In the summer this is wonderful for family outings. Miles to romp. Safe, incredible vistas, bring a picnic, camera, water & the joy of no TV, just silence in nature.

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.
