If you visit the Church in St Ignatius, and are driving North on 93 toward Polson, I recommend you take time to stop at the Ninepipes Museum of Early Montana. It's only a few miles out of town on the right. It has some great pictures of the historical development of Montana, and it gives you a sense of reverence for the Native American culture and contribution.

Ninepipes Museum also has fantastic museum pieces of native items and pioneer family memorbilia. Kids will love the last room of the museum with the animal set up. And the view of the mountains from the Ninepipes is fantastic. You can even go fishing across the road.

Well the good news is the snow should be over for a little while! Snowed yesterday as a matter of fact but is supposed to be in the 80's at the end of next week. Going to the sun road will not be open until sometime next month I guess, they're runing about 2 weeks behind according to my neighbor who's on the road clearing crew. As of right now most of the park is still shut down for the winter so you might want to check GNP's web site and see what it has to say.
If you can delay your trip until the end of the month or middle of next month I'd suggest it especially because flood advisories are being given on the news stations due to the rapid melt expected and the added moisture we got up until yesterday.
While I'm glad to see our brothers from across the pond to be honest there's not much to see as of yet because winter just won't stop yet.
Happy trails....

There's only one road to and through Coram, as the town is about the size of a sneeze. It's on Hwy 2, the road to Glacier Park. You can't miss the signs for the bear park... BE SURE TO KEEP YOUR WINDOWS UP AND YOUR DOORS LOCKED when you're driving through the Great Bear Adventure.

Another great bear park to check out is BEAR WORLD. It's on highway 20 just outside of Rexburg, Idaho which is only 75 miles southwest of Yellowstone. We stop there every summer on our way up to Yellowstone, it's great! They have grizzlies, black bears, and wolves! You drive thru them all, and then at the end you can park and go thru the visitor's center where they almost always have tiny bear cubs that are so fun to watch up close in a nice area that was built for them. The whole experience costs about $35 per car to drive thru, and we think it is well worth it!

Blah..
If you want to see wildlife it's better to run around in the back-country. Even Yellowstone is a completely different place when you get out there a few miles away from the roads. All it takes is a little fitness, some camp skills and a touch of common sense.

I suppose places like the Grizzly center in West Yellowstone or the bear cage someone set up between Bozeman and Livingston are cool to people that live in the 'burbs or the city, but that ain't wildlife.. it's conditioned life set up for human amusement.

Amen! I have always had a dislike for the "caged bears" outside of Glacier since the guy built the place. In a place like Montana, there's no need for caged bears or "zoo like tourist attractions". We have plenty of it in the woods.

Agreed!! Spend a couple of days up in the park actually walking around and you'll see plenty of wildlife. Heck they even have free shuttles to and from most trail heads now.
