Sunday September 9 to Friday September 14, 2018
TT West 2018 invades the land of the grizzly bear as we start in Boise, Idaho, visit Sun Valley, Idaho, explore Yellowstone National Park for our Grizzly Encounter, and finally into the Grand Tetons. The drive ends in Jackson, Wyoming after 850+ miles of fun.
TT West starts Sunday September 9, 2018 in the afternoon with two separate optional events being offered. The first is a 40-mile round trip drive to Bogus Basin Recreation Area. The road to Bogus Basin has lots of twisties snd once there, several summer activities are available including mountain biking, ski lift rides, hiking, downhill coaster, water slide, and refreshments. At 6:00 p.m. the optional drive will end at the second optional event, a cook-out BBQ.
The Bogus Basin drive and BBQ are separate optional events, so late arrivals to Boise can bypass the drive and go directly to the BBQ. Food, soft drinks, and margaritas will be provided. Attendees to the BBQ are also encouraged to bring some of their favoriite home town craft beer to swap and share with others.
Monday September 10, 2018 will start with TT West 2018 sign-in at the Boise Audi dealership. Then we will have fun with more twisties along a 195 mile drive through Boise National Forest and the Sawtooth National Recreation Area to Ketchum/Sun Valley via ID 21 with multiple stops along the way.
On Tuesday September 11, 2018 we leave Sun Valley for a 260 mile drive to the village of West Yellowstone which is the gateway to the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Along the way this day there will be a stop at the Craters of the Moon National Monument lava fields.
Wednesday September 12, 2018 is a 220 circlular route that starts on scenic and twisty route US 191 through the Gallatin River Canyon (‘A River Runs Through It’ was filmed here!) to the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Montana. Next, we see and learn about grizzly bears at the Montana Grizzly Encounter just east of Bozeman. We complete the circle to West Yellowstone via the Yellowstone National Park north entrance (US 89) at Gardiner.
Thursday September 13, 2018 guests are on their own for sightseeing the geysers, hot springs, buffalo, elk, moose, grizzly bears, and other natural wonders in Yellowstone National Park. Early risers can go to the Lamar Valley in the northeast portion of the park for wildlife viewing, although wildlife will be seen throughout the park. The southeast section of the park has an incredible array of hot springs and geysers that includes Old Faithful.
On Friday September 14, 2018, our final day of the event the last drive will be 130 miles through Yellowstone National Park to the park’s south entrance and then in Grand Teton National Park. Plan for a stop at the Visitor Center in Colter Bay Village for its excellent Native American museum and then it’s on to lunch at Jackson Lake Lodge. Finally, there will be lots more to see in Grand Teton National Park where we will stop at the Signal Mountain Lodge and the Jenny Lake Visitor Center. TT West 2018 will conclude that evening with a farewell group dinner in Jackson, Wyoming.
