Michelle,
It has been a warmer winter than we expected here so spring is coming early we think. If you are alright taking a bus, you can fly into Billings but that is about 2-3 hours away. Bozeman is your best bet. From there you would go east to Livingston, where I am, and then south to Yellowstone Park. Livingston has cheaper $ hotels if you didn't want to stay with someone here, however the town south of here, on the edge of the park is Gardiner, and it should have some rooms as well. If you'd two made it over a weekend I could be persuaded to give you two a ride to the park if you helped out with fuel. As far as preparedness, it all depends on what you want to do. There is still going to be a lot of snow in the park still and the big road through is going to be closed more than likely, so you will only be able to get from Gardiner --> to Mammoth --> to Lamar Valley --> to Cooke City. Let me know if any of this helped.

We will be there for 2.5 days. We will stay in Gardiner for the first night and West Yellowstone for the second night.

Does anyone have any suggestions for my itinerary? I'm thinking the first day we will drive to Lamar Valley and Mammoth. The second day we will drive to Mammoth.
