Montana from Salt Lake City: Help!

Jump to last reply

DH and I will be revisiting some old favorites in Utah, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho by car at the end of September for 14 nights, staying in hotels. We hope to experience as much of Montana as possible on our way to and from a Glacier Park re-visit.
The current route schedule is:
Salt Lake City 1 night re-visit
Grand Teton, Jackson, 1 night re-visit,
Yellowstone at Canyon Lodge, 2 nts We've visited the geysers, the Lake and Mammoth, but need ideas for near Canyon Lodge, easy walks.
Livingston/Bozeman, MT, 1 night
Helena, 1 night
Apgar at Glacier Park, 2 nights. We want to focus on West Glacier, easy walks, photographic mountains, lakes. We've visited the north and east.
Flathead Lake 3 nights. Will explore Whitefish and both sides of Flathead
Missoula, 1 night
Salmon, Idaho 1 night
Salt Lake City, 1 night
I am hoping seasoned travelers can help with most scenic, but not scary, driving routes. Is it worth detouring out West Yellowstone to experience the Big Sky region on a roundabout route to Bozeman/Livinston, or is the straight shot north from Canyon Lodge Yellowstone to Livingston just as scenic? We know we'd like to visit the National Bison Refuge along route 93 when going south from Flathead Lake. We've included the Montana city visits, just because we haven't seen them. However if overnights in nearby scenic towns or country settings would be advisable, we'd like to schedule those instead. Please advise any short scenic stops or experiences we should include along our routes?
We love the advice from fellow travelers we've always gotten on this board and hope to hear all advice, big or small any traveler has to give. DH, the driver, is 80, so we want a crack at this road trip while we are still able! We're still good for one or two mile easy walks. Thanks, Fodorites!
