Re: Road Trip to Montana in August
As you get closer.. if the hoppers are on the Yellowstone - that can be great fun! I'd make that determination between that the Big Hole (also the water levels and temps)
For the park, remember the speed limits - normally about 35-45 - are just about impossible to reach, as someone's first sighting of an elk or bison, and people bail out of their cars in the middle of the road, just allow a lot more time.. and patience.
I'd agree with fishnskiguy about the NE rivers of YNP. The issue.. everyone else agrees too - lol
