Help couple Europeans to decide on USA landscape trip. Please
Little background. We are couple hobby photographers from Europe, we work all summer in Minnesota and want to do a nice two weeks trip around for some landscape photography. Trip will be somewhere between Sep 20 and Oct 8.
We are debating between.
Big road trip starting from Minnesota>north Dakota>Montana>Wyoming>Colorado>Nebraska and back to minnesota
We haven’t look for exact road but obviously Yellowstone will be the main event with stop at bad lands and im sure million more places on he way.
Second option so far looks to be flight to Las Vegas and just explore around.
That will include Grand Canyon, Death Valley, Zion, Arches national park and im sure there is few more. They are all 2-4h drive from Las Vegas.
We do not really have 3rd option as for now but we are open to suggestions.
We have no idea about the weather and which places will be better to visit at the end of September to early October. If there is someone with more experience with us willing to share some info we will be forever grateful. We are trying to do research on the internet but so far we just cant seem to make up our mind.
Thanks for reading and eventually helping out in advance.
