Heading west from MI!

Getting ready to plan our trip out west and wondering what sights we should not miss! Want a route that takes us through South Dakota, and includes stops at Mount Rushmore and perhaps Yellowstone Park for old faithful, then to California coast.

Any suggestions?

We made a similar trip few years ago. YOu mentioned YS and Rushmore - Here's a list of places that are not as well known.

Theodore Roosevelt NP in Medora and the show in Medora (North Dakota) are places we will go again.

Astoria, WA

Custer State Park near Rushmore

There is an excavation site for a find of Mammoths - not sure where exactly or the name but it's on the 'net (Of course)

Helena (Montana) state house and museum

Grant's Pass and the Rogue River

How long of a trip are you planning, even 4 weeks would not be enough time? We did a 2 week trip from Mi to Yellowstone/Glacier and back and it seemed like all we did was drive.

Mi heading west

We did the Michigan to Yellowstone in 2017. Stopped at the Bad Lands, Mt Rushmore then on to Yellowstone. The trip was 16 days.
This spring we are heading back along the same route to Custer State Park in SD. We are planning to be there about 5-6 days with 2-3 days travel each way.

Mammoth Site near Hot Springs. One of our favorite stops!
