We have set aside two days/2 nights to travel the most scenic route from Billings to Many Glacier. We do not want to go toward Missoula as we'll be spending two days/nights in the Big Fork/Flat Lake/Swan Lake area so we can cover this area at the end of our time in Glacier National Park.
Our interest is to take a scenic route from Billings and end up at the Many Glacier entrance area the 3rd day mid to late morning.
We don't want to take major highways as we're not in a hurry - we want to explore the area in between and see more of Montana.
Any thoughts as to a route and what we might explore; towns/cities to stay in, etc would be greatly appreciated. We are leaving in a week and this is the only part of our trip still unplanned.
Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give us.
