Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks

In June we visited Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park. The parks are adjacent to each other in Wyoming, and both parks are in the Rocky Mountains.

We flew to Montana and rented a car.  We rented a condo in Wilson, Wyoming, and used it as a base for day drips to see Grand Teton. The principal sights are the Grand Teton mountains, and we did see some wildlife.

We rented an apartment in Gardiner, Montana, to see Yellowstone National Park. Gardiner is the north entrance to Yellowstone, just outside the park, on the Yellowstone River.

Both parks offer wilderness, wildlife, mountains, and geology features. In Yellowstone, we saw the Old Faithful geyser, and we visited two river valleys to see wildlife. Yellowstone is a large park (almost 9,000 square km) with some excellent American wildlife. We’ll compare some of the American animals to African animals we saw in April on a Botswana safari.
