Florida Frank wrote:After years of anticipation I finally have a trip planned to Yellowstone and the Tetons in August. Booked uncharacteristically early in order to get in park lodging, which is going fast...at least in Yellowstone. We'll be spending three nights in a cabin at Canyon Village and three nights in a cabin at Colter Bay Village. This will be a family vacation. So the question: Three days in each park. What's not to be missed in terms of easy to moderate family day hikes, scenery, wildlife, and getting away from the crowds at the roadside rest stops?
Thanks much for any advice!

Yellowstone: Firehole & Boiling are too crowded for my tastes, but it's obvious why people like them.
