re: Summer trip to Banff National park - bayoubengals88
More like "excellent" I paid $399 from BTR to YYC...if you know anything about BTR, that's pretty damn incredible. There's a bus that takes you to Banff and back. $65 rountrip I think. I'll be going this route instead of renting a car....

re: Summer trip to Banff National park - bayoubengals88
Flying to Denver will only waste your time. While some of the drive will be beautiful, most of it will feel desolate and gravel roads for long stretches could be unavoidable (for shortest route). Fly into Bozeman if you want to drive to Glacier. Also, a day in Glacier will likely be the biggest ...

re: Anyone ever been to Divide, CO? - bayoubengals88
Well shit, that changes everything! You've got to go skiing. Do ya'll ski? Many of the high passes are closed until May or later. You can still visit Denver and Ouray/Telluride would be lovely in the winter if you can get to them... Most of Rocky Mountain National Park will be closed. If y...

re: Anyone ever been to Divide, CO? - bayoubengals88

re: You have 14 days to backpack, day hike, and explore the American west - bayoubengals88
I've reversed the route so that we'll end in CO. That 2-3 week difference should help a lot. Utah folks, it's a bit too much desert for me based on pics. I hope I love it as much as you all do. ...

re: You have 14 days to backpack, day hike, and explore the American west - bayoubengals88
Not ruling it out. I've been five times, but I've never seen Telluride, Ouray, Durango. I have this huge desire to see Lake Tahoe though, and to backpack Yosemite (went in 09 but was limited). I made up a crazy road trip last night with stops in Raton, Estes Park, Salt Lake, Lake Tahoe, Yosem...
