Definitely not short. I'm going to take a look at it tomorrow after I get back from work. I've finally found a job again and my classes/lectures started up again this week, so I'm my spare time has been severely cut back, but I don't mind. All that work is going to help pay for my trip, among other things. :P

............Hey Miles 946...............

I just thought of something that may be of great benefit to you in terms of being a GREAT source of "MONTANA INFORMATION".......hostels, camping, places to eat, traveling the state etc etc etc...

...."MOON MONTANA (MOON HANDBOOKS-Paperback edition)
authored by: W.C. McRae & Judy Jewell,

Go to Amazon.com

Do NOT pay the suggested LIST Price of 19.95!!!!!!!!!!

Choose one of the "USED" listings....such as: "booksandall" (in 'very good' condition),
for $2.18 plus shipping. (They indicate they ship Internationally as well as within the USA). This is just one of several you can choose from.

I think you will find this publication to be a GREAT source of ALL KINDS of information for your trip.

My daughter (a school teacher) has recommended these "MOON Publications" to many of her friends and former students for trips such as yours.

Thank you for that tip! I've just ordered one of them. It'll take a while to get here since it's coming from the US but it was a little bit cheaper than the one from amazon.co.uk. It looked very promising from what I could see.

Here is the train route through Glacier National Park, well worth seeing.
Glacier National Park travel guide - Wikitravel

You can take the trip from the East Glacier Park station to the West Glacier Park station and back again.

I completely agree! Glacier, in my opinion, is the most wonderful place in Montana. My boyfriend is from out of state and we do a lot of camping, hiking, and tourist activities each summer. He never really cared for Montana until I took him to Glacier Park. He fell in love with the mountains after driving the Going to the Sun Road and hiking some day trails.

We usually plan out our 3-5 day trips according to an area of Montana that we want to visit. We have done Glacier/Kalispell area where they have plenty of tourist activities. We have also enjoyed our trip that included: Virginia City, Nevada City, Lewis and Clark Caverns, Bozeman, and Museum of the Rockies.

There are plenty of ghost towns, waterfall hikes, small town rodeo's, small town "fun days", and museums all over Montana. Sometimes it is hard planning a trip due to the driving distances between towns/cities, but it is always worth the planning.

I currently live in the Great Falls area where you may enjoy visiting the CMRussell museum, Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, Giant Springs State Park, Ryan Dam (along with several others), First Peoples Buffalo Jump, and others I am probably forgetting.

I also highly recommend purchasing either a Delorme's Montana Atlas and Gazetteer or Benchmark Maps' Montana Road and Recreation Atlas. You can purchase them online for about 12-25 US dollars each. These have places like museums, points of interest, historic sites, natural wonders, campsites, and hikes marked on the maps. We use ours to plan out our trips.

Good Luck on your ventures!
