Hi, my husband and I are planning a trip to West Yellowstone mid December.
We will be flying into Salt Lake City and hiring a car from there and making our
way to West Yellowstone via Idaho Falls. We plan to make a one night stop-over
in Idaho Falls though we are not sure if that is necessary. Our main intention is
to spend 4 nights in West Yellowstone and than drive on to Twin Falls and onward
to Portland, and down south to San Francisco and end up in LA. We have about 8 days
to make our way to LA, so we can have stop overs where necessary. Our deepest concern
is the driving conditions in winter from Twin Falls to Portland. We would prefer to make
a stop over in between as we do not wish to drive once the sun sets. Apart from Boise
where would you suggest we can stop over ? Is driving along that highway easy in the snow ?
We have not driven in snowy conditions before and prefer to give ourselves a slower pace to
move from one city to the next. Would you advise that we fly instead of driving ?
Some advise is much appreciated.
