Must See Destinations - Wyoming to Glacier

Fuel is a minor concern as we face some physical health choices in the near future. We are wanting to take advantage of every moment before considering options that may force a life-style change.

Our planned trip will be departing from Chanute KS (June 18th) with Glacier National Park (GNP) as our goal. Stopping at our Colorado Springs home for two or three days before heading north. After leaving GNP, we will go south to Yellowstone. Returning back to Colorado Springs for a short stop. The finishing up back in Chanute to see doctors the following Monday (July 18).

Total miles on the coach is estimate 3600. This does not include our tow vehicle.

We would like suggestions for "must see destinations" between Wyoming (I25-north) and GNP. We are estimating 20 days after leaving Colorado Springs before returning. Any suggestions would be welcomed. Keep in mind we have a 45' coach.

Thanks in advance and looking forward to your replies.

Colorado Springs then 20 days for doing Glacier and Yellowstone and back to Colorado Springs will go by fast.

Black Hills/Devil's Tower area
Buffalo/Cody, WY

You didn't give your route, what your interests are or where you're staying for Glacier. Montana is BIG!

Take the Red Bus tour of Glacier:

https://www.glaciernationalparklodges.com/red-bus-tours

You're going to Yellowstone after Glacier but there's a lot to see in that area. Nevada City/Virginia City, Bannack State Park.

Check out these websites for central Montana:

We will be taking I-25 North from Springs into Wyoming and willing to go the best route to see some sites.

We have been to Yellowstone 7 years ago. Just going to hit some of the highlights this time.

Stop at Little Bighorn Battlefield in Gerryowen, MT.
Stay at the 7th Ranch RV Park. They have nice sites with full hookups and a great WiFi.
Livingston, Mt is a great stop too. Paradise Valley and the North Yellowstone Entrance

You might consider driving W of Laramie on 130 through the Medicine Bow NF, and stop for a soak at Saratoga Hot Springs. I've seen pictures of that NF area and it's on my list of places to visit.


Vedauwoo, just off I-80 between Cheyenne and Laramie, is an interesting place also.


I drove from Missoula to Kalispell on my way to the west side of GNP, and it was a pleasant, picturesque drive; the first glimpse of Flathead Lake seemed strikingly beautiful to me.

To me, no trip to Yellowstone is complete without also visiting the Tetons and Jackson Wyoming.

Id consider a side trip to drive the Beartooth Highway. We dropped down off I-90 and stayed in Red Lodge, which was a nice little town.

You can also access the Highway if you exit on the East side of Yellowstone, but it appeared at the time more out of the way than the route I described above.

A long, long time ago, Charles Kursk described it as the most scenic drive in North America. He was not wrong.

Enjoy your trip.

Meant to say Charles Kuralt.
