My wife and I will be going to Yellowstone the first week of July. We have reserved a house in the middle of the forest near Wilson. We had planned on going there last year but the company I work for was prepping for a strike and if it did happen all vacations would have been cancelled. I have been wanting to go there for a long time, it's on my bucket list. :-D
Not sure what your itinerary looks and it's tough because there's A LOT to see at Yellowstone...But if you can squeeze in a couple days for the Grand Tetons, I'd highly recommend it.
We did a Saturday to Saturday, flying in and out of Jackson Hole.
That gave us two full days of hiking in the Grand Tetons, Sunday and Monday.
Tuesday we drove to Yellowstone with plenty of sightseeing and a few stops along the way.
That gave us most of Tuesday and three FULL days in Yellowstone...Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We hit it hard everyday, out the room before sun up, back in the room after dark, which is pretty late at that time of year. We managed to do both the lower and upper loops of Yellowstone, but time was tight.
We headed back towards Jackson Hole Saturday Morning, caught a Horseback riding trip in the Grand Tetons, then straight to the airport to fly out. Whew....A very full week, but one I will never forget!
You and your wife are in for a treat! Have fun and let us know how it went when you get back.
My apologies to everyone for drifting off topic. However, it does emphasize the wide variety of climates that our little flying friends can survive in, or unfortunately, in some cases...Not survive. :(
Hoping for the best for everyone, and their bees coming out of winter.
