Which National Park?
February 16, 2013 at 11:41 PM
These are our vacation choices for this September. Which sounds better?

3 days in Yellowstone National Park and 3 days in Jackson Hole

OR

3 Days at Glacier National Park and 2 days at Silverwood (a theme park like Knotts but in Northern Idaho)

    I'd probably choose 3 Days at Glacier National Park and 2 days at Silverwood.  I've been to Yellow Stone and Glacier National Park, and both are beautiful parks to go to.  Jackson Hole is another park/ski resort and in September you're more than likely not going to have snow.  Silverwood is a theme park which might change up your vacation a little from nothing but nature parks, to national park with nature and beauty and theme park with rides and play.  Regardless I'm sure you can find fun in either choices.

    I would love to visit a national park every year. We probably have around 10-20 close enough by to visit, but none of them are really well-known. 

    I am hoping that I can start doing a field trip once per month and visit the national parks that are close to us. 

    I've never heard of Glacier, but i would love to visit Yellowstone..

    We took a 3 week National Parks adventure last year, and I would pick Glacier over Yellowstone.  They're both really cool, though.  We tent camped and had some difficulty at the St. Mary campsite in Glacier--almost lost the tent to wind.  :(

    The last time I was in Yellowstone, 15 years ago, it was the week after Labor Day and we were tenting it and it snowed and rained the entire trip. It was miserable, lol.
