If possible, maybe find someone to take it back and do the trip in reverse.
We'd be interested, but IDK if it's possible to return with someone else..

I am trying to rent a car in Bozeman and return it in Jackson, but the rental car companies are not letting me do a different drop off location a week later.  Any thoughts?
Find out what the fee is if you return your RT in another location, it might be worth it.

Being the cheap guy I am. I split my rental into two. One RT (as I was still within a hour of BZN a week later) and the other a one way, because it was fortune to do a 10 day one way rental.

I've never been asked for ID when returning a rental car anywhere.

Planning a trip to Yellowstone NP, with 2 days in Yellowstone and 1 day in Grand Teton.

I see there are dozens of geysers and geothermal features along the trails that starts from Old Faithful.

If I explore that area and trail for a couple of hours (all the way to the end at morning glory spring), is it still worth stopping at various other basins/geysers related sights such as artist's paint pots? Grand Prismatic, West thumb Basin (or is it basically more of the same)?

If so, which ones are distinctly different, and worth the extra stop?

Also does it make more sense to go around the park from geyser to geyser based on the prediction times, or to just plan a route through the park and hope to catch some nice activity along the way?

P.s. I understand that aside from the geothermal wonders, there is wildlife watching and scenery/hikes to see that are worth spending time at.
P.P.s. I came across this fascinating video on the unique geography/topography of yellowstone, which is worth watching for those interested in yellowstone:  "

Make sure to see at least one geyser eruption (easiest to plan is old faithful). Don't miss grand Prismatic. (There is a hill you can hike up to see it from above that is supposed to be a better vantage point than from right next to it, but it's near the fairy falls trailhead)
I did artists painters and wasn't super impressed with it more than any others. I would suggest going to some of the mudpots and volcanoes (although most are in another area of the park)

IMO Grand Prismatic Spring is one of the most amazing natural sights in the US and is not to be missed.
