    Default We Can Only Do So Much

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America forums.

    At just a shade under 2400 miles for everything on your wish list, such a trip is quite doable. You just have to keep up an average pace of 150 miles a day, so you should be able to budget a day or 2 at each of your stops. The route would be out on I-90 from Seattle to Montana and then use a series of state roads, MT-135, MT200, and MT-28 to join US-93 in Elmo then at Kalispell, use US-2 across Glacier. US-89 and US-287 would then take you south to I-90 and US-89 through Yellowstone and Teton. US-26 would then connect you back over to I-86/I-84/I-82 back towards Seattle or Mt. Ranier. Other than Yellowstone itself, these roads should still be relatively quiet in June and will take you through some wonderful scenery. What's going to make it the most memorable are the adventures that you and your family have. Those you have to supply yourself! Just relax and keep your eyes and hearts open and I don't think you can go wrong.
