Stay tuned to the weather on this journey... hope it stays good for you... some services close for the winter in Yellowstone about mid-September.

A lot depends on where you plan to enter Yellowstone. That time of year maybe try to get reservations for Grant Village or Bridge Bay.

Don't be surprised if it snows. I've been there twice in mid June and it snowed both times.

If you have the time, use US 287 all the way from Dallas to Grand Teton and go through the Yellowstone South Entrance. Tbere are many great places to camp in mid-September in Colorado and Wyoming along that road and you should be hitting the peak of the fall aspen leaf change.

A wonderful campground to stay in just before going through the South Entrance is the Colter Bay RV Park on Jackson Lake in Grand Teton National Park. You will go right past it on 287, so don't pass up the opportunity to spend at least one night there. The RV Park, as opposed to the Colter Bay campground, has electric hookups, which may come in handy if the weather does turn cold. And, if you don't already have a reservation, check campground availability in Yellowstone now because only a couple of their campgrounds have electricity and all, or some parts, of them may have already closed by the time you arrive.

Incidentally, we are going to be in Cody, Red Lodge, and Thermopolis at the same time you are going to be in Yellowstone! And I have worked in Yellowstone, including one mid-September when it did snow, and have been there numerous times since. So for other campground suggestions along US 287, PM me and I'll try to help out.

The wife and I are taking our Georgetown to the same area this weekend and staying in Dubois WY. for a week. We'll be using the toad to get around. Forecasted weather so far has the week looking pretty good, if not a bit chilly compared to the central valley!
