The Best Tips For Yellowstone When Visiting From West Yellowstone

When I was researching about the busiest months to go to Yellowstone, I was worried.  Most people visited the place during the summer months of June, July, and August.  Nearing beginning of October, all the cabins in Yellowstone were starting to close, the north, northeast, and east entrances were closed, and the weather would drop to like 1 degree Celsius.  Would the roads be too slippery to drive?  Would there be more bears coming out in the wild?

Turns out, when we went during early October, it was the perfect time to go, and I wasn’t even exaggerating.  The number of people there was just right – you were always able to find a parking spot, and there were just enough people to not feel you were deserted and that you were going to be safe, but still had plenty of space to move around and take photos.

Then there’s the weather.  The weather was perfect.  Even in the afternoon, you could get by with a t-shirt.  It was only until a little before sunset when you would start to feel chilly.  That’s when you will need to wear a jacket.

All things considered, I’d say our trip to Yellowstone was perfect in terms of pacing, timing, and the overall planning of the trip, and I want to share my tips with you to ensure you have a good time there as well.
