Is anyone driving from Mammoth Hot Springs to Canyon Village or Jackson Hole June 27 2015? Could I get a ride?

I will be doing this program July 5 - July 11, 2015 and would be interested in finding a roommate.

We are arriving fr SC on May 10. We plan to stay extra night at HIE, and hopefully they have a shuttle. This is our first RS adventure. And we look forward to making new friendships!

Am interested in combining this trip May 11-17, 2014, followed by #4874RJ (MAY 18-23, 2014) Hiking in Yellowstone: Wildflowere, Wildlife, Waterfalls, Hot Springs.
I would appreciate advice on 2 concerns: (1) ability required to do a Moderately Challenging trip. (I completed an Active trip #8727 Utah's ...Parks.)
(2)Getting from Yellowstone Lodge, W. Yellowstone to Yellowstone River Motel, Gardiner, MT.

Did you get any advice? Grand Canyon of Yellowstone hike seems like the biggest challenge. Was it?

Are there laundry facilities at our hotels/cabins?
Helen Sternheim May 26, 2013 at 04:27 PM

Read each of the hotels ammenities, or call them via phone.
Jane Denbo May 26, 2013 at 06:18 PM

None of them list laundry, but I thought R.S. might know. Thanks.

Jane Denbo May 21, 2013 at 06:26 PM

For the June 23 trip we will be driving up from the south. Would you recommend going all the way up to Bozeman before turning south to the park, or cutting east through the park at some point? And if so, where? We would want the faster route.
Martin Bloomenthal Jun 15, 2014 at 05:13 PM

I haven't checked all the roads, but have you considered entering Yellowstone from the South, via Jackson Hole (and a view of the Tetons)?

Hi - this will be my first trip to Yellowstone. Looking for a roommate for the Sep 24 trip. One of the things I love about Road Scholar is the fabulous people I meet everywhere I go. Just retired and will have much more time to travel in the future. If interested, let me know.
