This September, as part of a longer trip through Canada I hope to spend 3 days in Montana, mainly to get a glimpse at Glacier National Park and Going to the Sun Road.
I am planning to drive south from Waterton NP (CA) along the Chief Mountain Hwy. Then over a couple of days (19-20th), cross Glacier National Park. So should just beat the planned road closure on the 21st.
I planning to return to Canada to visit the city of Nelson, would Hwy 2 or 93 be the more interesting drive? , and is it worth spending a night somewhere out of the park.
Now... this is a outline of my current plan for the entire trip
I could change my plans for the 4-5 days and spend them in the US instead. I need to be back in Vancouver around the 26th for my flight home, I was hoping to check out the desert landscape around Osoyoos but would the scenery through Montana / northern Washington be more interesting/unique then returning via Canada?
Would the National Bison Range or Waterton National Park (Ca) be better for viewing Bison?
Thanks for any advice.
