Montana and Wyoming to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks
Two spectacular national parks, spread only about 100 miles apart from each other, connected through are your finest option for a single road trip from April onwards. A week-long trip that covers two national parks is no mean feat. Jackson in Wyoming lies closest to Grand Teton and is the best option if you intend to lay over. Spring witnesses the annual migration of wildlife, so expect to be surprised by bison, deer, elks, and moose jostling to find their way to their summer homes. Keen drivers can swerve through John D. Rockefeller Memorial Parkway, a scenic connector between the two national parks, towards Yellowstone, to see more wildlife at this national park. What awaits you here are geysers, hot springs, mud spots, and more, a complete earthy experience to be savored.
Grand Teton looks quite different from the more popular Yellowstone National Park. This park is named after the Teton Range, which is a jagged, rocky mountain range, spread across this national park. Numerous lakes and splendid hiking trails are available here. Enthusiasts can spend weeks hiking each thrilling trail and visit Jenny Lake, Cascade Canyon, Schwabacher Landing, Oxbow Bend, and many more attractions. Yellowstone is different in spring. It is mostly winter here with lows at double to single digits, and the weather is highly unpredictable. It is in April that most roads open up as the snowfall retreats and you have to drive slowly to not disturb the migrating animals.
