Any place to be with a family on Shabboss in the area?
Shul, Food, etc.?

There is a chabad in Jackson Hole. They have some kisher items in the supermarket there. When I was there we only got a minyan for friday night. Call them, they have lots of useful information.

Any reason to prefer one of them other than the Mikvah?

Was anyone at grand Teton this past week?  How did, if at all, the 2 forest fires affect your trip?

We am thinking of going this summer, as part of our US trip..
We arent really into hiking but enjoy seeing nice views etc.
We have two children under two..

Would you guys say skip it for now?

Going to be in the "area" (hoping to do both Dakotas, Montana and Idaho)

What exactly is this "US trip"?  Lots of car time?  If your kiddos could handle lots of time in car, I wouldn't skip Yellowstone.  There are lots of great views that require a walk, not exactly a hike.  I'm not really into hiking either.  I'd skip Grand Teton.

(As part of a two week trip, we went to Glacier and Yellowstone/Grand Teton.  Did the seven hour guided hike to Iceberg Lake in Glacier NP.  It was beautiful, but arrived back at the car in such pain (leg and knee), I would not have been able to drive.  I was doing nothing even remotely like that the following week in Yellowstone.  We did mostly walks of about 20-30 minutes IIRC, and had a great time.  I was underwhelmed with Grand Teton. This was pre-kids.)

When will you be there? R"Ch Elul is going to be an awesome time to be in Teton. I wish I could be there
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.

The couple of days around 8/21 are gonna be absolutely crazy in the Tetons, I'd avoid it at all costs. Otherwise both parks would make for an incredible few days.

Have you picked out somewhere else to be? I wanted Teton even though it will be crazy. I'm ending up in middle america
