Traveling Montana

      Traveling to, in and through Montana is a wonderful experience. There are so many great places to visit and roads to travel. Each region of the state offers it's own unique charms and every corner of the state features some of the greatest people and most beautiful landscapes in the world.  Roughly the western third of the state is the mountainous country.  Most roads follow river bottoms through the surrounding mountains and there are many wonderful valleys to explore.  Other roads travel over the mountains and there are a number of mountain passes within the state.  Most of these are generally easily passable but there are exceptions

Butterfly common to Montana traveler
      The Beartooth Highway near Yellowstone and the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier are both high mountain routes that are only open in the summer months. Even then the road can be tough.  I once met a former snow plow driver who was assigned to the Beartooth Pass who had many stories about horrible road conditions in the middle of the summer.  He told me that he was one of the only snow plow drivers in the country that works in the summer and has the winter off.  Don't let the possibility of bad weather scare you away from either of these roads as a drive on either of them is an experience to be cherished.
