Yellowstone and Grand tetons

by /bio/travlr »

Hi, We are planning a trip to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons in June. We will be landing in Idaho Falls, so hoping to get into the park from the west entrance. We have a week in total and thinking we might do 5 days in Yellowstone and the last two in Grand Tetons. Our current itinerary is 
day 1: Start driving north towards Gardiner (viist Norris Geyser, Mammoth, Lamar valley and stay at Gardiner)
Day 2: Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and Hayden Valley (stay at Lake/Canyon)
Day 3:  Yellowstone Lake (stay at Lake/canyon) 
Day 4: Old Faithful and surrounding areas
Day 5: Snake River rafting and Stay at Jackson 
Day 6: Spend the day at Grand tetons and Stay at Jackson
Day 7: Spend the day at Grand Tetons and drive back to Idaho Falls

Wanted to also see the Beartooth highway, but it looks like it might be quite a drive on day 1 if we started from Idaho Springs and spent the night at Red Lodge instead of stopping at Gardiner. Suggestions/ideas on if/how we might be able to include Beartooth highway in the itinerary. Other itinerary suggestions on places to see/stay also welcome

Thanks for your time
