I assume you'll be going from Driggs to Jackson Hole and then up into GT? If so, Jackson Hole has a big variety of restaurants, both traditional as well as a few fast food joints. Finding breakfast options there should not be a problem at all.


If, on the other hand, you're heading up to West Yellowstone, and accessing GT via Yellowstone, you'll find some options in West Yellowstone, though not as many as Jackson Hole. The Mcdonalds there is open for breakfast, and I assume some of the traditional restaurants are as well.

Finding something open in the other small towns in the area is hit or miss. Most are tiny towns, but truck stops and travel center gas stations pop up here and there, some of which have dining rooms or cafeterias or in house fast food.

Jackson Hole is your best bet though.

The only people that we could find that do a single day rafting trip in the Grand Canyon departs from Peach Springs, Arizona, 3-4 hours from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, and about the same from Sedona.  Check out this link to Hualapai Tourism.  There you can find out all the details for your day trip.

Typically there are much longer trips through the Grand Canyon, lasting up to several weeks.  These usually require careful planning and advanced notice.  You are starting to enter into rafting country as you head North into Utah.  There you can find trips all over the state in durations ranging from day trips all the way through to lengthy adventures!

It depends on the Amtrak stop you use and the things you want to do in the area. There is one stop in East Glacier, one in Essex, one in West Glacier and one in Whitefish. Of all of the stops, Whitefish is the best with the most ammenities and has a rental car location right in the Amtrak depot. Although, several rental companies will deliver to the depot from Whitefish or Kalispell. There are so many nice things to do and visit all around the park area so it would be ideal to have a rental car.

Lester was born in Southern California in the early 60’s in what started out as a rural area. He watched the exponential grow all around him thought the 60’s and 70’s. In fact one of his fond early childhood memories was playing in a corn field across from his house that later became the high school he graduated from. Lester loved camping and the mountains from an early age so when the time came for college Lester moved some 700 miles north and attended Humboldt State University. He graduated with a B.S. in Natural Resources, Planning and Interpretation in 1984.
