I'm moving from San Francisco to New York City in late September and am considering driving instead of flying. I would really like to check out Yellowstone NP but am wondering if 14 days would be enough for the drive.
With 5-6 hours of driving a day, I figured I could get from SF to Yellowstone in 3 days. Spend one day at Grand Teton and one day at Yellowstone. Then drive to Badlands NP in 2 days and spend one day there. After that I'm not too sure, but I guess 5-6 days would be enough to get me from there to NYC, with maybe a stop in Chicago for a day.
Does that sound insane? Any suggestions for parks/interesting places between South Dakota and NYC that wouldn't require too much of a detour?
