First suggestion, take your time and enjoy, this is a beautiful country and lots to see. We are also headed that way this year, will be stopping in Hill City SD so we can see Mt Rushmore and the Crazy Horse memorial, so you might consider this stop. If going in from the east through Ciody,Wy then spend some time in Cody and take in the Buffalo Bill Museum, if going in through Jackson,Wy then stop and enjoy this great western town. If you have time I encourage you to swing south and visit western Colorado, some fantastic scenery around Montrose, Ouray, Telluride and Durango. Wherever you go, enjoy

I keep stopping and checking out the progress on Crazy Horse, our first visit was 2003. Take a break there from the highway and spend a day, the area is really nice. Custer State Park is also very nice.

Devils Tower is cool, and if you have something to drive with you besides the coach check out the Bear Tooth highway. Awesome!

Glacier Natinal Park is my favorite if you have time, much more secluded, way less people, and the views are amazing.

To really see the beautiful county avoid the Interstates and take the large 2 lane, 4 lane and scenic highways. If you are on a tight schedule, that probably won't work as there is so much to stop and see along the way.

Saint Louis Arch Gateway to the west. You will probably see the arch from the interstate. Well worth stopping here. As others mentioned, the Black Hills of SD, lots to see here you could probably spend a week or more.

For us, your destinations are "back East!" We're jus off the top corner of mainland Washington state, about 50 crow-fly miles form the Canadian border.

Exactly a month from today, we're heading to Yellowstone. If you are going through Wyoming, I recommend Devil's Tower National Monument. There's a KOA just outside of the park's entrance that shows Close Encounters of the Third Kind nightly.

Also, along the way to Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone, you should take a diversion and head up to the Little Bighorn Battlefield.
