I live in Billings, and am very supportive of it in many ways. However given your short time and preferred interests, I will reluctantly say that many of the recommended places are probably better. Historyfan's first post is an excellent suggestion. The drive to Yellowstone Park from Bozeman will take you over to Livingston then down through Paradise Valley (aptly named and unless you live in Switzerland), enter the Park through Gardiner then proceed east through the Lamar Valley, which is one of the best routes to see wildlife (including bears)to the Northeast entry of Yellowstone Park. From Cooke City at the top, over and down the Beartooth highway through Red Lodge to Billings. If you want to see the geothermal show in the Park, you'll have to alter your route somewhat.

From Bozeman I would drive down the canyon (highway191) to West Yellowstone....
to Four Corners, then Gallatin Gateway, then Big Sky, then West Yellowstone.


On return trip I would go the (highway 287) Hebgen Lake & Ennis (stay overnight)...then next day to Virginia City & Nevada City, back to Ennis then...to McAllister, Norris, Bozeman.


Once you plan your trip make hotel reservations.

Guys.

A friend is joining. We got a change in the plan, we are not going to Yellowstone. She has asthma and she is worried about the altitude there.

Instead, we are thinking of seeing Montana and wondering if we can also visit North and South Dakota! We can add two more days to the trip. Is it possible? I am checking GoogleMaps but not sure which towns should we consider... A trip from Billings to N/S Dakota will be an option...

Any piece of advice? Safety tips?

Yellowstone is only 8000 feet in elevation. It would be summer air not the cold frigid winter air which typically irritates asthmatics.

The lower 3000 feet of eastern Montana & Dakota is full of pollen right now. Most areas east to Dakotas have sky high daily pollen counts because we've had a really wet summer here.

One of my favorite places is the Black Hills in South Dakota, also the site of Mt. Rushmore. For me, the whole area is a must see.

Unlike Billings
