June 9-19: The Trail of the Great Bear

Trail of the Great Bear Dental CE

  • Seven national parks.
  • 3000 miles of scenic byways.
  • Bear, moose, elk, big horn sheep, mountain goats at your fingertips.
  • Glaciers, lakes and rivers around every bend of the road.
  • Great CE and new friendships for a lifetime.

This is just a taste of what our international ride from Provo, Utah, through the majestic western US and Canadian Rockies (to our turning point in Jasper, Alberta) and back will put on your plate.

Our kick-off is in Provo, Utah, and from there to famous Jackson Hole, Wyoming, for the first night. The next day takes us through the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone, just in time for lunch in West Yellowstone, Montana. Heading northwest to Ennis, Montana, the fly-fishing capitol of the US, we stay on the bank of the Madison River.

Next day, we find ourselves riding our Harley’s through “Big Sky Country“, staying next to Flathead Lake in Big Fork, Montana. A leisure tour of Glacier National Park with plenty of time to enjoy its unique beauty before our overnight in East Glacier. Enjoy the view out your hotel window of glaciers, lakes and glacier-fed rivers.

Next day we cross the border into Canada (passport required) and we are immediately in Waterton National Park. After lunch on the road, we wind our way along the “Cowboy Trail” in southern Alberta for our stay in the unbelievable Banff National Park. An amazing journey up the Icefields Parkway (180 miles) to the 5-Star Jasper Lake Lodge is our dream ride the following day. This is where we make the turn to head back south for an early arrival at Lake Louise at the famous (or infamous) Deer Lodge.

Then, it is back across the border through southern British Columbia and into the panhandle area of Idaho, enjoying the lakeside lodge at Sand Point. South to Salmon, Idaho, and high mountain passes, alpine valleys, and beautiful ranch land gets us back across the Tetons to Jackson Hole, where we will spend our final night together.

Our Saturday morning departure from Jackson takes us back to Provo by early afternoon where you turn in your iron horse and get back on four wheels.

You are now an official “Iron Butt” Graduate and have 20 hours of CE credit!
