Great info folks!! Thanks so much for taking time to respond with great suggestions!! Keep 'em coming!!
Really looking forward to this trip!! And it's looking like we might be changing a few things as we learn more from you guys. I know we have a year, but I'm sure reservations will need to be made soon.
Planning a trip to these three areas next year late Aug or early Sept. Looking to get ideas of things to do other than the obvious.
Tentative plan is to leave central Texas and go to Rushmore, then to Yellowstone, then back to Texas through Cheyenne.
We've never been to either of these areas, so in your opinion, how much time is needed for each area?
We have about 2 weeks, but we live outside of Austin, Tx so just getting to Rushmore is going to be three easy days or two hard days.
Probably do the three day plan.
While at Rushmore, we want to also see Crazy Horse. Your other suggestions? Is one full day enough for this area?
I imagine Yellowstone area probably should be a trip in itself, and will be some day. But is three days enough to at east get a good feel of the park?
My wife wants to visit Cheyenne, Wy. Nothing in particular to do, just always wanted to visit this town. What's on your "must see/do" list for Cheyenne? One full day enough there?
We have a 40ft 5th wheel and a Ford dually TV
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!
