We will be attending a wedding next August in Coeur D'Alene ID(CDA). I am planning to roadtrip from Denver to CDA, camping at National Parks or National Forests along the way. Shortlisted so far:
Rocky Mountain National Park
Colorado Nat. Monument/Black Canyon of the Gunnison
Glacier National Park
It's not realistic to see all these in one trip but I want to get the best bang for the the buck. Last year we detoured off the plan to hit the Bear Tooth Highway and it was one of the best days of our trip.
I would be grateful for any recommendations or experiences in these areas. I am not familiar enough with the Grand Juction/Black Canyon of the Gunnison area to know if mid August camping is a good idea.
Any input is welcome.
