Northeast CORNER of Yellowstone NP. Go in through ROSEBUD, Montana -- BUT EDUCATE YOURSELF ABOUT GRIZZ!!! They are not called the Beartooth Mountains for nothing. Bring a LOT of film -- and a bear HORN!

When? Sawtooth Mts. and the Salmon river country around Stanley, sixty miles north of Sun Valley, are awful ugly.:o Be sure to skirt around there.

Sun Valley, up the highway above Ketchum is beautiful. Also The Nature Conservancy Preserve, Silver Creek, at Picabo is well worth visiting. (South of Hailey and Ketchum).

How much time are you planning? What time of year? Camping, hiking or paid rooms?

One trip or broken up so you can spend more time in each place?

We will be traveling in a small private propeller airplane, and will spend about a day or two at each place giving us a fair amount of flexibility. Hotels or motels, no camping this time! We are coming from Virginia…

If you are planning to come during the eclipse, I hear all the motels are booked within a one hundred and twenty mile radius of Stanley. We are on the line of totality. If you can land on grass airstrips this one http://smileycreeklodge.com/airport/ or https://idahoaviation.com/idahoAirstripDetail.php?id=25 would be a good place to watch from. A warm sleeping bag is all you would need, it has been getting down in the thirties at night.
