    Flying to Montana is pricey. You can get better rates by flying into Salt Lake City and driving (6 hours). Best cities to fly into in Montana are Billings, Bozeman or Butte.
    Private car on the backroads is probably best. Four-wheel drive is not required, but can add some fun. You cannot be in Montana without a car. Some people enjoy motorcycles, but the distances can be pretty great. Motorhomes will use lots of gas in Montana--it is big here.

    Glacier National Park uses buses that where built back in the 1930s and still in use today for transporting tourists through the park. This is a great way to see the park as the roads are very narrow and windy. This way you can relax and watch the beautiful scenary, instead of the road.

    If you can drive. The drive into Montana from any angle has got to be one of the most majestic I have ever seen!
    I don't recall seeing any buses in Helena, MT, the state capital. So you need to rent a car if you do not have one.
    The train is a waste of time becasue you see nothing. it gets you from point A to point B in an agonizingly slow way.

    The only way to get to James Kipp State Park, where we met Sid Napier of Starwest Outfitters, is by car.
    The most scenic way to explore Big Sky Country is by canoe, as Timothy demonstrates below with daughters Zoe and Hadley!

    Montana is not exactly a highly traveled area by plane, so expect high prices if flying. Most people simply drive to and through the state which is the best way. Be careful of the Fall and Winter months. Things can get a little nasty there. The picture is of the Pintlar Wilderness and another of my favorites.
