I'm planning on heading to Yellowstone around May 20, 2009. I will be leaving from Virginia and hooking up with some friends in IA. Question is would anybody like to join us on this little trip? We thought in might be fun to caravan across the country meeting new friends and enjoying life. You would be free to join in with us as we explore the sites at Yellowstone and the surrounding area, or break off and do your own thing. We're just looking to have a good time and see a bunch of sights before we have to return home.

We're going to be in Branson with another couple about that time. When are you getting to IA? We'll probably be heading to Yellowstone via Mt Rushmore.

We are meeting up with some friends at the Amana Colonies. Plan on spending 2 days there and then heading out to Casper, WY, then Yellowstone.

Perfect timing. You beat the out-of-school bunch and the weather is great. BUT COLD. Take a bunch of pictures and spend as much time as you can

When you say cold...what's cold to you? My old bones might not be able to take to much cold!

Someone told us that there were two seasons in Yellowstone - July and winter.

We were there in September and there was a big temperature range. It was high 70s/low 80s during the day and low 40s/high 30s at night.

We were there the past August and one morning we had about 1" dusting of snow and ice. It went away quickly when the sun came out. Other than that, it was great weather.
Think good weather for the four days we were there except about three hours one morning while we had coffee.

I suggest taking the park in thirds. One day for each and I promise, each day will be different.

Figure anywhere from 20-40 deg. I find those quite acceptable. By noon, up to 40-50.

I rarely put on a jacket for those temps.
