13 day road trip to the parks

need some help. we are retired with time on our side and we are planning a road trip to the parks. leaving reservations for hotels till we arrive places. time planned is september 15 to september 28, 2013. we will fly into slc and rent a car. see the tabernacle and leave the next day for jackson hole to hub and see the grand tetons and yellowstone for 4 days. next we will drive to cody and stay 1 night and then drive to rapid city to hub and see mount rushmore, crazy horse etc with a stay of 3 days. from there we drive to cheyenne and stay for 2 nights and then to denver and vail with a stay of 2 nights. are we missing anything else along the way? does our time frame for our stops seem doable? thanks blondd

Make sure you check out when things start closing. Mid to Late September is almost at the end of the season.


Be prepared for all kinds of weather, bring layers in case it gets cold.

It is also a little risky waiting to make reservations for YNP until you arrive, even though you're visiting during a "quieter" time, I'd hate for you not be able to find lodging.
