  1. Default carmel, ca to the old faithful inn

    Anyone have any suggestions for two good overnight stops on a drive from carmel to yellowstone? I was going to try to do this with one stop, but I think it may be too much. Thank you!

    2 days is just doable with a stop in Elko, NV if you take fastest route. That's right at 550 miles a day - about 10 hours. 3 days would be Reno and Twin Falls, ID.

    With around 1100 miles to cover it's on the limit of what we recommend to be a full days driving, 550 miles and 10 hours with short stops for a one nighter, so it is possible

    I have no first hand recommendations but you could split it with stops around Reno [350miles], Twin Falls, [450miles] and Yellowstone [315miles] to space it out nicely.

    Note [I sound like an echo, but I was checking distances when glc was posting and we overlapped]

    Great minds think alike ! Lol!

    thanks - It was suggested that getting to Elko in one day would be difficult. And then I read that a whole bunch of road work is fixing to get started on the the road to elko (80?). Reno area and twin falls was my thought as well.

    I think your biggest issue is going to be getting around the SF Bay area. You might consider taking 152 over Pacheco Pass to 5.
