Hi everyone. I am planning a road trip from my small community in central Wisconsin to Denver, CO to visit some friends. Also, I have made plans to head up to Yellowstone and enjoy some scenic driving through there. I have 12 days from Monday through to the next Friday.
I plan on driving with a buddy of mine straight from Wisconsin to Denver, but I wouldn't mind stopping somewhere, possibly in the Black Hills on the trip back?
Is this a reasonable time of year in the Denver area, is it cold or warm? Are the campgrounds open in the Denver area? Is a stop in Yellowstone reasonable? Any other things I should be worried about when driving through the mountains?
I have never been west before and I am looking for a great road trip outside of my home state of Wisconsin. I have traveled from Florida and back twice. And been to Fargo, ND in January, the worst time of year to be there. Any insight would be great/input is welcome!
