Input needed, Yellowstone, Cody ride?
The wife and I have our annual trip coming up the first week of september, the 3rd thru the 8th. We will be hitting the road on Labor Day (not our favorite day to travel but....) and have the next 5 days to cruise around. We were going to head up to the Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho but considering the fire or fires up there they really don't need tourists around. Plus we are dealing with the smoke from those fires here at home, really don't need to ride into it.
Hows Yellowstone NP, Cody and Beartooth Pass this time of year? I haunt been up there in 20 years so it would be nice to go. Jacksons is a good days ride from home here so we could toodle around up there for 3 days or so and then head home. I figure the real rush of heavy traffic in the park should be tapering down by then as most kids are back in school and summer break is over.
Is it too late for the run over the Beartooth Pass to Red Lodge? I know their September up there is a lot different than ours here! We will take any advise anyone has on the subject. Weather, places to stay and eat... stuff like that.
Edit to add,
Don't know if those fires in Idaho have smoked up the scenery up there too?
