Looks like your all set. I'm sure you have a bag or 2 to pack that stuff around....

I do a backpack/sling two back pack setup.

I'm thinking about some NDs now.

How are you liking that 150-500?

Try to stay in the parks themselves. You cut down on driving time and get to your destinations easier. Colter Bay Cabins in Grand Teton are great. So are the Roosevelt Cabins and several of the lodges in Yellowstone.

I'd also consider more storage depending on how long you plan to stay.

Some more info:

I'll wave if I cross paths. We're going up there for a "long weekend" around the 4th of July. We'll be doing the tent camping thing around the Tetons at a couple different places and doing some day trips. The hot air balloon launch sounds cool as well.

I'm actually trying to figure out what backpack setup to go with for this trip. Think I decided on the Lowepro Fastpack 350. Can't wait!!

If you are tenting in Teton, Jenny Lake campground and Colter Bay campground are tough to beat.
