Need Info route Northern BC to Yellowstone

Hi all,
we are planning a quick trip down to the states first 2 weeks in August, only got 2 weeks of vacation so it will be a quick one. Thinking about going to Yellowstone and need some info. traveling with a 40' skoolie. What can you guys that have been there or are from around there reccommend. What route should we travel where should we stop, what needs to be seen.
Was thinking of coming down HWY 2 from Calgary or 93 from the BC interior.
the kids also want to go somewhere with a warm sandy beach as we dont have that up here.
So any tips are appreciated.

I guess you could come down through Crows Nest and fiddle around near Kalispell. Then you could then head down to I-90 and head east to Livingston and go south from there into the park. Unless you want to travel all secondary roads. If thats the case, you could come south of Cardston and go a bunch of different ways.

Hmmm...warm sandy beach...in MT.....

the warm sandy beaches dont have to be in MT but maybe on the way back we loop through Washington if i rember correctly there is some desert area around there somewhere.

Mt. Rushmore, Badlands and even stopped at Walls drug store..... We covered 11 states on the way up and 13 on the way back.... Great trip!!!!

And what stops are a must on this trip, any issues through the parks with the bus being to big?

You know, I have never fished Trout Creek, so lets just both make the assumption there is trout in it.
If you are going to run by this way, holler here or send smoke signals or something.
