Need some input regarding drive from YNP to Cody. See partial itinerary & notes below...
Day 5 (6/12)--explore the area north of Canyon Lodge, exit the NE entrance, drive the Beartooth Hwy & Chief Joseph Hwy to Cody, may do rodeo but depends upon time we arrive to town, overnight in Cody at The Cody Hotel
Day 6 (6/13)--visit the Buffalo Bill Museum, go to the shooting range which has replicas of old west guns, go to the rodeo if we didn't visit the night prior, overnight at The Cody Hotel
Day 7 (6/14)--leave Cody, drive back through YNP through the East Entrance by Yellowstone Lake & West Thumb enroute to GTNP with overnight at Signal Mt Lodge
Do we drive the entire Beartooth Hwy to Red Lodge & then backtrack to the Chief Joseph Scenic Hwy or do we drive a portion of the Beartooth to Chief Joseph or skip Chief Joseph by heading south to Cody once we arrive in Red Lodge?
Have any of the TA experts been to the Japanese American Internment Camp (Heart Mountain Relocation Center)? We all have an interest in WW2 history & this has tweaked our interest. Wondering if it is worth our time to stop while enroute to Cody from the Red Lodge area.
Any dining recommendations for dinner one of the nights we are staying in Cody? How about a local bakery? Thanks in advance for any help!
