These are trips we took over the Fourth of July week in 2007 and 2009. I was concerned about the crowds, more about them below, but it turned out to not be so bad. Both the 2007 and 2009 trips were great. I am an amateur photographer so that meant getting up early and going out late to get the best light and wildlife action. We had been to Yellowstone once before before we had kids and loved it. Unfortunately, we did not make it to the Grand Tetons on that first trip, but this time around were made it.
I thought that the Grand Tetons National Park was going to be more like the National Parks on the East coast, crowded and over commercialized. There were some aspects of both of these, but I was blown away by the beauty and the amount of wildlife. We saw more wildlife in the Grand Tetons than we did in Yellowstone on this particular trip. Like any National Park or attraction for that matter, if you get out early or get more than a few hundred yards from the paved roads, you feel like you have the whole park to yourself.
