WY- SD - CO (4 National Parks in Colorado)) in 15-day road trip

Jump to last reply

I'd appreciate advices -
I'm planning a 15-day trip begin in Salt Lake City Int'l Airport and back to the same place from 8/31/2013 to 9/14/2013.

8/31 - 9/4 travel to Grand Teton - Yellowstone Nat'l park, I am familiar with these 2 due to 2010 we made a trip from a different route. Hotels in the parks have all booked,
however the followings are not familiar routes -

From 9/5 morning leave Yellowstone will plan to passing the Devils Tower, then to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Badlands, Custer Park...
if we stayed at Gillette, WY for one night 9/05, then 9/6 morning to Devils Tower then down to Mt. Rushmore, Badlands...
is 2-night stay in Rapid City or Somewhere south, i.e. Custer , do we have enough time to also see the Wind Cave ?

From 9/8 to 9/14
( on 9/14 afternoon our flight leaves Salt Lake city back to L.A. in the late afternoon ).

6 full days, is it possible to cover all 4 National Parks ( may be only the most poplar area of each park) in Colorado including Colorado Springs - "Garden of Gods " ? & Aspen, - hope to see "Maroon Bells Mountain"., we enjoy sightseeing, nice scenic., not much hiking. ( 4 mid-age adults, one senior)

*I supposed we would need to change different hotels almost every night in Colorado ?

*Is Minivan ( i.e. Grand caravan ) okay to drive in Colorado mountain roads?

Thank you so much !
