Lots of great trails! Some awesome breweries and great scenic by-ways. Is the plan to go to Glacier? and how long do you have? Montana has a lot of history and hidden gems, should be able to fill your schedule!

Mcdonald lake is right behind Allentown (Ninepipes lodge). Farmers markets, St. Ignatius Mission is cool, lots of local breweries, Buddah Garden, drive over the Jocko and check out the Seeley area.....

On your way south to Yellowstone, you can stop in Virginia City and pick some up... Bunch of garnets mixed in there as well.

Well you'll love Ennis. We play them in sports too often so I would rather sleep in the dirt!!! but Virginia City is just over the hill and has a bunch of historical significance. I love phillipsburg tho. Neat community awesome brewery (otter water or hay bag ;D my picks) and their kids play for Drummond so no hard feelings there... if I had to pick... the trace amounts of gold in VC plus the history vs historical P-burg and it sapphires... I'd go P-burg. Might be able to hit both tho... then to Yellowstone past quake and hebgen lakes which you can read about and see in my archived posts... watch out for bighorn sheep as you get to Quake. They like to hang right next to the road...
