All advice would be gratefully received and appreciated. Sorry for so many questions, I've usually researched more before posting questions but this Road Trip is a very recent change of plan and we hope to book soon in order to capitalise on early booking flight costs.
I'm currently researching an approx 14 night stay early Sept 2013 (after Labor Day) that takes in Grand Teton NP, Yellowstone NP, Mt Rushmore & Estes/Rocky Mountain NPs. As we'd be flying from the UK, I believe that Salt Lake City and Denver would be the airports to use. With the research I've already done, I can see that there are some long drives in between places and would take advice of suitable night stopovers if you thought they were necessary.
Other advice needed:
1) Which way round should we do the trip - begin with SLC or Denver? Should we allow weather averages in Nat Parks to influence this? Should we allocate time to stay in the cities?
2) I'm thinking maybe 4 nights in each of Grand Teton and Yellowstone but not sure how much to allow other places. Opinions welcomed.
Thank you to all who can help.
