HELENE’S TRIP

TO MONTANA & WYOMING

15 DAYS/6 STOPS 

 

A Magnificent Mountainous Road Trip!

Discover Helene’s travel profile and all her favorite trip itineraries.
Our dream was to discover the spectacular mountains of Montana (Glacier National Park) and the volcanic fields and mountains of Wyoming (Yellowstone and Grand Teton). After visiting other national parks and getting a taste of the natural magnificence of the earth, we wanted to visit others. During this road trip, we stayed an average of two to three nights per location. In 15 days, we drove a total of 1,200 km and spent 20 hours on the road. This itinerary is from August 2013.

GOOD TO KNOW

 
 

–  www.roadtrippin.fr is an excellent french website to use to plan your road trip in the National State Parks.

–  www.hikinginglacier.com is great to help you plan your hikes in Glacier National Park.

– Travel between end of May and beginning of October, roads can be closed because of the snow between Octobre and May. July and August are very crowded (Especially in Yellowstone NP)

– Please become familiar with some of the potential hazards in the parks : bears and mountain lions (Glacier national Park); bears, bisons, wolves and geothermal dangers (Yellowstone and Grand Teton).

– In the US National Parks, you will not find the most charming hotels. They are clean and practical. Some have great views.

– The food tends to be boring and there is little variety, i.e. hamburgers and Caesar salads. Try to plan ahead and pick up a picnic and groceries on the way.
