Before heading off into the mountains take time out to explore this cosmopolitan city. Visit the Colorado State Capitol building filled with the areas architectural gems, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science or LODO (lower downtown) an area of 20 plus square blocks filled with hip restaurants, shops and galleries.
Day 2 : Denver to Cheyenne
Distance: 102 miles
Named after the Cheyenne Indian people which once inhabited this area of Wyoming. It's wild and woolly past is reflected in the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum, well worth a visit. A trip to an authentic Wild West Saloon in the evening will set you on your way. We recommend the "Nagle Warren", a quirky B&B.
Days 3-4 : Cheyenne to Custer State Park
Distance: 264 miles
An early start today as you head off to South Dakota and Custer State Park, home to a herd of 1,500 bison that roam freely through the 73,000 acres of spectacular scenery. This State's attractions boast famous Mount Rushmore, the impressive Crazy Horse Memorial, Jewel Cave National Monument, Wind Cave National Park and the Badlands.
Day 5 : Custer State Park to Sheridan
Distance: 235 miles
Sheridan owes its beginning to two trappers who built a cabin along the little Goose River in 1873. It rapidly became a centre of ranching set against a backdrop of wild open plains to the east and the jagged Big Horn Mountains to the West. We recommend to experience this area you stay at The Ranch in Ucross for great home cooking and sing-along beside the piano in the evening.
Days 6 - 7 : Sheridan to Yellowstone National Park
Distance: 240 miles
America's oldest national park and one of the best examples of unspoilt wilderness. At 2.2 million acres it houses the world's most extensive areas of geyser activity. It is also the favourite park of many, not because of its thermal fireworks, but because of its wildlife. Don't be surprised to see black bear as you drive through the park.
Days 8 - 9 : Yellowstone National Park to Jackson
Distance: 80 miles
The Grand Teton National Park has eight large lakes, glistening glaciers and year-round snow capped mountains. Watch the sunrise over the Tetons and be amazed by the pink and crimson mist that clings to the mountains. Your overnight stay is Jackson, a very stylish western cowboy town.
Day 10 : Jackson to Steamboat Springs
Distance: 385 miles
Wake early and make the most of a spectacular day's drive through the Rocky Mountains to quaint Steamboat Springs. Stroll along the Victoria style boardwalk and dine in one of the many western restaurants, a great place to sample Rocky Mountain oysters. Browse through the antique shops or for the more adventurous zoom down the Yampa River on a tube.

Make the most of your last morning and rise early for some last minute shopping.
