I am looking for some guidance on planning my June 10-June 20 trip. I have already decided that flying in/out of Salt Lake makes the most sense financially and otherwise. From there, do I want to stay in W. Yellowstone or in Jackson, WY? Either way it's about a 324 mile drive. How many days do I want to stay in the Yellowstone area, 4? From there we're headed to Mt. rushmore. We have already secured hotel accomodations but were unsure if we should drive over from yellowstone or fly. Probably driving makes more sense from a budget standpoint. If hotels are full in yellowstone do you have any recommendations for other places nearby to stay. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have never been and it's difficult to plan these things sight unseen.
