I am travelling with my elderly parent arriving Aug 29th evening and leaving Sept 7 morning in and out of Bozeman, MT. Strenuous hiking is out of scope but I would like to cover as much ground as drive-able with easy to moderate walking / hiking. I plan to go :
Glacier NP Aug 30th and Aug 31st at all three of Rising Sun and Swift Current Motor INN and Lake McDonald. Q1)Which would be better options to finalize ?
Yellowstone NP Sept 2nd,3rd,4th, 5th. Q2) Which of these would be a better option to choose? Q3) Can I cover Grand Teton, Jenny Lake in one day if I start from Old Faithful INN(early morning till sun down) ?
Q4) Would 3 days 2 nights be a good enough time at Glacier or should I spend an additional day at Glacier ?
Q5) Also is Craters of the Moon NP a good place or is it passable ?
Q6) Are there any other places that I should not be missing along the way ? I would be more interested in enjoying landscapes than doing a lot of hiking. We can walk around for an hour or two at max.
Q7)Any advice on must do trails in either NP ? Appreciate any input/ help.
I am staying in Helena on Aug 29th, Sept 1st and at Bozeman on Sept 6th. A lot of questions, its my first time at these NPs.
