We are from Sydney, Australia and are planning a 3 weeks driving visit in April next year.
I would like to get some feedback about the weather and driving conditions we are likely to experience and also what major attractions (National Parks and Tourist Sites )will be closed or opened.
Our plan is to fly into Los Angeles and our first stop would be Flagstaff and spend a few days there going through the Grand Canyon. Next would be to get to Denver and take a couple of days to drive there. My wife would like to visit some of the old west attractions so we would likely look at spending a day or two in Cheyenne.
The next part I am not sure if it is worth the drive up to Cody and visit Yellowstone National Park. This would be around mid April and from what I have read most parts would still be closed from winter.
We would then head back via Salt Lake City and Las Vegas (spending 2-3 days in each place).
I would appreciate any comments. I have driven in USA a lot on the eastern coast and along the west coast and we though going through and around the Rockies would be a great experience. But I am a bit cautious about the weather and its impact on driving and tourist attractions.
