Whilst hoping to visit relatives in vancouver next year we have discovered that it is cheapest to fly into seattle. So taking 3 weeks we want to do a big road round trip from seattle via Glacier National park into Canada and back to Seattle. We are quite happy to do a long day of driving if it gets us to a good national Park so that we can do some walking.
We aren't into big cities but enjoy the countryside, wildlife, great scenery and scenic drives and food. Can anyone suggest a scenic drive towords Glacier national park. We will be in June 2012 - which roads would we need to be aware of? Possible closures due to snow that would change our route?
I promise we will stay in seattle on the way home but our budget for hotels isn't much more than $100 - $150 so is there a good suburb with a cheap good hotel that would still allow us easy access to downtown area? We will have a hire car, picked up & dropped off, at the airport but if we can travel in by bus we are quite happy to do that unless parking in seattle is better than most big cities.
Phew - thanks in advance for any help.
