10 days for Yellowstone and Mt. Rushmore

Our family (4 adults) is planning a trip out west next June, 2018. We have 10 days. Is that enough time to see Yellowstone and drive to Mr. Rushmore?
We'd be flying from Philly, Baltimore or DC.

Yes, I think so. I spent 5 days in Yellowstone and felt I did it justice. If the 10 days includes travel time and you also want 5 days in the park (a decent minimum), 1 day at each end from home & back again plus a long day driving to S. Dakota, you'd have 2 days to spend there. Or 2 shorter days driving to SD with a day to see Mt. Rushmore. A day really is enough if that's all you plan to see in SD.

Ten days should be fine, especially if you include Grand Teton (which is excellent and immediately to the south of Yellowstone) and a day in nearby Jackson.

Do you have reservations for next summer? If not, you may be a little behind. Get on the phone now and call daily till something opens.
