​DAY 4 Seattle to Cle Elum

This moderately-scenic drive is best done with a short detour to Snoqualmie Falls, and the nearby town of North Bend. Both locations were made famous by Twin Peaks: Snoqualmie Falls was the viewpoint used for its opening credits, and North Bend is home to the Twede Café (known in the show as the Double R Diner, and the place to go for some cherry pie and ‘damn fine cup of coffee’.

​DAY 5 Cle Elum

A small town kind-of city, Cle Elum is your gateway to the American west, with access to thousands of acres of mountain forest and high country lakes and streams – a real summer paradise and in winter, a haven for cross-country skiers and snowmobilers. Located in the Cascade Mountains, it’s also just 15 minutes from Roslyn, where hit show ‘Northern Exposure’ was filmed.
​DAY 6 Cle Elum to Darby
Drive Time: 7 hours, 10 minutes | Distance: 495 miles

A large part of this drive can be pretty tedious with little to see, but when you do get to the wonderful Ranch at Rock Creek, you'll see just why it was worth the trek.

The only ‘Forbes’ Magazine five-star guest ranch, The Ranch at Rock Creek offers the very best in Western adventure, serene beauty and grand luxury under Montana's Big Skies.

Cheer on the cowboys and cowgirls at one of the rodeos; immerse yourself in the Montana wilderness while fly-fishing, horseback riding, or hiking; head out on an evening stagecoach ride, then sample the delectable farm-to-fork cuisine, and later, toast s’mores around the bonfire
​DAY 9 Darby to Yellowstone National Park
Drive Time: 4 hours, 10 minutes | Distance: 239 miles

Today you will drive to Yellowstone, the second best national park in the USA. We prefer taking Highway 287 (known as the Backroad to Yellowstone) because it gets you off the freeway sooner.

​DAY 10 Yellowstone National Park

With its dramatic peaks and pristine lakes, Yellowstone is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise, where multi-coloured pools swirl around hot springs, verdant forests weave past expansive meadows, and volatile geysers launch streams of steaming water toward the sky. There's no doubt whatsoever that the park is extraordinary, and while you traverse the park's 3000-plus square miles of mountains, canyons, geysers and waterfalls, be prepared to share the trails with its more permanent residents, like buffalo, elk and sometimes even grizzlies.
​DAY 11 Yellowstone National Park to Jackson Hole
