Northwest Must Sees?

We are in the processing of planning our summer trip and would appreciate any suggestions on must see and/or do sites. We are starting our trip in Eureka, CA and then Oregon, Idaho, Montana, S Dakota, Wyoming.

We have done the Oregon and WA coast a couple of times. Visited Crater Lake last summer. We have a quite a few places on our list but we seem to always miss something.

Here are some ideas ...

Medora, ND ==> Pitchfork Fondue and show (must see)

Black Hills ==> Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Pigtail bridges, Custer State Park (Bison herd), chuckwagon dinner

Kearney, NE ==> Great Platte River Road Archway Museum

Minden, NE ==> Pioneer Village

Cody, WY ==> Cody Museum (must see)

This could take a while.
One. When you enter South Dakota stop at the welcome center and rent a cd about South Dakota. You can turn it back in when you leave the western part of the state and get your deposit. less a couple dollars for usage, back for the cd. It is very interesting and it will tell you a lot about South Dakota.
Two. Dry camp in the Badlands. It is cheap and really beautiful. Go over to the resterant close to the campground and have an Indian taco and an AlkaSelser... Yummie....
Three... Take three sleaves of saltines and go over to Custer park and feed the ''beggin burrows''....
Four .... ride the roads in the black hills .... wonderful.... Eat lunch in Keystone and find the ''penny man'' and buy a pressed penny and tell him Seajay says Hi...
Five. go over to Crazy Horse memorial and take the ''school bus'' to the base of the mountain for an ''up close'' look at the monument.....
Six..... Rushmore, Cody, Yellowstone etc etc etc.... Travle up to Bear Tooth pass if you have the time ......
Seven ...... Devils Tower........
own and own ..... There is no end of things to see and places to go to in that area. You will not cover it in one trip or ten trips. I have been out there at least six times and I have yet to ''see it all'' and every time I go back I see something I missed before. Word to the wise.. TAKE YOUR TIME. It is better to see something well and really enjoy it than to see a LOT OF THINGS A LITTLE BIT.
As usual, if you use this valuable information you must pay me ten cents the next time you see me because good information is not cheap. Of course, on the other hand, if this dont work out for you .......I NEVER KNEW YOU.....LOL......

Thanx for your suggestions. Some of the places (like Mt Rushmore) are already on out list but many of the others are new to us. We are slowly learning to slow down and see less, but see it better!
