Montana ideas for summer trip

Jump to last reply

IF the fares for flights drop a bit, I plan to return to Montana this summer - probably in July. I'm looking for suggestions for things to see and do that aren't usually on the first round of ideas for Montana vacations.

I'll hang out for a few days at a ranch near Livingston, and then head back up to Great Falls. We had far too little time up there last trip. I plan to loop on over to Helena to visit a friend who bought a ranch with her new husband and then will drop down into Yellowstone for at least a day - and probably into the Grand Tetons too. I can't imagine staying away.

In the Tetons - I'd like to get on the water this trip - perhaps a float trip. Other suggestions?

In Yellowstone - I'd like to take a ranger led hike. 20+ years ago I took one to standing petrified trees on a ridge. Any suggestions on similar or unique ideas?

In Great Falls - LOVED the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center and First Peoples Buffalo Jump State Park. Rushed too fast through the C. M. Russell Museum and want to go back and really enjoy it. Other suggestions?

I know nothing about Helena or anything or the western side of the state. On the last trip we flew out of Kalispell. Glacier is always a possibility again, but I think I'd rather see something new than go back to Glacier.

I may dip down to Island Park, ID to see where we stayed YEARS ago (30? egads!) while the "boys" fished the box canyon of the Snake River - and then go into Yellowstone from there.

I like scenic drives, seeing different stuff (smaller state parks, etc) and new experiences. Your ideas/suggestions are much appreciated.
