Along Kings Hill Scenic Byway, MT
We took the Kings Hill Scenic Byway (Hwy 89) south from Belt, through a beautiful valley, alongside Belt Creek, into Lewis and Clarke NF. It's a lovely drive through the Little Belt Mountains, over Kings Hill Pass, el 7393, past Showdown ski area to White Sulphur Springs where we turn east on Hwy 12. As we head east, it becomes drier, less green, more sage.
We've only gone about 1/4 of this trip on interstate highways. In our opinion, if you're not in a hurry, the scenic byways are the way to go.
At Billings we got on I-90 east and stopped at the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. They have quite a museum there and the grave markers and interpretive trail are pretty impressive. There are yellow wildflowers everywhere.
