we will be taking a trip to some of the National Parks in mid May of 2015 and would like some advice.-- We have alotted ourselves 2 months of travel which will include visits to family and friends. We will start out our trip to the parks, starting with Yosemite. Our itinerary thus far looks like this, Yesemite, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, Zion Park, Yellowstone and lastly, Mesa Verde. My question/s is/are how many days to spend in each park, how many days to alot for travel,-- by car and most likely a flight to one or two of them.
As far as accomodations are concerned, we don't intend onstaying inside the parks, but somewhere not too far away. Do we have to make reservations in advance or can we check in as we go?
We will start out from Calfornia - Yosemite. Where is the best place to fly to? I'm assuming San Francisco.(?)
I read in a AAA guide that to enter Yellowstone the best place is to enter the north entrance which is in Montana. I had thought of flying to Wyoming from Utah and renting a car to get to the park. What should we do?
any and all advice is welcome.
