If your yet planning on the West side of the Park... The endless 80 at least as far as the 26 to the I-25/I-90... At Livingston MT., Turn on the 89 up to the Park. Simply get to Wyoming/Montana ASAP.... Do the byway"wandering" there ... carracar

Going up thru the eastern face of the Rockies is beautiful ranch land and the interesting small town of Choteau, MT. That route will put you on the east side of Glacier NP.

As a sde trip in Choteau you can see David lettermans ranch....

I would drive through south Dakota black hills then to great falls...this is about 16 hrs driving with rapid city the rough mid point.

Roughly 1300 miles...not much time for sight seeing but..definitely go to Glacier via Chief Joseph hwy and Beartooth hwy. 2 gorgeous drives especially the Beartooth hwy..second night spend in Red Lodge Montana,a gem of a town if ever. If time permitting and passports available definitely would add gorgeous Waterton Lakes NP in Canada,only 50 or so miles from the eastern entrance of Glacier (St Marys).

Definitely add Beartooh hwy (Wyoming/Montana) to the route...Called one of the most spectacular scenic highways in America...
