I prefer to be a good RV'r and let the people with kids get to enjoy their vacations without a bunch of retired people jamming up the roads.

Absolutely! All my life I've been looking forward to seeing it all. We did last summer. We were NOT disappointed. However...even with the all the amazing beauty you'll see, I sure wish someone had given us a 'heads up' on the pine beetle devastation suffered in some sections of the park. We were not quite prepared for it. The absence of tree cover was something to see in of itself...just wasn't ready for starkness of it all. Bob

I was in Yellowstone the year before the fire, although beautiful, as you drove down the roads because of the lush foliage and trees, you couldn't see a thing beyond the side of the road. After the fire, it opened up all the vistas you see today. As you saw, the new growth is making a strong return.

We work in the park and have a pretty good working knowledge. If you come in from the East, you can enter either the northeast entrance via Cooke City(Bear Tooth/Chief Joseph Scenic Byway/Highway out of Cody) or the east entrance via Cody. We usually enjoy several days in Cody before hitting the park. History buffs will enjoy the historical center--5 museums in 1 and the Hotel Irma, built by Buffalo Bill.

If your coach is 36 feet or under, you can use the campgrounds at the various destination points. Fishing Bridge can accommodate the large rigs. We have also seen larger rigs in Grant. Until Fishing Bridge is updated there is no full service campground.

Cruzen did a great job of describing the park. I might add that the Lemar Valley is known as America's Serenghetti for good reason. This is the road from Roosevelt to Cooke City or the upper road out of the park. Generally the big animals are more easily seen on the east side of the loop road, while Old Faithful thermal features on the west. Generally the spring of the season finds the animals less skiddish and more out in the open. Thermal features are more active also in the spring as the water volume is greater and the effect noticable.

The wildflowers are spectacular, months of July-Aug, but varies season to season. Aspen are in Sep in the Tetons and quite the show if you hit the right time frame.

Of course, lots of folks are thrilled to spot and view wolves. You might want to check out the wide array of Institute Courses offered by the Yellowstone Association, with some housed in the historic buffalo ranch in the Lamar Valley.

We went in September in 09 and October in 08. Both times were not very crowded. Check the park website for construction delays however.

Do a search and find my post on "Our September 2010 Trip To Yellowstone." We left from St. Augustine, FL. It takes five days to Mount Rushmore, one more day to Cody, WY and then an hour to Fishing Bridge. Be sure to see the Grand Tetons while there.
