Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    We would have liked more time in Yellowstone National Park.

  • How was the food?

    Outlaw Restaurant in Ouray

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Going on a road trip to see family is a great way to see things instead of taking a flight. Take binoculars if you're going through Yellowstone, download a good playlist on Spotify as the service can be patchy and plenty of snacks!

  • Packing tips?

    Lots of layers to stay warm and blankets for the car in case you have to stop for the night or to wait for the weather to pass.

  • Transportation Tips?

    Make sure to check the weather before driving as the roads often get closed. We were lucky to pass through but some people after us had to turn around.

  • Booking details?

    Booked via Airbnb and booking.com for the best rates
