I am planning to go to Jackson WY for almost 3 weeks in August
I will go with wife, 2 and 4 year old daughters (as well as potentially aunt and cousin).
Apart from the usual "relaxed tourist" stuff I would like (negotiating with wife) to make a couple of full day or overnight climbs to the Tetons as well as a overnight or two night rock climb to the Cirgue of Towers.
I would like to save money on accommodation and I suppose renting a short term apartment condo could be one idea. I am considering the option of camping but I am not sure how it would fly with wife...
I'd like to know if it would make sense to rent car for the entire period or if it could be interesting to rent it only for the initial and final portion of the stay. Alternatively if public transportation there would be convenient or not.
I suppose that the closer I will stay to Jackson town itself I could spend more on accommodation and maybe less on transportation...
I am from Brazil so even if I would like to save money I also want to take advantage of the time (day off from work) and money invested in the airfare and such so if some extra money has to be spent to enjoy more the stay I would definitely go that direction.
I will get a couple of books soon (Moon one and another one on easy hikes/trails) nevertheless I wanted some advices from the kind and competent TS friends.
Finally I am looking at guides for climbing, collected a lot of information regarding Exum Guides and wondering if there are other solutions.
It would be awesome if I could take wife and daughters to the Cirque of Towers however I am not sure if it will be too much hiking or not... I and wife could carry them for a big portion of the hike on specific backpack but I guess we would need help from others to carry tent, food and such.
