First re your flights.
You have a number of choices into Kalispel with only one stop as mentioned above by Dave S - it's a 2.5 hr drive to Many Glaciers per Google Maps. There are as many or more flights into Great Falls, which is 2 hr 51 min. from Many Glaciers (and it would give you views of the dry central Montana): Flights by United via Chicago or Denver and Delta via Minneapolis or Salt Lake City. (One of the very best places to search for flights is , but you can't purchase tickets from them - its just provides info.)

Now re your trip:
I concur that Walla Walla would be a great stop midway from GNP to the Gorge - IMHO a far better choice than Dayton (they are close to each other)

By all means stop at the Maryhill Museum on the east end of the gorge on your way from Walla Walla

While at the Gorge definitely get to Timberline Lodge - one of the most outstanding lodges built by the NRA's artisans during the depression.

Some excellent sources for more info on the Gorge are and

Definitely spend some time studying everything about Timberline Lodge, which utilized the skills of some very talented people working for the WPA program in the depression era. I don't think the NRA was involved.
