I'm planning a one person roadtrip from Prior Lake, MN to Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado to meet up with some friends to climb Long's Peak. Google Maps puts it at 997 miles one-way, 14.5 hours driving time. Is this too far in one day considering the driving would be 2 days before the full-day climb?
I have family in Des Moines I could stay with for free making it a 2-day drive, 3.5hrs & 11.25hrs each day. Is this a better option?
What do you think?
Thanks for all your help!
