Bear Tooth Highway

If you go to Cody, and you should, be sure to take a day trip just north of Cody just into Montana. There is a very scenic drive that will take you up to alpine meadows where there will still be snow on the ground. It's called the Bear Tooth Hwy, and gets the name from the switchbacks. It is a narrow two lane highway, and would be perfect for a motorcycle ride.

Along the road is a forest ranger lookout tower that you can drive up to. This is a mostly one lane dirt road. Kind of nerve wracking going around curves on the side of the mountain, but, once you get there, you're glad you did. A great place for a picnic.

In trying to layout a road route, should we go in on the north, south, east.

Any web links to show the layout of the park with the attractions?

Stream I was planning on bringing my 750 Shadow

Yellowstone Trip in May

I have reservations, mid-May 2007, for a couple of days at Colter Bay and a week at Fishing Bridge at Yellowstone. Looking forward to the adventure and experience. Does anyone have a recommendation for what section/area of Fishing Bridge to request once I get there.

Bear Tooth Highway For what our opinion is worth, we would affirm that the Bear Tooth scenic drive is superb, but it is definitely a day trip. We would suggest that you do NOT pull your Airstream or drive your MH over the Beartooth! When we made the drive, we saw many MH's barely moving as they were ascending the drive, puffing black smoke, or tv/trailers getting into some very tight parking or hair pin turns. However, we did see small trailer units and tent campers set up in to-die-for camping areas. Spend the day. Stop often. Breathe the rarified mountain air. Wonder at the alpine flower gardens, lakes, and glaciers. But, make the drive in your tow vehicle, toad, or bike, as suggested ~G

Bob,
Plan on making more than one trip to the Yellowstone/Teton area.
We've been there each of the last two years, paddled over geysers on the lake. Paddling the Oxbows at Teton NP is a must. Plan on an overview, you'll go back.... Here we are on a lunch break, Beartooth Pass last year.
Stream Safe,

Michelle, that's a useful map thanks,

Explain
paddling over geysers on the lake, I'm bringing my canoe so it sounds like fun.

Where else to paddle?

Stream Safe,
Getting glimpses of folks like you on the road was one of our great motivations to get into this amazing Airstreaming life.
Thanks!

A plug.......

for one of the best sub shops in the West!

If anyone is in Jackson Hole, stop in the New York City Sub Shop and tell them that I sent you (Lew from Hood River)! Bruce (the owner with the huge handlebar moustache) hails from the NYC area and makes an awesome hot sub in a bunch of flavors. Get either the Cheese Steak or the Bronx (turkey) YUM!!!!
They even bake their own bread...................................

I'm not accostomed to traveling steep mountain grades, and this is exactly what you will be doing. I found the book "Mountain Directory West" to be an invaluable resource. Their website is Welcome to Mountain Directory . This book explains just what a % grade is, and it gives great narratives of most mountain highways with recommendations to take/avoid them if you are towing, or in a motorhome.

Our route was from Casper, WY to Cody, WY and then into Yellowstone. We took the southern route over to Cody and managed to travel in some very scenic canyons. We never encountered a grade more than 7%, and all were manageable towing the 31' we had at the time. We had friends meet us in Cody who arrived from the northeastern part of Wyoming and they had to deal with long, several miles, of 8% - 10% grades up and down. They said they would never, never take that way again.

It all boils down to your comfort level, and your tow vehicle. The Mountain Directory books are a good investment for anyone, especially me.

roads in Yellowstone

I have been on most of the Yellowstone roads. As I remember there is one long uphill but it is not too bad. The problem is the road condition of some of the roads are in poor repair. They are windy an crowded. Most of your driving will probably be sans airstream anyway. You have to look out for buffalos, etc, in the road but what you have to look out more for is other cars looking out for buffalo, etc. It is not uncommon for the car in front of you to slam on it's brakes without warning in the middle of the road, at which point you can bet all the doors will fly open followed by kids, dogs, parents in funny hats and at least 2 or 3 cameras hanging form their necks, and blue hair grandmas with walkers.

I was out there gawking at the buffalo one day when a station wagon came screeching to a stop. As the car door opened this toy poodle beat everyone to the draw and ran out into the middle of a buffalo herd, picked out the biggest bull and started barking at it nose to nose. The bull buffalo had this bewildered look on it's face as if it was trying to figure out what this white fluffy noise was. Well, the poodle was followed in short order by Granny Blue Hair who ran into the herd and snatched up Fluffy. I thought she was buffalo pie for sure. This is the straight poop.

Boondocking?

No, I don't think so. But a few years back I stayed just a bit south of the Park entrance at a place called Lizard Lake (i think) If I recall correctly it was a state park. Very peaceful, yes a lake. I met a couple who owned one of Wally's Personal Trailers. Easy drive into the park.

I know the Wyoming Unit of the WBCCI is hosting a Yellowstone Rally June 5-10. This is a National Rally and several DenCO Members are planning on attending - sounds like fun...I unfortunately need to work during that one.

Here's a small announcement in our newsletter, I believe there is a coupon in the Blue Beret or you could contact Chris Olsen the WY Unit President for more info.
