How to experience Big Sky Country on a great road trip.
Bozeman is a good place to start. You can get cheap flights in or have a pre-road trip trip getting there. Depending on where you start, you might need to look up a few other road trips on the way there. I lived in the far west and did quite a few grids of the state so I will share some of my favorites with you.
The Museum of the Rockies as an amazing prehistoric experience.
It's a bar in old Bozeman among many other fun places to stroll by.
Clean, quiet, central.
This is a must. The cavernas are incredible. Very little has even been mapped and they are known to extend into Canada and as far as South Dakota. Tour is excellent. There are itsy bitsy bats- endangered species so be quiet.
So cool. If you have kids with you they will talk about this experience for a long time. Butte is also home to Montana Tech the top mining and geology school in the world. You can also see the complete and utter destruction Man is capable of if you drive by the Berkeley Pit, a Hazmat SuperFund Site.
Flathead Lake is the deepest natural lake West of the Mississippi River. Also the cleanest lake in America. Here you can experience the culture of several indigenous peoples, awesome water recreation, and great brewpubs.
Glacier- best place to start before a good night's rest- your real adventure starts tomorrow!
Go ask them what you need and what to do.
There is nothing like this. People go to Glacier NP from all over the world. The glaciers themselves are melting, and the next few years may be your last chance to see them. Ever.
