Better this way I suppose. Does this route sound do-able?
Thanks for all the help you all have provided for me to plan this. Already have a reservation in West Yellowstone at grizzly rv park. Just need to get through the upper loop to the other side with the rv and toad.
That route is imminently doable. I go from Cody via Wy120 to WY296 about every other year. I tow a Jeep behind my 34' gas motorhome. Not problems all the way to West Yellowstone.
Be sure to take some pictures. At the foot of Dead Indian Pass is a beautiful little Forest Service Campground. If your timing is right you might want to stay there for the night. Just beyond the campground is a bridge over an abrupt, deep canyon. Pull into the parking lot and walk out onto the bridge for a great view, good pictures and maybe a few deep gasps!!!
The following picture does not do it justice!
