Planning to drive to Yellowstone from Florida in August 2011. Think we will be entering thru East entrance. Only have 2-3 days for our stay. Need to head out at North entrance toward Washington. Any suggestions for what would be our best way to use those 2-3 days? Should we go towards Old Faithful or head up towards Tower Falls?

Not to do Old Faithful and the historic inn there a disservice, but I'd personally head up to the Tower falls region, yes, and get your boots on to hike 10,243-foot Mt. Washburn. The Chittenden Road trailhead offers a steadier climb, while the Dunraven Pass approach is a bit steeper with some fun switchbacks. Either way, look for killer views of the park, the distant Tetons, and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River. I think this option also offers a more logical route past Lake Yellowstone and up toward the Mammoth Springs area at the NW corner of the park. Sounds like a fun trip. If you're still looking for a place to stay, don't forget the historic lodging at Lake Yellowstone Hotel! http://bit.ly/ihs0pc
