Route to SW VI and back
If I had your time and money this is the route I would take to get to SWVI
From the Woodlands north thru OK city, up through the middle of Nebraska to Grand Island,Ne. Continue north to Sturgis, SD, lots going on there even before the rally, take in Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Deadwood before the rally. Continue west and making a jog north to take in Devil's Tower then head west again to Cody Wyoming.
Stay the night in Cody and take in the nightly rodeo on the west side of town.
From Cody, Wy north to Chief Joseph hwy, then on to the Beartooth pass and then thru to Red Lodge MT. From Red Lodge cut west to join i-90 for a little ways then jog up to Helena, MT. From Helena head west to Avon, MT then head north to Big Fork MT then into Kalispell, MT. From Kalispell head N then east to go into Glacier National Park and go over the "Going to the Sun" road and come out at St. Mary Montana on the east side of Glacier National Park. From St. Mary head north and cross into Canada at the Chief Mountain border crossing.
Now that you are in Canada travel north to Waterton Lakes National Park and take in the sites of this small village and the Prince of Wales hotel. From Waterton continue north to Pincher Creek, Alberta, scenic views and vistas abound along this route, watch out for free range cattle and sheep and also for wildlife such as deer, elk, moose and black and grizzly bears.
Continue north and west from Pincher Creek up highway 22, The Cowboy Trail north to Longview, Alberta. This road takes you thru the heart of Alberta's rolling ranch country, fantastic rolling foothills to the east the front range of the rockies to the west.
When you get to Longview, head west on Hwy 40 and follow that road north until you reach the host hotel, Stoney Nakoda Resort and Casino, we'll be waiting for you.
I would take 5-6 days to make this ride going north arriving on the afternoon, evening of August 1, 2016.
