We extended a trip into southern Montana a day because I had heard this canyon was a gorgeous drive. It wasn't ugly or anything, but with our eyes so used to Glacier, Grand Tetons, Arches, Bryce and Zion National Parks, it just seemed only so-so.

Long driving vistas replete with wildlife and snow in May! Roads were in good shape and many coffee huts along the way.

this is one of the most scenic drives in SW Montana- soaring cliffs, beautiful river alongside road, forests and wildlife. Driver must pay attention to road as curves can be tough. Definitely worth the drive to Big Sky or West Yellowstone
