黃石與冰河國家公園行程 9/2009

最近要帶父母開車前往Yellowstone、Glacier National Park、Waterton National Park,進行兩星期的跨國road trip
全程預計開3500哩,從San Jose一路開去再開回來
在SJ的Hertz local edition租了一台SUV (Toyota Rav4)
使用了AAA的15% off及$50 off coupon之後,租一個月只要$620左右,而且是無限哩程
比只租兩個星期便宜 (一星期要$280,而且有限制每週只能開800哩,超過的部份每哩0.25,所以會再加$400)
2哩外的SJC機場,租SUV一星期就要$600,含無限哩程。價差非常大!

這台車子有內建mp3 player,而且可以一次放6張CD進去,所以我準備了3張data CD,每張有600MB的懷舊mp3,總共有30小時的音樂,長程在山區開車就不怕無聊了

day 1: San Jose-> South Lake Tahoe (hiking) -> Carson city (hotspring) -> 宿Winnemucca, NV
day 2: Winnemucca -> Salt Lake City (mormon temple) -> 宿Salt Lake City
day 3: Salt Lake City (Copper mine) -> Snake river(hiking) -> Grand Teton National park -> 宿Colter Bay Lodge

day 5: Yellowstone (Old faithful, geyser basin) 宿Grant village
day 6: Yellowstone (Canyon, Norris, Mammoth) 宿 Grant Village
day 7: Yellowstone (Lake, Tower falls) -> Beartooth highway -> 宿Helena, MT
day 8: Helena -> Glacier National Park (Many Glacier area) -> 宿Swift Current Inn
day 9: Waterton national park (Alberta, Canada) -> 宿Swift Current Inn
day 10: Glacier national park (Many Glacier, St Marys area, Logan Pass) -> 宿Rising Sun Motor Inn
day 11: Glacier National Park (Logan Pass, Lake McDonald, Apgar) ->宿Kalispell, MT

兩個禮拜這樣玩不會太操嗎? :p

還好啦 :D
前三天和後三天最多每天只開400哩
要配合老人的行程
其實不會太糟啦
畢竟兩大公園都各玩4天

板大,小妹路過,看到您安排的行程跟我八月初去黃石的行程很像,美麗快樂的回憶就又湧上心頭:)
Anyway,言歸正傳,有兩個地方想提供小小心得給版大參考。黃石西段有好幾個小路段在修路,Madson to Norris晚上八點以後會封路,update路況我覺得挺重要的;另外day6行程已到北邊的Mommath,傍晚要再殺回位於南邊的住宿點Grant Village可能要一至兩個鐘頭:)
以上分享,也希望您有個愉快的旅程:)

感謝你的留言。其實從8/17/2009開始,Madison to Norris是24小時完全關閉的,直到今年12月雪季以後才會再開放。園方要把整個橋折掉,所以會對旅客造成相當大的不便。
我當年去黃石的時候也是每個地方都住一兩天,這次帶父母不想移動了,比較悠閒。開來開去也ok的啦,反正我租的SUV是無限哩程的 :D

太厲害了!我也很愛邊開邊玩,只是苦無長假。下次要出門旅行一定要好好請教你才是!不知道你有沒有去過歐洲旅行,我一直想帶父母去歐洲說?
