I'm planning a road trip from Naperville, Ill to Seattle Washington and appreciate any feedback you may have on my current plans.
Estimated driving times are taken from AAA online TripTick and does not allow for stops. I will make stops as needed.
I'm a bit concerned about the long drive from Buffalo, Wyoming to West Yellowstone via Beartooth highway. Is this practical?
Plan to use West Yellowstone as my base to explore Yellowstone and the Tetons. How practical is this?
Appreciate any suggestions for day hikes in Yellowstone and Grand Tetons.
Appreciate any suggestions for day hikes anywhere along the route.
I'm open to suggestions to changing the route.
All feedback will be appreciated.
