Denver to Yellowstone and more?
My boyfriend and I want to go to Yellowstone and four corners this spring break. We will be leaving this coming wednesday... All we know is we want to see Yellowstone and four corners, but we feel like we should make some stops on the way. I am not from the US and he is not from the midwest, so we have no clue on what is a legit beautiful and/or fun place to visit. Our time frame is Wednesday to Sunday. Any help? suggestions? tips?
Thanks so much!
Mmm, Yellowstone ?
Hello and welcome to the R.T.A. forums !
I think with just 5 days and the current conditions at Yellowstone you might be better off keeping your trip in the Four corners region.
However there are some fantastic parks to visit such as Black canyon, Mesa Verde , Arches, and Colorado NM at Grand junction which could create a nice loop trip, Or you could head to Four corners and onto the South rim of the Grand canyon and back through Monument valley.
I will second that recommendation. Arches National Park, Natural Bridges, Mesa Verde and Monument Valley in the Four Corners area are enough for one trip.
Keep Yellowstone on your list but try a different season. My favorite time of year for Yellowstone is late September or early October when the summer crowds are gone. Here are some photos from a trip a few years back.
