  1. Default Zion to Yellowstone via Mount Rushmore

    Hi Everyone, I am planning a trip for next May/June and intend to land in Las Vegas ant travel to Zion acroos to Denver theen up to Mount Rushmore before heading to Yellowstone before flying out of Salt Lake City. I am looking for suggestions on where to stay overnight and places to visit en route as I will be the only driver I don't want to cover more than 300miles maximum a day. Any ideas?

    Default Many places but how much time ?

    Hello and welcome to then RTA forums !

    You don't say how long you have for the trip, which will have a bearing on how much you can see and where you might want to stop. From Zion to Denver there is much to see, other Utah parks like Bryce canyon, Capitol Reef, Arches and Canyonlands. In Colorado you have the likes of Mesa Verde NP, Colorado National Monument, Black canyon and Rocky Mountain NP. Around Rushmore you have places like Wind cave NP, Custer State Park, an further east you will find Badlands. On the way to Yellowstone you could detour to Devils Tower NM and Bighorn Canyon and of course as you leave Yellowstone, the Grand Tetons.

    Spring can come late to Yellowstone and aiming to be there by Mid June should see the park pretty much fully operational.
