Tom222, from what others have said about Yellowstone in the fall, bring some warm clothes! :-) I have yet to travel through Utah and the Grand Canyon, but we hope to make it there someday, Lord willing. Have a great trip!

Tom,

Sheridan Lake in Custer state park is beautiful. We were there this past June for three days and loved it. Hill city is a nice little town close by Sheridan Lake and worth a day trip.

If you cross over to Yellowstone via the Bighorns, I recommend stopping for at least one night at Sibley Lake. It's very secluded and we saw moose with calf. We travel in a 32' motorhome.

Fishing bridge in Yellowstone has all services but is basically a trailer park. Work great for a base camp though.

Jackson Hole WY is good for a full day of shopping/food. Look closely and you can find the local shops. They have locally made items. My wife bought a beautiful gold pendant in the shape of the Tetons made by local artist.

Happy travels

thanks for posting this, we are headed to West Yellowstone this Sunday and will also be staying at the Grizzly RV park as well. My kids are very excited for our week long trip.

We will be coming in off of I-90 though the badlands, any concerns that I should have coming in from that way?

Fishing Bridge was a disappointment for us. The spots are way too close together, spoils the wilderness experience.

Just keep in mind the road between thumb and old faithful is closed for the season due to major construction. Looks like replacement of a bridge. Just a little more driving around the side of the loop.

BTW. I always carry bus chains for my MH. Haven't needed them yet but have them in case it gets bad out there.

Is that road closure on the loop? I am not familiar with the roads.

we are headed there on Sunday. Here is a good map that shows the closure and the detour routes.

Probably a little chilly in Yellowstone this morning. It was 18F at the 5000 ft level this morning (Fri 9/12/14). Bet it may be a little colder at the 8000 ft level. Should warm up during the day. We had 2 inches of snow at 5000 ft on Thursday. Mostly melted now.

How do I keep my pipes from freezing? I plan to put a light in the Plumbing/ dump compartment. But should I be concerned about any other areas of the RV?

U do the loop, is there any way around the closure other than going all the way back around the loop?

from what I see no.

We are staying in West Yellowstone (Grizzly RV) and will be taking day trips in the park in our mini-van. We haven't really set a plan, we kind of like to just go with the flow and now stress about planning to much of it out.

the weather temps in west yellowstone for next week look good, lows in the mid 30's and highs in the mid to low 70's. Should be a beautiful week.

here is one more link that show the road construction and expected delays and timelines.

looks like there are some other issues to work (drive) around as well from now until the end of the month, so keep those in mind as well.

I drove up there couple of weeks ago. Looks like replacement of a bridge. No way except around the loop the other way.
