What Ho my cousins across the pond. It's been a while since I pestered you for your vast knowledge of things to do & places to visit so now that we've got Brexit out the way (as if!!!!) I thought it was time I should come at you once more for some tips.
I'm trying to plan a trip for 3 couples, (we're all in our 60's in body, but about 18 in our minds), leaving the UK in the first week of September. My initial thoughts at the moment are:-
Day 1 Flight to Salt Lake City
Day 2 Head to Thermopolis
Day 3 Enjoy Thermopolis
Day 4 Head to West Yellowstone (or in Yellowstone if Hotel prices are not too pricey)
Day 5 to 7 inclusive, Enjoy Yellowstone National Park.
Day 8 Head to Shoshone Falls
Day 9 Enjoy Shoshone Falls
Day 10 Head to West Wendover
Day 11 Visit the Salt Flats (it's the final Speed Week day - Monday)
Day 12 Head back to Salt lake City & home
I understand Yellowstone may get a bit chilly at this time, (and could possibly even have snow by then), but is quieter. Not knowing much about the terrain/locale I'd appreciate any tips on potential weather issues to expect, places to visit on or around that route, and even alternative suggestions.
Thanks as always, must go now, it's time for a nice cuppa tea, something I've never had in the US :)
