Change things up with these side-trips from Gardiner: West Yellowstone (Museum of the Yellowstone, Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center, &more), Sacajawea Park (in Polson) and Cooke City (Yellowstone Trading Post & Clay Butte Fire Lookout Tower). There's much more to do: trot along with a tour on horseback, explore and take pictures at Beartooth Hwy, and explore the activities along Yellowstone River.

To find photos, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Gardiner trip itinerary builder website.

The time zone difference moving from Pacific Standard Time to Mountain Standard Time is 1 hour. Expect a bit cooler weather when traveling from Lewiston in August: highs in Gardiner hover around °F, while lows dip to °F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Tue) so you can go by car to West Glacier.
