I don't usually ask this question, but after a trip to major bookstore and trying to find info on line, I'm having a difficult time trying to quickly map out a plan for this trip. Want to get plane and room reservations, but have to roughly plan out days first. Need to have a big paper map, which I don't at the moment, to figure out the plan. Hoping someone has suggestions.

First day, after a long plane trip don't like to drive too far, so thinking of something near St Cloud MN. After that, we like to stay at least 2 nights in a place. So does anyone have suggestions of interesting areas to stop. Somewhere else in MN near Rt 94 or head to Bismarck via Rt 94?

Want to explore Roosevelt Park, so will probably look for a place near there for a few nights.

Imagine longest stay, up to 4 nights (?) will be in Mt Rushmore/Custer area. Would love to stay in Custer State Park, but doubt we'll find a room, especially for 4 nights. Is it feasible to stay in a central location to visit Mt Rushmore/Custer/Wind Cave?

Then will head to Denver maybe (?) via Cheyenne, WY

This is a 2 week trip so can do side trips off of main route. This is just a general route now starting in Minneapolis and ending in Denver. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Looking more for natural beauty/culture/walking than tourist attractions. Yes, I know Mt Rushmore is man made and a tourist spot, but not the strictly for tourist spots.
