Help on best things to see West Yellowstone

Looking for information on the best tour to take through Yellowstone on our way to Lake Louise this August 2018. We will be traveling from Idaho Falls North. We would like to spend an entire day touring around in our car and spend the night in Bozeman. Please give us some tips on must see as well as a route for those of you who have been there before. We are open to traveling some backroads North if the scenery is worth it... Thanks

This will take you a full day. Stay in Gardiner if possible and not add drive time to Bozeman.

It is 2 hours from Idaho Falls to West Yellowstone entrance.

Head from there to Old Faithful and tour geysers and thermals then back track to Madison junction and drive to Canyon stopping at Artist Point, Hayden valley and over Dunraven pass to Lamar valley and then to Mammoth and exit out north entrance and spend night in Gardiner. You could also go from OF to West Thumb to Lake and north but will add time.

Here is a map of the park.

Travel is slow if 25 miles from Point A to Point B allow 50 minutes to drive.
