pleasant addition to your Adventure ! Be Safe and Enjoy .

Greg,

Thank you so much for your advice. If time permits, we will definitely try take the 89 on the way home, because we don't want to loose our reservation at Yellowstone. Thank you again for all of your help with our build and other things!

Ray

Yellowstone or Bust

Ray and Ruby ,
Have a wonderful time and take along the two appropriately sized Nut Driver's , to check and snug your awning bolt's if necessary it will only take a few second's to do and you will eliminate some of the problem's that other's have had . Drive safe and I know that you will enjoy .

Yellowstone Park

Ray & Ruby,

You can't go wrong going to Yellowstone/Grand Teton NP. Keep your camera handy at all times as you just don't know when you'll see wildlife (sometimes it's human)! I'm leaving Yellowstone tomorrow to go to Fresno for some service on my van. I like all the suggestions for interesting stops along the way.

Here's a link to some low grade pics that I put up for my family and friends:http://www.kodakgallery.com/Slidesho...7&conn_speed=1

These pics are not to be compared to the pros we have on this forum!

If you travel through Glacier Natl. Park into Canada be sure to drive through the Kanaskas Wilderness. Unbelievable campgrounds. I was last through there in 85. Firewood was provided free! I wonder if they still do that. Going to Banff and Lake Louise be sure to have some good bug repellent. Sceeters up there are big enough to stand flat footed and breed with turkeys.
