Rt. 2 - Montana to Michigan

We will leave Bozeman on 7/5/08 heading to Glacier National Park. We plan to follow route 2 through Montana to Michigan and then south to Delaware. Please advise campgrounds and interesting places along route 2. Thanks,

My grandfather used to say there's only three strands of barbed wire between North Dakota and the North Pole. It can get windy along the Hi-Line (the Montanan name for Route 2) so hang on to your hat. Once you leave Glacier the country gets very "Great Plains." If you like fishing, you could sneak down to Fort Peck. Otherwise, it's a lot of dry land wheat and wide open country.

You taught me something -- that's a single route clear across the northern tier. The tumbleweed stops blowing about the time you get to Bemidji, MN. Itasca State Park is just south of there -- woodland, good bicycling in the park, lakes, pines, lodge/restaurant in the park, source of the Mississippi river -- high usage but probably okay if you arrive during the week.

There's a lot of forest & lakes between Bemidji & Duluth. Grand Rapids is a paper mill town. We love Duluth down by the lake -- Canal Park Shopping & Dining Duluth, Minnesota. You can stop for sandwich & coffee -- $3-5 to park in the Duluth Convention Center parking lot and you're 10 minutes walk from the heart of Canal Park. Guaranteed not to be hot weather down by the lake! There is camping at a nearby marina (really! we stayed there in May, also featured in the recent Airstream Life).

Bayfield WI is a nice little town at the Apostle Islands. It's like Door County but 1/20th the size and 1/50th the people. Just don't tell anybody! Good eats at Maggie's. Flamingos are secondary... Copper Falls State Park just south of Ashland WI is a beautiful north country river with lovely hikes.

I'd have a hard time just sticking to U.S. 2 in da U.P. Please post back here and let us know what you enjoyed on your trip!
