It would waste half your day at least. It seems like a stupid thing to tell someone as a tip, but Yellowstone is HUGE and it has a 2 lane road in a figure 8 around it.

I also would suggest dividing things up by Region, Ie see the Paintpots and Old faithful on one day, Roosevelt and Lamar valley another day, Yellowstone lake and the Canyon on another etc

its a great place. DW and I were there for a week and a half in the beginning of June

I completely agree with Mountaindreamís advice of packing a lunch, it will definitely optimize your time in the park. FYI, there are restaurants in Yellowstone such as those at the Old Faithful area, Canyon Village, Fishing Bridge area, Grant Village, and other locations.

This discussion of Yellowstone has gotten me thinking I need to visit it again. A few pics from the area.

This photo is on the route I mentioned. There are a few scenic pullouts that can be used for potty breaks. We carry about 10 gallons in the fresh water tank for toilet flushing purposes.

Those are some awesome pictures. We had been debating between the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone, and this confirms that we definitely can't go wrong with Yellowstone this summer. Grand Canyon will have to wait another day.
