In September my husband and I spent 12 days travelling from Yellowstone NP down South via Tetons, SLC & Monument Valley ending up in Vegas. We covered 1,700 miles. We raved so much about Yellowstone when we came back that now my parents want to go, with us as well so we can do the driving. We donít want to do the same itinerary, and the pace would be too fast for my parents anyway (we pretty much had 1 night per hotel so were always on the move). I was wondering about an itinerary around the North West corner, but really need some help.
On our previous trip, we flew to Bozeman Airport from Chicago. With no major towns near Yellowstone I realise we may have to do a similar internal flight (ultimately flying in from UK). But where to go from Yellowstone? We have 2 weeks, would like to spend approx. 4 days in Yellowstone. Can we make a circular trip from here? Or a one-way trip somewhere? Would Seattle or Portland offer a viable route? Are they nice cities to head towards? Totally open to ideas. National Parks, beautiful scenery, ghost towns, history, etc all of interest. Also scenic drives rather than Interstate driving. Is there much to see on Buffalo Bill/ Native Indians around the Yellowstone Area? Or is that more towards Colorado? Again, open to ideas for the best possible itinerary, with Yellowstone as the focus.
Any pointers to help me narrow down a direction at least greatly appreciated!! We will probably be looking to travel end Aug/Sept 2014.
