Definitely headed to Wyoming next week.

California is still on fire. I can work the trip from Ausitn to Yellowstone to be about 1,486 miles each way. If I went to Highway 1 and then over to Yosemite I'm looking at 2,000 miles. So Yosemite would be 1,000 miles shorter round trip, which means about 20 hours of less driving.

Seems weird to make that trip given we're going to Yellowstone in August, but we will likely have just one day there, so I'm thinking of going now and skipping all the famous stuff (Old Faithful, etc) that can be easily seen on a dayhike or drive through trip, and just heading straight into the backcountry. I'll probably do a little of Yellowstone and Grand Teton.
