We departed Illinois at 11:30 a.m. for a 30-day adventure through Montana, Wyoming and South Dakota. We will tour Montana first, followed by Wyoming and then South Dakota. We have visited these states in 1992 and 1996, always on a tight travel schedule, so now that we are both retired we have no restrictions on our travels.
Our adventure on this trip will include:
Glacier National Park, Montana
A Ghost Town in Bannack, Montana
Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
Devils Tower, Wyoming
Custer State Park - Custer, South Dakota
Mount Rushmore - South Dakota
Badlands National Park - South Dakota
Wall Drugs - Wall, South Dakota
The Corn Palace - Mitchell, South Dakota
Glacier National Park is one of our all time favorite places to visit, so we are really looking forward to reuniting our mountaineering experience in the wild once again.
Our planned route to Glacier National Park will take us on I-94 through Wisconsin and Minnesota. Once we get into North Dakota we will take I-29 north to US-2. We will then take US-2 across North Dakota and Montana to US-89 and north on US-89 into Glacier National Park. Our plan is to minimize travel on the Interstate highways and travel the backroads to better experience the local culture and scenery.
