The distance between Mount Rushmore and Yellowstone National Park is approximately three hundred and seventy to four hundred miles or five hundred and ninety five to six hundred and forty kilometres. The overall distance can also vary depending on which part of Yellowstone you travel to as the entire national park is spread out over three states.

Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a sculpture carved into the granite face of Mount Rushmore near Keystone, South Dakota, in the United States of America. Sculpted by Gutzon Borglum and later by his son Lincoln Borglum, Mount Rushmore features 60-foot sculptures of the heads of former United States presidents. In order from left to right: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. The entire memorial covers 1,278.45 acres and is 5,725 feet above sea level.

The memorial was iconicly used as the location of the climactic chase scene in Alfred Hitchcock's 1959 movie North by Northwest. Scriptwriter Ernest Lehman recalled that in the course of screenwriting, Hitchcock murmured wistfully, 'I always wanted to do a chase across the faces of Mount Rushmore.' The scene was not actually filmed at the monument, since permission to shoot an attempted killing on the face of a national monument was refused by the National Park Service.

Yellowstone National Park, established by the US Congress and signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant on March 1, 1872, is a national park located primarily in the US state of Wyoming, although it also extends into Montana and Idaho. Yellowstone was the first national park in the world, and is known for its wildlife and its many geothermal features, especially the Old Faithful Geyser which is one of the most popular features in the park. It has many types of ecosystems, but the subalpine forest is dominant. Yellowstone National Park spans an area of 3,468.4 square miles, comprising lakes, canyons, rivers and mountain ranges. Yellowstone Lake is one of the largest high-altitude lakes in North America and is centered over the Yellowstone Caldera, the largest supervolcano on the continent. The caldera is considered an active volcano. It has erupted with tremendous force several times in the last two million years.

The discrepancy is because yellow stone Park is huge; it lies in three different states in the Eastern United States. Mount Rushmore is worth visiting and nearly two million visitors a year can vouch for that. The sculpture carved into the face of the rock consisting of the faces of former US Presidents Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.

The monument of Mount Rushmore is one of the most recognized features the world over and has appeared in several movies. It is however built on land that is believed to have been seized (stolen) by the American's from the Lakota tribe.
