This is my first post, I wish I had found this forum sooner!
On October 10th - a couple of weeks time - my family and I are attending a wedding in Wisconsin. From there we want to optimize out trip to the U.S. and go on a road trip, heading west and ending up in Yellowstone. From there we will see what time we have left and decide where to go, possibly south to Monument Valley/Grand Canyon if possible.
My question is, what is the best way to go about accommodation? Is it best to book in advance and plan where to stay or, at this time of year, is it easy to find a motel room on the same day?
I want the security of having a room yet don't want the pressure of having to make a certain place in a certain time in case of delays occurring which they inevitably will.
I would welcome any and all advice please!
