    I had such a good time in Baniff, Glacier National Park. Yellowstone and Jackson Hole. The trip was well organized. The driver was friendly. The group leader picked great restaurants, he made the tour fun. The people on the tour were great. There were 28 on our tour I think that was a great size.
