yes, exactly.
It's called lower falls, it's 600 feet downhill. I just did it with a stroller. Every one passing me though I was nuts. Most ppl have baby carriers.

I'm planning a Yellowstone/grand Teton trip in August
I would appreciate if anyone could give me their favorite sites in both
thanks
Just got back from Yellowstone. How many days are you planning to stay in a park ? How many kids and what ages ? Where are you staying ?

You realize that that's a 4-hour drive to Yellowstone, right? Even to the Tetons it's a very difficult 1-hour drive over Teton Pass.

Doesn't sound remotely practical to me, let alone with a baby.

Not if it rains... Very steep grade and very high up. Not something most people want to drive twice a day.

Driggs to the West Yellowstone entrance is two hours, but its a fun drive (I had to stop for cows in the road). Then again I am not sure I would want to do it everyday. Then you are going to need to drive all around Yellowstone. Its not really all that practical. If its not too late, see if you can get a place in Big Sky MT. Its a little less than an hour from West Yellowstone and there is what to do in Big Sky itself. If you PM me, I can give you the number of place we stayed at, it cost us $200 on Airbnb (I used the gift cards from the Amex promo,so it netted me around $100 a night) for a nice three bedroom townhouse.

Right on that count, my mistake. For some reason I timed it to the East entrance instead of West ::).

Finding hotels is the hardest part of Yellowstone trip. Everything is an hour deive from any hotel. Near Jackson Hole through a chabad discount we found something nice, close to white water rafting and other stuff but not that close to yellowstone.

And you probably made your reservation a year in advance and paid a pretty penny for a room. Are the rooms even nice ? What type of hotel would you compare it to?

Crazy story...I booked my room the day of my stay iirc it was $200 (all lodging is controlled by the national parks, so the prices are kept relatively low) it's really hard to compare it to anything else.

+1

I tried 3 months in advance and they were pretty much booked.
