My girlfriend & I are heading out Sunday morning to reach Yellowstone where we have campsite reserved starting Tuesday...on our way there we want to make a few stops to see some other must see attractions...in order to arrive in YStone on Tue in the early afternoon what do you think I should/could fit in along the way and where are good mid points to stop at and spend the night Sun & Mon? I have to get her back to work in Chicago by the following Monday morning : / wish we had more time.
The Wounded Knee story really interest me although I have not researched much about the memorial itself...is Mt.
Roushmore really worth all of its hype? I read badlands might be worth seeing?
we are both in our late 20's so if the 1st day drive has to be long in order to make if west enough to see a few attractions that is fine with us since day 1 we will be fresh and going off adrenaline and excitement...
we were thinking on the way back to Chicago we would make it more of a straight drive (stoping 1 night to rest) to spend max amount of time in YStone as I need to get my girlfriend back to work by Mon morning...thoughts?
Thanks a ton!!
