My big trip for 2013 put me across Washington, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. From Canada I crossed into the US near Creston and spent the night in Coeur d’Alene. The next day was spent driving east along I90 until stopping in Livingston at a B&B right at the edge of Yellowstone. Driving the loop through Yellowstone itself took an entire day with several stops to view the scenery. Exploring further into the park with hiking along the many trails would require a longer stay. Also checked out the scenic Beartooth Highway which crosses through Montana into Wyoming, though unfortunately ran into a combination of rain and fog through most of the way. Took a number of smaller highways around Montana to explore some of the great views and small towns. On the way out of Montana, I stopped at the Granite ghost mining town near Philipsburg. My return route into Canada crossed through Idaho and into Washington, with an overnight stop in Colville. It was quite the trip and I have future plans to revisit the area when I can dedicate more time to exploration.
