Hi. I am new to the forum but have been reading such helpful advice from all the travelers since I joined. We are planning a trip from PA to Grand Canyon (staying 2 days), then up thru Tetons to Yellowstone (staying 3 days), then over to Custer, SD as a home base for 3 or 4 days to explore the sites in that area. Our plan is to get out to GC in 4 or 5 days from home. We can hit that portion quickly, or take some time to see anything special worth stopping for if anyone has some advice on that 1st leg of our trip. We will be heading out from the southeastern PA area (not far from Phila.) and can get to Grand Canyon whatever way is either fastest (already mapped) or do detours if warranted. Is there anything particularly special or fun to see between here and there? Background: We are two adults and one child who will be 13 by then. We travel well on roadtrips together and can do long days when necessary. The plan is to hit the road around the 3rd wk in June, traveling for appr. 3 weeks. I will have to firm up dates soon so I can try for reservations when they begin taking them for that time period. We hope to stay in a Bright Angel Rim Cabin at Grand Canyon, and both at Old Faithful Inn and Roosevelt cabins in Yellowstone. Wanted to stay at Slyvan Lake Lodge/Cabins in Custer State Park, SD, but due to budget constraints found a lovely group of cabins in Custer at a reasonable rate for our Black Hills visit. I apologize if I have babbled too much! Thanks to all.
