Should we make reservations in advance if we can get them?

We went to the New England area without reservations for 7 weeks and only had trouble at one place on Columbus Day but I am not familiar with a trip out West.

Thanks for any help you can provide.
Travel out West in the Summer (August) should IMHO be in the Mountains - Cooler - Beautiful - BIG -

In your Coach you can go anywhere - and survive without Hook-Ups -- So making reservations is not the way to Travel (JMHO) - A day ahead - on a weekend - During a Holiday - or A Have To Be location - Yes but the rest of the time - WHY?.

IMHO, I'd skip the State of Utah other than to drive through places and save it for October or later in the Year - Less crowded - Cooler - Still Beautiful - and IMHO lends itself more to travel in the Cooler season.

So get yourself into some Mountains - Colorado/Wyoming/Montana - then begin the slow Journey around - I'd look at getting to YNP/Tetons/Jackson/Cody in August and September then rolling south, so as to be in Colorado for the last two weeks of September - https://lynn.smugmug.com/Travel/Colo...pens/i-tsVRkXg - Those Aspen are to die for - are located in almost everypart of the state and are Made for the Explorer in all of us.

The reality is that you will be back - you will have a chance to see all of this again and again - so why make it even a Little unpleasant, Make the Weather part of the Plan - ?

If any of this makes sense to you get back to us -- there will be a ton of Good ADVICE.
