Default Trip report, DFW-Yellowstone

Just got back from a GREAT 6 day trip to Yellowstone (stayed in West Yellowstone) and thought I'd share a few pictures. Approx 1000 miles/6 hrs flying each way and 600 miles of driving thru the Yellowstone and Grand Titan National Parks, also spent a day in Jackson Hole. What a great trip, wife is already planning the next adventure!
A nice break from the scorching TX temps was welcome, 39 deg in the morning, high of 80 in the afternoon!
Because Osh was not happening and we both planned the week off, we decided on Yellowstone as we had never been there.
Highly recommend KWYS airport, no fees, self serve fuel, rental car PU at the small FBO, super friendly folks!

Walt looks like you had a great trip and thanks for posting some pics.

P.S. Thanks for staying in the car near the Buffalo. I can't tell you how many reports here in Wyoming we hear about people trying to pet them... lol The dumbest one being some hippie types trying to put a baby one in their car.

A snapshot of my FF plan thru the mountains, we actually went in at about 11.5 zigzagging up the canyons but decided to go to 13.5 on the way home (we also had a tailwind all the way home).
