Planning a summer road trip from Baltimore area to Seattle. Primary objective is to deliver a car to my son who recently relocated, but would like to do some sightseeing along the way. My itinerary currently looks like:
Day 1 - Drive to Dayton, OH area (for quick family visit)
Day 2 - Drive to Chicago (visit Chicago 360/Tilt and just check out city views)
Day 3 - Drive to Sioux Fall (quick visit to Falls Park) continue onto Chamberlain/Oacoma
Day 4 - Drive to Badlands (visit Minuteman Missile Site, drive thru Badlands park (do some hiking, Notch Trail, Door Trail, Window Trail), Drive onto Keystone (possibly catch evening lighting of Mt Rushmore depending on time)
Day 5 - Visit Mt Rushmore, Drive onto Cody, Wy. Attend Cody Night Rodeo.
Day 6 - Drive to Northeast Entrance of Yellowstone, (south to the canyon, down thru hayden valley to lake yellowstone, & then head to old faithful in route to West Yellowstone)
Day 7 - Drive to Butte, MT (lunch & Trolley tour), Drive on to Spokane
Day 8 - Drive onto Seattle
This will give us a couple of days to spend with son in Seattle prior to needing to fly home. Any suggestions or comments on feasibility of this plan are much appreciated.
