We are planning a road trip encompassing Yellowstone and other areas in early October this year. Really looking for ideas and advice about what is great to see and Feasible over about a week driving. Appreciate the assistance.
Actually, doing some more research---looking to drive from Omaha to Estes Park, CO and then head up to Jackson, WY to see the Grand Tetons and then head over to Yellowstone and then to the Little Big Horn National Park/Battlefield and then to Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota. We frequently will go to Mount Rushmore and surrounding areas and then probably head back to Nebraska.
We are not into hiking or rafting our fishing...really want to drive and see the sites with maybe some brief excursions at view points. This year more than others seem better for that sort of trip anyway. Also, hope to avoid alot of families and children with School supposedly being open by then.
Do NOT want to camp and will be looking for hotels along the way (like to plan ahead with those, also).
Hope that early October will be before the snow flies (at least heavily) in most places.
A couple years ago my wife and I completed a Road Trip around the Great Lakes, visiting numerous lighthouses, the Soo Locks, Shipwreck Museum and finished up on the North Shore in Minnesota around Duluth. Wonderful trip and we received some great advice from this forum!
Any advice or recommendations on additional sites/ideas appreciated greatly!
Have planned to purchase National Parks Pass and this year one needs to schedule dates/times of arrival with the pandemic.
