Rhonda’s nephew is getting married this June in Denver. We’re going to the wedding, and want to spend some time out west. We’ve been to the Rocky Mountain National Park. It was awesome. We enjoyed it. And we’d love to see it again. Bonnie, Rhonda’s sister, is planning on going to Yellowstone. I’ve never been there, but have always wanted to go.

Decisions, decisions, decisions . . . the Rockies or Yellowstone? If money was not an object for you, what would you do?

    If money wasn’t an object, BOTH .

    If money was no object and sense you have already been to the rocky mountains you should try yellowstone. something new and exciting that you haven’t done yet.
    Since I never been to either I would rather go to yellowstone just to see the wildlife I like the animals.

    Sam and Rhonda:

    I would highly suggest that you take advantage of the closeness to Yellowstone NP to visit there and many sites in between. YNP is really neat and has a lot of different sites and animals to see. We saw deer, bear, moose and bison. The water is spectacular.

    On the way to YNP, is Casper, WY and Independence Rock along with other sites telling the story of the settling of the west. There is also Grand Teton NP just south of YNP. It is fascinating also.

    I really like RMNP, but you are too close to not take the trip up to YNP.

    If you are renting a car, a neat suggestion is to rent a vehicle from a Toyota dealership. It is similar in price, but you only pay sales tax and not all the airport tax. We rented a Prius in Fort Collins and we averaged 44 MPG for 3600 miles summer before last.

    Any questions, let me know.
