Yellowstone and Grand Teton
State Capitol, WyomingYellowstone National ParkGrand Teton National ParkSalt Lake City, Utah
Suggested route: Cheyenne, WY – Custer, WY – Clearmont, WY – Yellowstone National Park – Grand Teton National Park – Salt Lake City, UT
Escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life on this nine-day adventure. I look forward to turning under the stars in Custer, floating along Lake Yellowstone in a kayak and hiking in the mountains of Grand Teton National Park. These two spectacular parks sit side by side in northwestern Wyoming and provide endless opportunities for adventure seekers to marvel at the natural beauty of the West. Whether you want to climb the water of the Snake River, watch geothermal hot springs or just spend a day swimming and relaxing on Lake Jackson, there is something for every rural lover in this area.
“My advice to Yellowstone is to book early! The park receives more than half of its annual visitors between June and August. You can avoid the crowds by visiting the shoulder seasons and also hitting the big sights early in the morning. “
