Mount Rushmore vs an extra day in Yellowstone/Tetons?

Jump to last reply

Opening myself to votes on the first few days of our early September trip. Mount Rushmore vs an extra day in Yellowstone/Tetons?

A little background. Kids will be 17 and 13, so this is sort of a last chance trip for the oldest to see the West before he grows up and moves on. He was 2 last time we were in Yellowstone so this is practically a first for him. My husband is the only one who has seen Mount Rushmore, soooo... is Mount Rushmore worth a whole day out of our way from Denver to Yellowstone? Part of me says YES. We have to see it once in our lives, right? And this is as close as we’re probably ever going to get to it again. But the other part of me knows we could use more time in the Yellowstone/Teton area.

Right now the plans (and reservations) are:

Fri: flight arrives in Denver 10:30 am. Drive to Custer, SD

Sat: visit Mount Rushmore and then drive to Cody, WY

Sun: visit lower loop of Yellowstone and stay in West Yellowstone (or Old Faithful area if canx opens up)

Mon: more Yellowstone, drive through Tetons, stay in Jackson

Tuesday we head on down towards Bryce, Grand Canyon, and more...
