Depoe Bay Oregon to West Glacier

I will be leaving Depoe Bay Oregon on Tuesday and travel to West glacier. We will be staying at the KOA there. I am driving a 31 foot Thor motorcoach motor home towing a jeep wrangler. Any suggestions on the best route. I've been keeping an eye on the wildfires in Montana but by chance has anyone been to glacier national Park in the last week or so. Thanks for any help!

Depending on your route you may see some fairly thick smoke here or there from the fires in Montana, Idaho, Washington, and British Columbia, notably at times near Missoula. At times near Missoula, Bitterroot valley, Superior, and Arlee you may see significant air activity so just watch out for other motorists trying to watch and drive at the same time and doing dumb things. Other than that traffic and pretty much everything is moving along just fine. I'm told that tourism is going quite well at Glacier this year. No large fires impacting Glacier Park area at this time, Waterton has closed off backcountry activity as of yesterday because of extreme dry conditions. If you were planning on going around thru Seeley Lake change your route. You can keep up with the road and fire status at Montana's Official State Website - Home all in one place. You will have a great trip.

We were in west Glacier a couple of weeks ago and the smoke impacted the views and air quality some, if either of those things matter to you.

Could be clear now, and I haven't heard of new fires in that area.
