Going up the spine of the Rockies

We start our next adventure a week from today.
- After visiting friends in Colorado Springs, our first stop will be Rocky Mountain National Park for a week. We plan to stay at Glacier Basin. We are chancing a walk-in on loop A or B, since the sites that can be booked in advance don't allow generators.
- Next stop will be Banff National Park several days later, for a at least a week. 'Have done some research, but have no reservations or definite plans yet.
- Following Banff will be Waterton Lakes NP, Glacier for at least a week, Yellowstone for at least a week, maybe a short stop in the Tetons, then home.

We expect to be gone six weeks to two months, and will probably be leaving some places, like Glacier, just before they close down for the season.

Any comments, recommendations or advice are welcome.

Best regards,

I did part of this trip in July. We had a great time and I'm sure you will also. Trailer Mountain is the place to stay in Banff. Close to town. Easy access for big outfits. Not too expensive. You'll put a lot of miles on your toad there.

Waterton was gorgeous. The campground is right on the lake. The closer you are to the lake, the greater the wind. Walk into town.

Glacier. We stayed in St. Mary's at the KOA. A little expensive but it is the best option. Lots to do on the East side--just not the best RV parks. The West side has much more in both quality and quantity of RV parks.

I preferred the drive from Banff to Glacier and on down into Montana that was on the West side (away from Calgary). That's more like the spine of the Rockies. The drive on the East side is mostly like the plains--also very pretty. Large fields of flowering Canola when we went through.

Have fun.
