GO north to I-90 then GO WEST
I-90 to HWY 287 South (After Bosseman/Belgrade Montana)
Hwy 287 S.....dead ends at HWY 191...go south 10/12 miles to west yellowstone


Is it time for your medication or mine?

My advise would be you’ll miss such spectacular views....
Some Westerners would say there aren’t any mountains from NC until you get near Yellowstone.

My wife had the same issues so when we started running routes with drop-offs, she'd go back and sit at the dinette. Now she drives these routes with the 43' coach and full size pickup toad and doesn't turn a hair. Just a question of getting used to it, SLOWLY.

Roads and Routes would have been a better sub forum.

OP has a 5th wheel.

Sitting at the dinette table probably NOT going to resolve issue [emoticon]

Flattest Route

Also, Google EARTH has a elevation feature. Set a route and right-click on the blue line. Looks like this.

It’s pretty flat between NC and Montana. Once you reach the eastern edge of the Rockies it’s pretty tough to keep going west from that point without going through mountains. With your fear of heights maybe you should reconsider a trip to the western U.S.

Sorry - But - You do understand that Yellowstone is in the Rocky Mountains!

Go to Wiki to see that for the most part YNP is a Mile High with and Average of 8,000 feet soooooo.....

So ..........you will be at your lowest point a Mile High in the park! The good thing is that everything else is pretty high so it is not that big a deal. [emoticon]

Not sure if this route is completely free of all perials along the way but IMHO it is extremely Tame - https://www.bing.com/maps?osid=58fdbbcc-........8~-99.28617&lvl=5&v=2&sV=2&form=S00027
- Look it over to see if it might work - it Comes into Jackson along the River then up through the Tetons to Old Faithful.

Hope this helps,
