You are so right about that! I was in tears, after listening to the story of the battle, and walking around the area looking at the grave markers. The park Ranger who told us the story, had a great great grandfather who was buried on that hill. So sad!

There is a very nice campground adjoining the battlefield called 7th Calvary Ranch. Get location for visiting the area.

Going west bound to Yellowstone on I-90 is no big deal but you never mentioned which entrance you will enter Yellowstone. I ask because I have heard the east entrance and the SE entrance roads are difficult with a motorhome and toad. Also the Main entrance on the North which is the original main entrance I have driven I wouldn't drive in that way.
So I do like coming in from the south going into the Grand Tetons and I also like the West Entrance in W Yellowstone.
Are you planning to stay inside the park? Where?


I took this route going into the Grand Tetons to the South Entrance to Yellowstone a few years ago.
Rt 26 is good. Not an interstate but a typical 2 lane route but no mountains to go over.
The route going south out Jackson Hole will take you around the mountain and head you to Idaho Fall then south on Interstate 15 to Salt Lake City where you hit I-80 east. This part is all 4 lane.

Hope this helps you

It's not a bad road, but if heading back to NY, why not take 191 down to I-80? Going via 26 adds on a few hundred miles.

You have me confused f5moab, for someone going east the shorter route from the Tetons is hwy 26 down to 287 and that down to I-80 at Rawlins, WY. Your hwy 191 route would be better for someone going west.

IGGY thanks for the info we are just in the planning stage for a trip in 2017. We were thinking about entering the east side and staying in the park maybe fishing bridge that way we could see more off the park and then head back towards NY on a differant route

I was referring to the quote from the post before mine that stated:
"The route going south out Jackson Hole will take you around the mountain and head you to Idaho Fall then south on Interstate 15 to Salt Lake City where you hit I-80 east. This part is all 4 lane."

That's why I suggested Hwy 191 to I-80.
