    Default Welcome!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    You could "road geek" this up a bit and take a drive to Mexican Hat, UT. Utah has much of what you are looking for in the hiking and scenery aspects.

    This link has a list of things to see from I-70, which is a nice drive in Utah. You could also go into Bryce Canyon, Zion, and Arches National Parks, to name just three.

    One route you could try is to head South from Great Falls to Utah, then East into Colorado, and head back North going through Yellowstone on your return trip home.

    Default I love the Mexican Hat to Mexican Hat idea!

    If you don't want to drive that far, you might enjoy doing Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Tetons national parks. These roadtrip reports should give you more ideas of things to do in those states: Montana Wyoming
