Looks like you're already past SD. Hope you did'nt miss Needles Hwy. if you have never been there. Just got back from 5800 mile jaunt in that part of the world. Just had 1 day in Yellowstone. Motels have you held hostage to see our national parks. Could'nt afford to hang around long enough to see it all. Paid $267 for a KOA cabin south of Jackson.

Just returned from yellowstone country Today

Took my old 87 interstate to visit family in Montana. They all still live in and around the yellowstone river area. We all attended schools in Livingston, Montana. Total trip was only 820 miles from my home in SW washington state to there. Considerably shorter then your trip....I hope you are enjoying the trip and meet some great people.

Day 4 Aug 25 2019 Devils tower to Cody Wy, left early weather was clear and chilly we headed out on 24 to 14 to 90 west to Gillette. took 14 in Gillette to Sheridan, awesome 2 lane road very little traffic, after fill up in Sheridan we took 14 up over Big Horn Mts. We stopped at the medicine wheel not knowing the road went up the side of a mountain we still decided to go it was about ! mile off the pavement on some of the worst road i have ever taken my wing on but it was worth it. We then made our way down the Mountain on 14 A to lovell the view was amazing i have most all the trip on video and didn't get any pics on camera i will get them transfer them over later.After a quick stop in Lovell we made our way to Cody,Wy, we stayed 2 nights at the Ponderosa campground. Diner was at Irma's downtown, had all you can eat prime rib the place was build by Buffalo Bill for his daughter. the food was good the place was like walking back in time they had the original bar and dining area where they served diner. We cruzed the town did a little shopping then back to camp for the night.

day 6 aug 27 Cody to Canyon village , We headed out of town to chief Joseph highway the weather was clear and very little traffic. we had the entire highway to ourself the ride was awesome and the views great We stopped in the town of Cooke city in Montana , neat little town a few businesses and a couple gas stations gas was 3.90 a gallon we got a bite to eat and then on the bike to yellowstone north east entrance. when we arrived at the gate there was no one in line. After a nice ride we came into Lamar valley we seen some buffalo whiuch was neat but when we were here 2 years ago we seen buffalo so to us you seen one you seen them all but to some its a all day adventure. After a while at the traffic jam of rubber necks we made it to canyon village and our camp ground.We were excited to be camping in yellowstone till we seen the site i was givin. I reserved a 20 ft site for a camper and a vehicle what we got was a place to park a small car on a slant.. the review i gave them was a good as the site i got, otherwise the campgound was ok we had bought hamburgers at cody for dinner and cooked them over the fire it was a great day of riding and sight seeing.
