Amazing amount of information. We've routed ourselves onto Route 2. So many state parks in the UP and in MI and MN, most are marked "primitive" but some will take a TC. Hookups won't matter, just want to see if those forests look like Maine and whose mosquitos are bigger. Also doing a dip down to the Theodore Roosevelt National Park in ND.

We have the MT state brochure for all their dinosaur museums, digs, exhibits so we'll do a lot of walking around them. Last summer we spent time in Yellowstone down into the incredible rocks of Utah. This year we'll stay a bit greener and wetter.

Take another look at the map.. See that "broken in pieces area" in the northwest corner? Be a shame to come that far and not visit the San Juan Islands. You can hook up in our yard and hop a ferry to take through the islands.

If your schedule permits go up to the North Cascades Loop through Twisp and Winthrop. Winthrop is a neat little town. The mountains are beautiful.

By all means don't miss Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens.

When you are in Glacier, come north to Waterton National Park. Some great scenery and fantastic camping. If you have time go a little farther north and see Kananaskis Park and Lake Louise - you will love the scenery or you can catch it on your way to Alaska. Another great stop if you like history is Writing On Stone Park just over the border in Alberta.

As long as your coming down through the Soo (Sault Ste. Marie, MI) take 28 rather than 2 and visit Grand Marais. It's 25 miles north of Sceney. Great National Park, beautiful Lake Superior beaches etc. then off to Munising and Marquette. All great beaches, fun places to camp and plenty of bike trails if you're bringing them along.

...almost forgot this one:

Petroglyph Provincial Park; the largest agglomeration of pre-historic rock carvings in the country, and perhaps the largest in northern half of North America:

2 hours and 30 minutes (200 kilometers or 120 miles) from Gananoque (just after crossing the bridge into Canada). It's on a west-north-west trajectory if you consider Ottawa (nearly) due north of your crossover into the country. After visiting this unbelievable site, continue north up to the Trans Canada Hwy to Pembroke, and continue on your original route...

Park link here-->

Map of region here-->

I've seen rock art sites in South America, Central America, Mexico and the Southwest, and nothing compares to the sheer enormity and intriguing designs at this site!

Cheers,

Silver - thanks for both of the petroglyph sites. We are strongly considering going down #7 through Kingston and over to Peterborough to this park. I have a knit friend in Kingston I'd like to see anyway.

Lar's - nice site also. No bikes - I fell off last time I was on one and the knee still hurts

All packed except for the refrigerator. On The Road Again !

If you are into dinasaurs make sure you stop in Bozeman MT and take in the Museum of the Rockies. It has a fantastic exhibit about most of the finds in MT. You could also travel US89 from Vaughn to Browning on your way to Glacier and stop in Choteau to tour Egg Mountain which is an active dinasaur dig along the Rocky Mountain Front.

We have the brochure for the "Montana Dinosaur Trail" and have them all mapped out on our Delorme Map. Most of the western states have these brochures available. We've hit quite a few in Wyoming already but are always up for more. There is also a pretty good yarn shop in Bozeman!
