I am an outdoor loving soon to be 48 year old women taking our 4 kids on a cross country RV trip. Three daughters 15,14,12 and our son 9. My hubby will be flying to various locations to spend time with us but will not make the majority of the trip
I am leaving Maryland on June 14 and first camping reservation is:
June 21-22 (2 nights) Great Sand Dunes NP-CO
June 23-26 (4 nights) Prospectors CG in Canon City CO We plan on rafting, train ride, giant swing and all of the other fun things to do around Royal Gorge.
June 27-30 (4nights) Boyd Lake state park-Hubby is flying into Denver airport from Maryland to enjoy a few days with the family-I'll also have somebody to drink a beer with
I think I'll need it!
July 1 Hubby is flying out of Denver airport and 78 y.o mother is flying in to spend the next several weeks with us (78 but in great shape-totally mobile) great-now I have 5 kids
July 1-5 (5 nights) Rocky Mountain NP staying at Winding River CG (Grand Lake)
July 6 drive from RMNP to Grand Tetons 498 miles-didn't want to try to make it to Tetons in one day-will spend the night somewhere
July 7-10 (4 nights) Grand Tetons Colter Bay CG
July 11-14 (4 nights) Yellowstone staying at Fishing Bridge
July 15-18 (4 nights) Yellowstone RV park in Gardiner MT
July 19 drive from Gardiner MT to West Glacier 417 miles-didn't want to push it to West Glacier in one day-will spend the night somewhere
July 20-22 (3 nights) Glacier NP staying at Fish Creek CG (west Glacier)
From West Glacier we want to head North to Banff and Jasper NP don't know how long we want to stay or what CG. Suggestions please!! After visiting Banff and Jasper my mom will fly out of Calgary back to Maryland. Hubby may fly into Calgary-(ahh another beer) and drive back to Maryland with us. I just need to have the kids home by August 16th so they can get ready for school to start on the 24th
Any tips or suggestions for Banff and Jasper? From Banff/Jasper to Maryland any "must see" area's or routes?
I know there are many experienced travelers out there-Have I forgotten anything? I welcome any suggestion or comments you may have!
