i would like to see the geysers especially old faithful and of course some of the wildlife and scenery. i would like to travel either in spring time or early summmer. Would like to go in winter too but i heard its real hard to get around because of the weather.
i would like advice on where to stay as far as lodging or a hostel that might be nearby that anyone can recommend. anyone know of any economy tours? and also flying there. I am leaving from new york. which airport would i arrive to and connect to closest by? i plan on staying for a week - 10 days.
You might check the National Park Service's website about Yellowstone about these questions. They bascially have almost all the information. Also regarding opening times of roads and accommodation options. I was there end of May last year and all but one road were open but accommodation just over half. It's rather expensive in the park itself, but there are a few gateways just outside the park proper, like West Yellowstone and Gardiner. Stayed in the latter one a few nights and a few nights in the park. West Yellowstone is closer to Old Faithfull.
Yellowstone is one of my favourite places in the USA, I really enjoyed the hiking and I know we stayed at a good camping ground, I'll try and remember what it was called for you! Great photography to be had there too, with the wildlife/scenery combo
