    that's what I am worried about we were going to go to glacier national park but I am afraid of the passes still being closed. so I started to look for the "must do" kind of things to try and make memories for the kids'

    From home to Cheyenne you will have to be creative. Bring binoculars and keep an eye out for Antelopes and Prairie dog towns. Get off of the main highways to eat at a family owned cafe instead of McDonalds. If you travel at night, again get off of the main roads and look at the stars if the skies are clear. Maybe the kids can pick out satellites. Go to a small town airport. Many have a place to eat. Take a walk and let the kids see small airplanes up close, and watch some take off and land. Talk to a pilot, maybe he will show them his airplane or possibly let them sit in it. Don't go near a moving airplane. If you see giant windmills be sure to drive all of the way up to them and see how big the base is and listen to the giant blades go around.

    Have a good trip!

    Since you're going through Alberta Dinosaur Provincial Park is just a few klicks off the highway in Patrica AL. Lots of Dinosaur stuff for kids.
    Also if you get of I-15 at Shelby MT it's an easy trip to East Glacier entrance to Glacier National Park.
    A nice little detour that wife would like is to swing through Banff and maybe Jasper then back to highway.
    A night at Banff Springs Hotel will earn you quite a few brownie points. Kids will like hitting hot springs pool.

    Breck (post#14) has some great suggestions ... If the kids are into dinosaurs check out Drumheller, Alberta and area and the Banff / Jasper highway as you head north depending upon where you are going to catch the Alcan Hwy

    As the Alcan starts in Dawson Creek BC and runs to Delta Junction, AK .... what I meant to say was are you going to cut up through Alberta or continue into BC and head north up the Cassier Highway and catch the Alcan near Watson Lake, YT? If you are planning heading north through Alberta then Drumheller, Banff and Jasper could be enroute! Enjoy!
