  1. Default Colorado springs to Somewhere (4 days road trip)

    Three of us (friends, all in mid 20's) are planning to go on a road trip on 4th of July weekend (Leaving Friday evening and back on Wednesday Morning)

    Ideal roadtrip would be somewhere in the north or northeast. I have seen most of Colorado, New Mexico and been to yellowstone. I was thinking about driving to Minneapolis and back. Other places are Montana or North Dakota.

    We just want to drive and stop at intersesting sites, take easy hikes (1-2 mile) and take lots of pictures.

    Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

    Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum! I really love the Badlands -- be sure to listen to the Navajo radio stations on the AM dial! Here is a field report from the area.

    Happy Planning!

  3. Default SD is the place to go

    Hi,

    I agree with Mark. Southwest SD has so much to do. Besides the Badlands, there is Wind Cave NP, Jewel Cave and Mt. Rushmore. Deadwood is also a lot of fun. On the way you could see Devil's Tower in northeast WY.

    I have a great interest in Native American culture also, in fact, at the end of my wedding ceromony last fall, the minister had a Native America blessing. It was very spiritual and inspiring.

    Hope you have a fun trip.

    Thanks so much Mark and Diana. South Dakota it is. Tentative plan is to drive to Devils Tower, WY first. Then go to Deadwood --> Mount Rushmore --> Jewel Cave NP --> Wind Cave NP --> Badlands NP.

    then return through Nebraska and Kansas.
