Yellowstone in summer?

Still speculating here. If everything falls into place this summer I'll have ten weeks free.

San Antonio, friends in New Mexico, Las Vegas, Death Valley, Yosemite, big trees in California to Eureka CA on the North California coast works out to ~2,100 miles.

Assuming I accomplished that in six weeks or less, and still felt like it, I could go 80 miles north up the Pacific Coast and then hang a right towards the south entrance to Yellowstone via Grant's Pass, then north through Yellowstone to a good friend's house in Great Falls MT would add about 1,300 miles, ballparking 3,500 miles in ten weeks for the whole trip. Fifty miles a day.

That would be absolutely epic if I could pull it all off.

I know Yellowstone, and probably Yosemite, are packed in summer, can one cross these parks without prior reservations? Usual MO for me would be to sleep on the ground outside.
