We're Alaskans fairly new to Montana & are planning a sudden road trip to camp with Alaskan friends who are driving to meet us in Nelson, BC area.
We have 7 days total with Mr Cat in a kitty condo at the vet.
Right now I am thinking, since Mr Hubby has never seen Lamar valley & I'm newly obsessed with that area & the wolf sightings, of driving from Red Lodge, over Beartooth pass, into Yellowstone via NE entrance,through Lamar valley, to Mammoth Hot Springs, out the north entrance & spend the night camping somewhere.
My thought is should we go thru the Little Belt Mts. to Great Falls camping along the way? Any recommendations of campgrounds through there? We will have a hard-sided camper shell, if that is required.
We've been to Glacier several times, but never thru the Little Belt Mts.
At Glacier our second day, we want to go in the west entrance at St Mary, drive Going to the Sun to our reserved campsite at Fish Creek CG.
Any great hikes preferably near Fish Creek CG or if need be along the way to the campground?
From there we plan to drive out of the park to Whitefish & north from there with boarder crossing at Rooseville thru Cranville & Creston to Nelson BC where we will spend a few days camping.
We are looking for an alternate route back to Red Lodge, with a campground overnight or 2 along the way back. Any suggestions?
We actually could take 2 nights to get home from Nelson.
Any brilliant ideas or route suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
