I know that area well, have an Uncle that lives in Cooke City, MT. Have driven, hiked, & snowmobiled on the Beartooth/Chief Joseph hwys. Spent time in Cody and Red Lodge.
Our main goal is see several of the main attractions along our trip. We are routing the trip based all of your recommendations and picking the highlights from your suggestions. We know we can't see it all, unfortunately, but our time is restricted to just a couple weeks or so. We also aren't going to tie ourselves down to a strict schedule. If we enjoy a place, we may stay longer and skip something down the road. There's always that "next trip". Again, thanks for all the suggestions, and keep them coming, especially the places to stay.
