I bet you're right Dutch. I was pulling the camper in a rainstorm when I went thru there. My wife kept telling me how beautiful it was as I looked straight ahead over my white knuckles.

Re: Yellowstone advice

How is the weather after Labor day? Thinking the off season would be the time to go, less tourists, motels cheaper?

Two years ago we planned to go to Yellowstone after a week in Custer. Watched the weather and there were snow flurries nearly everyday, so we went south to Rocky Mountain National Park. The aspens were turning and the elk were rutting and the crowds were terrible the third week of September. We gave up and went to Angel Fire.

But I did get to soak! We camped in the “Fountain of Youth” rv park just north of Thermopolis and soaked in their hot spring fed pool. I could have done a couple more days of that.

It just depends on the weather. There are certainly less tourists, but I camped so I couldn't tell you about the motel rates. I went the last week of September and inside Yellowstone the crowds weren't bad at all. Don't get me wrong, there are still plenty of people there, but it isn't what I would call crowded.

I went there about three years ago on my FZ09 around the same time. There were TONS of mainland Chinese tourists everywhere. Most of them had just purchased cowboy hats, boots and everyone had a large camera wrapped around their neck. Some of the local proprietors said their Asian tourist manners were very abrupt and brash. But the Chinese bring into substantial tourist money to Jackson Hole.
