From looking at alot of the post on this forum it looks like you need at least a year to plan a trip for lodging and now it is first of Dec. for a trip in Sept......do I even have time?
All I know is this will be a trip of a lifetime, not sure if we will get back. We are planning on driving from Albuquerque up to Rapid City,SD to see Mt.Rushmore. Then drive past Devil's tower and on to Cody.
Not sure if at this point we should set up base here or go on into the park to stay? Driving times and park fees in and out. Also worried that it's too late to get lodging inside the park and then the hubby adds...(I don't want to feel like we are camping...I want to eat at a resturant every night) (We do alot of camping,so it's nothing against it) and I'm not sure if he gets the National Park thing...no T.V.'s,no computers.
The scenic drives near Cody sound wonderful and I wouldn't want to miss out. We plan on leaving the park through Jackson so we can also spend a couple of nights seeing Grand Tetons NP. Before heading home.
Now this is where I panic and wait for calmer heads with good advice(like breathe,it will be alright) to show me the way. Any advice at this point would be most welcomed. Thanks in advance.
