I was scheduled for a conference in Denver the first week in Sept., bought non-refundable air tickets, conference cancelled. Thought I'd go anyway, rent a car, go north to places I've never been like the Black Hills, Devil's Tower, etc. I probably wouldn't have picked this week for a trip, but that's what I have, so I want to make the most of it. I'd welcome information on routes, lodging, likely weather, places to eat, places not to miss, and all the other things that the folks here know about this area that I don't. I wouldn't dare call myself a photographer, but I like to take pictures, mostly of scenery. Would reservations for lodgings be necessary, or can I count on finding a place to stay wherever I am at the end of a day?
I'm starting to get excited!
Thanks in advance for your help and advice.
