Our reservations are at Old Faithful Lodge, I believe. Looking forward to staying there after looking the place over back a few years ago!
There are a number of great places on your fall trip, that I absolutely love. We loved Devil's Tower, so interesting to be able to hear climbers that are halfway up like they were in the same room.
Sounds like a short one to me. :-)Day 34 Drive 355 miles ...yeah...I know...a long driving day!
I hope that one works out for you, that you can drive Trail Ridge Road! It's funny, I've been to RMNP twice and we were able to drive Trail Ridge Road on both trips. Yet I've known a few people who take 2 or 3 trips to the park before they can finally do that road. Granted, on both trips, we were rained and sleeted upon when at the top of the road. One trip, they closed the road right after we got back to our campsite. Go figure!Days 26-29 Explore Rocky Mountain National Park from East side near Estes Park
Days 30-33 Explore Rocky Mountain National Park from West side
The campground in Capitol Reef is so pretty, surrounded by orchards. Lots of hiking, for sure! In the fall, the temperatures should be perfect for that! When I was a teen, our family hiked to "the tanks" as they are known. Hot hike, good soak, cooler hike back since we were still wet.Day 40-41 Spend time in Torrey, Utah area including Capitol Reef
Day 42-51 Move into Capitol Reef to camp and our friends head home. We will relax & hike!
