I'm spending 5 days at YNP this coming August, and I had a question regarding the necessary time to drive a loop of the full Beartooth, backtrack to take Chief Joseph, and Buffalo Bill scenic byways. I'm basically just trying to see if this is reasonable to do in one day, starting and ending from the Canyon Village area of YNP, or would I have to plan to stay a night in either Red Lodge or Cody to split it up?
In 2011 I made the drive from Bryce Canyon to Monument Valley, with stops at Goosenecks and Natural Bridges, in one day with no problems. So I am making the assumption that this drive should be about the same. Any thoughts?
