Doug, I heard back from my cousin and here is what he had to say, hope it helps.

50 is the st joe road I believe and it is two lane paved up to a few miles past (east) of Red Ives road . Red Ives is single lane paved (old pavement with small patches of gravel where fixed) all the way to the ranger station, gravel from there on.

Most all of western Montana is stunning! We also like Kings hiway scenic byway from Great falls to Neihart MT to I 90. Glacier, Yellowstone, flathead lake are marvelous!

Krashgueen...(love the name), We are planning to stay for a while in the Flathead Lake area and visit Glacier. Thanks for the heads-up on Kings Scenic Byway. I'll put that on the list, it looks interesting.

Ditto on Glacier National Park, my favorite area of the lower 48 next to southwest Colorado.

In Idaho Craters of the Moon National Monument is a must allow a couple of days. We fit in the campground with out 40' Journey. Out side of Boise there is a Raptor Sanctuary that rehabs Condors and is quite interesting.

Hi Stargazer66,
2X on Craters of the Moon. To enjoy the park one needs to enter the lava tubes. Consider wearing good hiking shoes/boots. The lava will tear up sneakers.

The 4th of July Rodeo in Livingston Montana was a true cultural experience for this easterner.

At southern end of Flathead lake:
National Bison Range - in addition to bison, saw bighorn, elk, deer, pronghorn, eagles, and others. Nice drive through at your own pace.
Cherry festival in July. Also cherry stands, or pick your own at some orchards which are along lakeshore.
Nice museum in Polson.
The lake is unparalleled.

Near west side of Glacier:
Hungry Horse dam - besides the dam, the fishing in the streams feeding it can be nice. If you are there in early August you might be able to find a huckleberry patch (or buy the berries and/or products in town, the ice cream and pies are to die for).

Glacier - of course "going to the sun", but don't miss Avalanche Lake and Gorge, Hidden Lake, or the river as it winds along the highway. On the boardwalk to Hidden Lake (Visitor's Center at top of Going to the Sun) you are likely to find mountain goats. Saw a couple of young black bear alongside the road on the way up two years ago.

See Glacier now. We were told two years ago that the glaciers will be gone within 15 years. Sad to hear. Been going there since I was very young. I was born in Kalispell.

Arlin...more great ideas. I've got it all on my list now. We'll be there for a month so should be able to complete our check list. I appreciate your willingness to help.

I can't believe no one has mentioned Butte, MT, the richest hill on earth. A combination of history, beauty, and ugly..

A little further East is Lewis and Clark caverns.
