On the way to Alaska in July we're planning to make a few stops in MT and one of them would be Libby. I want to see parts of the state less visited. My husband and I are hikers but because of some issues we'll be focusing this time on shorter (2-3 miles) hikes. Often I also hike farther by myself when he waits on a trail or turns back to a trailhead. I'm thinking about staying around or in Libby for 2-3 days. We love quiet trails with fantastic views but also hiking in the woods would be great. Is hiking in that area among blooming beargrass and other summer wildflowers possible?
Suggestions for lodging under $150.00?
After Libby our next destination is Peachland, BC. I would like to go through Bonners Ferry, ID. According to google maps I have two options. What would be the most scenic route? Should we make an overnight stop somewhere in between? Our trip is not a marathon drive. We like to stop often for views, geological formations, have a picnic lunch, maybe visit a local museum, take a short hike, photograph wildflowers, buy local fruits.
I would appreciate your suggestions. Because Bonners Ferry is in ID I think I should post my question in ID forum as well. Thanks
