We all have our parochialisms, apparently.

It took me a minute to understand your post. I assume you mean when driving from Colorado to Northern Idaho in which case you would be correct. Montana is a huge State especially on this route, but even moreso east/west on I-90/94.

As I pointed out earlier, Montana is not ALL terrific scenery. There are long stretches that are quite mundane, (think I-94 Billings to the ND border), but more than made up for when you hit the mountain areas.

What was so hard to understand? No, I'm quite sure he means between Idaho and Wyoming. I've done it myself, without even coming close to traveling the entire state of Montana west-to-east and yet it still takes a VERY LONG time. What does Colorado have anything to do with it?

The poster lists Colorado as his location. To get from there to Northern Idaho the route is I-25 north to I-90 at Buffalo, WY, then I-90 up to Billings to eventually connect with Northern Idaho. Perhaps the poster can clarify, but I believe this is what he meant.

Yes, it's well over 500 miles long going I-90 across Montana. I'm sure 90 to 94 is longer.

Oh okay, if that's the case, then I get the Colorado reference now. I have driven thru part of Wyoming east and west to get to South Dakota; ditto with Montana- east and west beginning in Spokane, WA to get to Yellowstone. Each one, just a small slither of the drive if you took the interstate from end to end. Even with the high speed limit (in fact at the time, there was no daytime speed limit in Montana!!) I could have gone from Maryland to Maine and seven states in between in the same amount of time.

You'd have to be feeling a little adventurous to bypass 25 going north and 90 going north/northwest if the Denver area were a starting point en route to Northern ID. Who has that kind of time...
