Going to Grand Teton & Yellowstone next Sunday to Friday. Here is the very basic itinerary. Any thoughts or comments?

Day 1:
EWR to BZN 8:30 am - arriving at 11:30 app.

Renting a van from National for $400!!! (any tips), quick stop at Walmart, and on to Mammoth Hot Springs.

Next stop at Norris Geyser Basin.

Then head to Holiday Inn West Yellowstone for the night.

Day 2:
Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Mud Volcano, and?.

Day 3:
Leave hotel in West  Yellowstone and start heading towards Grand Teton (Marriott Jackson). Stopping at the many geysers along the way including Grand Prismatic Spring and Old Faithful - will prob. take a full day for all the stops (if we even have time for all our plans).

Day 4:
Possible Schwabacher Landing sunrise trip, Antelope Flats, Gros Ventre.

Day 5:
Possible Oxbow Bend sunrise, Jenny Lake (inspiration point hike),

Day 6: Departure at 8 am, maybe we"ll have time for one more sunrise.

Any tips and suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

Day 1
Have in mind that you'll litterly be passing by the Norris Geysers when heading out to the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. If you are willing to drive the extra time you may want to go through the tower junction loop. (It's the quietest place in Yellowstone, and take in mind that the road from Mammoth to Norris has traffic )

Day 2
Hayden Valley is a must. Yellowstone lake is nice as well.

Day 3
It shouldn't be a full day in Yellowstone for those 3 stops (you can go to West thumbs Geysers, although It wasn't anything special ) , but there some nice stops that you can make along the route in addition to the long ride.

Day 4
When going to Schwabacher Landing continue on the path until you get to the nicest spot (courtesy of @somethingsfishy ) and don't forget about the Barn (can't remember the name )

The car rental price sounds good, according to what I saw.

Tidbit: Around the block from the Marriott there is an antelope arch, which is nice.

Enjoy your trip. (And write a TR...)
Thanks

anything and everything....
where and how do i start to plan for something like this?
we are bh, family of 9, 2 adults 7 kids....
im thinking of making this a 2.5-3 week trip
dont want to rush through it, but enjoy it.
how did you manage with kosher foods?
where did you spend shabbat?
flew in and out of same airport?

again any and all info would be appreciated

thank you

Between the size of your family and needing kosher food, the way I'd approach this is to pick 3 hubs (Glacier, Yellowstone, location near Canadian NPs), one per week, and get an airbnb at each location, do day trips.  It will be hard to find meat along the way, and you'd probably have to take it all with you, and shlep from one place to the next.  Pros: you get a decent fridge/freezer to keep food frozen, and can book a house large enough for your family.  Look into what food will be allowed through customs if switching countries.

The problem with this trip is that there is no good place to restock kosher/go to restaurant.  If you are not set on the destination, I'd probably recommend something more like Vegas/LA/San Fran (many national parks), if you haven't been to those places and depending on what time of year.  Or Washington and Oregon for cooler weather.

We spent Shabbos in our hotel room, didn't venture out at all.  There were no Chabads nearby back then, but I believe there are some in the area now.  You can look into renting an airbnb near Chabad.

Unless the locations naturally form a loop, it might not make sense to fly into and out of one airport.  We flew into/out of BZN, but we didn't venture too far.

While I've done that trip and enjoyed it, as well, I was thinking more along the lines of SFO->Sequoia/Kings Canyon->Yosemite->Lassen Volcanic->Crater Lake->Redwood->SFO.  I've done the first three in a week, and the second three in a separate weeklong trip.  But I'm sure there's another thread for all that.
