When to visit Rockies & Great Plains
Summer is busy season for America’s national parks with school holidays and favourable hiking weather. Consider delaying your trip for the autumn (or bringing it forward for spring) when weather is still temperate but there are half the crowds. In winter, while snow-dusted peaks and pines make for stunning photography, don’t underestimate the unpredictability of alpine America’s weather with temperatures often dropping well below freezing.
