I'm preparing again!
This one we'll leave Missouri on Wednesday, June 26 and work our way up to the Black Hills, then Yellowstone & Grand Teton to Mount Hood - we have to be there by AM of July 7. Take a break for a week there (8 year old has snowboard camp), then push off to California to the Sierras, stay 10-days in the San Francisco-Yosemite area, then working our way back via the southwest through Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, then up through Kansas to get back to MO by August 9 or 10.
I have a 2 and 8 year old - so Badlands is going to be a day (with Minuteman Missles) since I really don't want to worry about the 2 year old in Badlands!
But - Yellowstone - that's huge......how much time, realistically, should I plan to spend there? Everything in Yellowstone is already booked for my dates, so I was thinking of staying in Jackson - is that reasonable or should I look somewhere else?
