Hi All, I am starting to plan my summer 2015 National Park road trip to help me continue on my quest to see all of the US National Parks. We will be going most likely last week of July and first week of August. I am debating either renting a travel trailer or alternating camping/hotel stays on the trip. I believe that each would offer benefits but any thoughts let me know.
Generally prefer off the beaten path types of activities and hiking but open to suggestions. We will not be stopping at Yellowstone since we spent a week there last summer.
Route: Boise to Grand Tetons NP, Grand Tetons to Glacier NP, Glacier to Banff NP, Banff to Nez Perce Historical Park, Nez Perce to Stanley, ID (Open to McCall area mostly want to relax and enjoy the lake in the summer)
1. Recommendations on time spent in each park?
2. Places to stay?
3. Top things to do within each park?
4. Key side trips/road side attractions? Hells Canyon?
5. Any other awesome ideas?
