Hi everyone - I just joined here.
I am going on a short(ish) road trip from Chicago to Sheridan, WY (my friend is moving there). It doesn't seem like there is that much to see along this way? We are most interested in natural beauty, interesting wildlife, etc.
Please tell me what you think of my plan so far and if I am missing anything. We plan to stay in inexpensive hotels along the way. We are going at the end of June.
Day #1 - Chicago to Madison, WI - 2 hours - start from Chicago on the later side - stay in Madison for night #1
Day #2 - Madison to Sioux Falls, SD - 7 hours -get to Sioux Falls at dinner time - stay there for night #2
Day #3 - Sioux Falls, SD to Badlands, SD - 7 hours - stay there for night #3 and #4
Day #5 - Badlands to Sheridan - 4.5 hours - arrive in Sheridan late afternoon on Day #5
