Saw this article in the Missoula paper this morning...and with the weather we've been having in the northern Rockies it's probably snowing up there today. On the plus side, Beartooth Highway is open from Red Lodge, Mont. through to YNP as of a few days ago according to MTDOT web site. Should make for some extra pretty rides once the Sun opens across Glacier.

Hi it sounds like you know what is going on up in Montana. My daughter and I are going to leave Kansas on Saturday and head toward Glacier National park. Would you have suggestions for things to do and see and what not to waste time on. If so thank you.:cool:

Friends of mine tried Beartooth Highway Tuesday (6/14) and it was closed due to snow, but it is now open.

Here are the numbers--you might want to check road conditions before you head up there.

Montana road conditions-800-226-7623
Yellowstone National Park road conditions-24 hour road hotline 307-344-2117

Thank you for the information. It sounds like we may have some rain. Hopefully we will have some sun also. Thanks for the information.

tj...if coming directly from Kansas and you come toward Glacier from the east, I'd avoid staying in Browning, Mont. It's a pretty tough little town on the Blackfoot reservation. However, that lodge at East Glacier is terrific with an interior and amenities you and your daughter will enjoy.

If you find yourself either going to Missoula from Glacier, or the other way around, take a look at the route that takes you through Seeley Lake, Mont. A bit longer but a very nice ride through the Seeley/Swan valley and along the Blackfoot River. You could base out of Missoula for a couple day rides: US 12 west into Idaho and back or maybe south on US 93 down to Lost Trail Pass and then east through the Big Hole country and loop back to Missoula via Anaconda and Georgetown Lake.

Anyway, lots of choices...have a great trip.

Didn't really want ot hear that, got reservations in Kalispell for the 30th to see Glacier. Guess I'll start looking at alternative rides in that area.
