An exceptionally diverse landscape and varied wildlife have made Yellowstone National Park one of America's most popular parks.
Get outdoors at Grand Targhee Ski Resort and Ousel Falls Trail. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Grand Loop Road and Mud Volcano. Get out of town with these interesting Yellowstone National Park side-trips: Grizzly Outfitters Ski & Backcountry Sports (in Big Sky) and Grand Teton National Park (Jenny Lake Trail, String Lake, & more). On the 8th (Wed), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Mount Washburn. And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Firehole Canyon Drive, take in the natural beauty of Black Sand Basin, and don't miss a visit to Roosevelt Arch.

San Francisco to Yellowstone National Park is an approximately 6-hour combination of flight and car. You can also do a combination of flight, shuttle, and car; or drive. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from San Francisco to Yellowstone National Park due to the time zone difference. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from San Francisco in July since evenings lows in Yellowstone National Park dip to 39°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
