Yellowstone means wildlife, and you'll be surprised how much of it is *not* distant - bison and elk in particular, but you can get lucky and see grizzlies and cubs reasonably close this time of year (be very careful!!). OTOH - some wildlife is distant, so maybe rent a good 300 to 400mm lens. That won't be too long a focal length.

For focusing that long lens - practice, practice, practice before your trip.

For the scenic, I agree that WA is mandatory - 20mm is usually wide  enough  for either Yellowstone or Tetons. If you have room in your kit for an ultra WA, you'll probably use it a few times. Consider renting.

When climbing in Tetons, that little 1650 should be ideal. Stop it down a bit. Think about taking along  CP and a ND filters for your wide angle lens(es).
