Hi! Im new to this forum and i hope i placed this in the right topic. Me and my girlfriend are from Sweden and we are planning a big road trip from Seattle to Miami starting in mid august to end of october. We have a few places that we definatly want to see like: Yosemite, San Francisco, LA, Grand Canyon but otherwise we are open for suggestions. We would like to go to Yellowstone as well but its a bit of a drive there and we are wondering if its worth the extra drive of 1800 miles to go there? And if so and what point of the trip should we go there?
So far we have come up with two alternatives one were we go to yellowstone after we been to grand canyon that would be around end of september or beginning of october here's a link to google maps https://maps.google.se/maps?f=d&sour...m&z=4&dirflg=d
The other way we thinking of goin straight from seattle to yellowstone and then from yellowstone to portland and that would be in end of august. https://maps.google.se/maps?saddr=I-...a=8,12&t=m&z=5
the two alternatives are about the same distance but we will travelling through different states and we would be visiting yellowstone either in late august or late september. What time is best to visit yellowstone? We are planning to do some backcountry hiking and sleeping in tent, how cold are the nights in yellowstone in end september vs end august? So if anyone have any advice which way is more sceenic or if maybe the drive is too long for the amount of time that we have we would appriciate it alot.
