hi everyone, really enjoyed reading "thoughts on itinerary" on previous post. I think our trip will be very similar. We will be getting into the area on july 4th and just not sure where to stay to see the fireworks. I read they are not doing them at Mt. Rushmore but in Lead or are there other areas that are having fireworks?.would Lead be a good location to stay as a base ? maybe you could tell us a place to stay close by where we might even be able to see from our hotel area and not have to be in all the traffic getting in and out .cuz being on a bike at night in alot of crowds can be difficult with people walking in front of you.
Also we would like to have a base for two days in one spot to see sights and then move to another spot for two more days and see the other highlights. Can you all give me an itinerary also of how you would see the area in about 4-5 days. its easier when we can leave our luggage at hotel. I am just not good at mapping our days. just two adults in 50's some hotel ideas would be great also if you are allowed to share those on this forum. Just would like to travel in a logical order , as my husband says to me you have us riding all day to one destination and you dont include the stops on the way. so we end up driving most of the time passing same sites a million times hah. I need help to use riding time wisely. I would really appreciate any help you could give me and quickly cuz we are leaving on Saturday 6-30-12.!!!
Also about the Rodeo in Cody is it something that is worth seeing especially since we have never seen one. is this something you would reccomend seeing?
