Day 30 of our virtual road trip takes us southeast from Alaska to Montana. (Again, not exactly in one day. But whatever.) Living in the panhandle of Idaho, we are just a couple hours away from the Montana state line to the east, so we’ve been over there on the weekend many times.
We’ve also traveled across Montana on pretty much every road trip that has taken us east. If you’ve never taken that trip, you might not realize how very wide Montana is. A common route for us is to take I-90 across the state. If we stay on I-90 heading south into Wyoming, it takes us about 8 hours (not counting stops) to get across the state. Depending on our final destination, we might angle east at Crow Agency, Montana which reconnects us with I-90 near Sturgis, South Dakota. With that route we spend about 10 hours driving across Montana. So yeah, I get why they call it Big Sky country.
Here are a few of our weekend adventures in Montana:
