A day by day of our 12 day road trip through Montana, Wyoming, the Dakotas, and Idaho!
After our 3 Days in Glacier National Park, Teddy and I continued our 12 Day Road Trip through southern Montana and into Idaho.
Check out our epic adventure of spending 3 Days in Glacier National Park.
This is one of those National Parks where you appreciate it most when you do research ahead of time and more planning. If you plan a trip here, I’d recommend finding a way to learn about Teddy Roosevelt and his presidency through a book or podcast as well as about General Custer and the Sioux before coming. Knowing the people who lived in these areas, those who fought there, and those who have tried to protect it makes the experience in the park much more worthwhile.
While 12 days is a decent amount of time for a trip, we covered about 3000 miles so we weren’t able to get to all the hiking we would have liked. There were some hikes we cut due to time or others we didn’t even know about prior to getting to the locations. Because we loved our time in the Southwest and plan to visit again, we started to list our must do hikes for our next adventure through these beautiful states which you can find below.
On our 12 Day Road Trip through portions of the Midwest and Rocky Mountain states of the USA, Teddy and I were able go on about 15 hikes. There were quite a few we had on our list of options, but we knew we would only end up being able to do 1-2 per day based on the amount of driving we planned to do (around 3,000 miles) across Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Idaho. Below you will find those that we either just didn’t get a chance to do or those that we saw along the way that we added to our list for our next visit.
