I'm spending a week driving from Salt Lake City to Bozeman, Montana to spend time at both Grand Tetons National Park and Yellowstone National Park in early May as well as any other good stops along the way. What are your recommendations for interesting things to see, good hikes, good local food, or inexpensive places to stay to get the full experience?
Stop at Jenny Lake boating (Moose Rd, Moose, WY 83012). Ride the boat. Hike up to the Inspiration Point. Take some pictures. Then, drive to the base of Mount Jackson( 3265 West Village Drive Teton Village, WY 83025) and ride tram to the top of the mountain. Enjoy the view.
