September is the PERFECT TIME to be in the region.  Summer crowds are gone, temperatures are pleasant (70’s in Jackson and the Black Hills, 60’s in Yellowstone) and landscapes are beautiful.  In our opinion, this is an excellent time to be in the Black Hills.

 

Itinerary

September 11:  Salt Lake to Jackson:  This morning, we’ll meet our motor coach and head north.  This is a perfect time to be in the region.   Our destination tonight is beautiful Jackson, Wyoming.  We’ll make lunch and rest stops on our way.  We’ll be in Jackson at about 3:00.  After checking into our hotel, we’ll have a chance to browse in this charming mountain town.  Tonight will be fun as we enjoy dinner and entertainment at the Bar J Chuckwagon.  The food is great the show is hilarious and fun.  This will be a great way to start our tour.   Tour to pay for dinner and show today.

September 12:  Jackson through Yellowstone to Cody:   After waking up to a beautiful mountain scene and enjoying a relaxing breakfast, we’ll drive north through a portion of beautiful Teton National Park (with a photo stop around Jenny Lake) and into our oldest national park:  Yellowstone.   We’ll have time to see several sights of interest in the park’s lower loop such as Old Faithful, the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone and Upper and Lower Yellowstone Falls.  You have probably been here before, but it is always worth another look at these spectacular national parks. We’ll exit the park to the east and drive a short distance into Cody, Wyoming tonight.  Tour to pay for breakfast and park admissions today.

September 13: Cody to Rapid City:  Welcome to the beautiful Big Horn Basin.  Our scenic drive today takes us through the basin as we make our way east.  After lunch in Buffalo, we take a slight tour to the north to see Devil’s Tower National Monument.  This is VERY interesting to see and definitely worth the detour to see it.  We continue into Rapid City tonight, arriving at around 6:00 PM. Dinner is included tonight near our hotel.  We stay three nights at the Country Inn and Suites (or similar) in Rapid City.  Tour to pay for breakfast and dinner today.

September 14:  Black Hills:   Welcome to the storied Black Hills of South Dakota, an oasis of pine-clad mountains on the Great Plains.  We’ll be joined for the next two days by a local guide whose knowledge and experience in the Black Hills will make this area come alive. Today we’ll see the sights that make the area famous.  We’ll see Custer State Park with the hundreds of roaming buffalo, antelope and wild horses.  We will then visit the mountain carving of Crazy Horse which is in progress (admission included).  Lunch is on your own in the Heritage Village.  From there it’s a short drive to the incomparable Mount Rushmore.  You just have to see it to fully appreciate it.  After some free time this afternoon, we’ll drive a short distance to Deadwood where an early dinner for our group is included.  We will make our way back to Rapid City via beautiful Spearfish Canyon and the interesting town of Spearfish.   Tour to pay for light breakfast and dinner today.

September 15:  Badlands and Deadwood:   Just east of Rapid City is the unique area known as the Badlands.  This was home to the Lakota Sioux (including Crazy Horse and Red Cloud) as well as names like General Custer, Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hicock.  The region has been ravaged by wind, rain and erosion over the centuries and what remains are unique landscapes made up of sharp ridges, steep-walled canyons, gullies, pyramids, and other formations.  We’ll make a loop through this scenic region and listen to fascinating stories from our local guide.  For lunch, we’ll make a stop at America’s largest drug store:  Wall Drug.  Started in 1931, this landmark which sits in the heart of the Badlands is a fun place to visit.  After relaxing at the hotel, you’ll have a chance for dinner and browsing in the interesting mountain town of Keystone.  We’ll then return to Mt. Rushmore for the evening lighting ceremony which is VERY impressive.  Tour to pay for breakfast and entrance fees today.

September 16:  Rapid City to Rawlins:    This morning we’ll drive south through Casper (where we’ll have lunch) into Rawlins, Wyoming where we’ll spend the evening.  On our way, we’ll visit the Martin/Willey Handcart Company Visitors Center where many of the Utah pioneer handcart companies were stranded.  An interesting museum/visitors center has been erected near the spot which is worth seeing regardless of religions preference.  Tour to pay for breakfast & dinner today

September 17:  Rawlins to Salt Lake:  Today we wind our way home arriving about 4:00.  Tour to pay for breakfast today.
