Thread: Montana/Wyoming road trip

    Another option might be to drive the Beartooth Highway. I have never done this myself, but a friend did and raved about the spectacular views from the road:

    Thanks for the recommendation. The site suggests 3 hours one way,so that'd be tough to return to a home base (6 hours in one day), so would it be better to go one-way, stay elsewhere, or turn around at some point? The videos look beautiful.

    Anyone with knowledge know if Canyon Lodge in Yellowstone is a good base for exploring Yellowstone for several days, and Spring Hill Suites in Jackson Hole for Grand Teton? Both have suites with roll-out sofas that I imagine would work with my lift, just would need to verify clearance AROUND the sofa bed. I'm still thinking of the first full week in September, or the week prior.

    Ugh...I just spoke with Canyon Lodge. The reservation rep was so helpful, but in the end, the beds are an issue. She spoke with housekeeping/maintenance, who confirmed platform beds. And there was concern about the space around the sofa bed. Frustrating.


    Update: After hanging up, I then thought to ask how much distance there was between wall and bed, other then 'tight fit'. I spoke with the manager, who said things could be moved if need be. He is supposed to send me pics. I did make a tentative reservation for August 24th-Sept 2, and can cancel/modify w/o penalty up to 30 days out. I know I won't be staying there the whole time, or know yet without seeing the pics if it'll work, but at least I have a room in park reserved. I did have to upgrade to a suite for the foldout couch, which unfortunately costs twice as much, but oh well.
