Hopefully one of you folks out west can help me out. On the way to Spokane I hope to hit Glacier Park and Lolo Pass. My riding partner and I can't seem to agree on the best route from Columbia Falls to Missoula. I'd like to ride rt 93 along Flathead Lake right into Missoula. It's marked scenic on my atlas but not my friends. He thinks we should take rt 83 which would swing us out to the east befor hitting rt 200 into Missoula. That road is marked scenic on his atlas. It's obviously a longer ride but seems to avoid a lot of small towns (and allow some higher speeds ). 83 seems to be in a valley all the way while 93 appears to wind around a bit more. We've also considered rt 35 that goes along the east shore of Flathead lake before rejoing rt 93. Has anyone riden any (or all) of these roads? Would you choose one over the other? I'd love to hear your opinion as well as any desciptions you'd care to share. If anyone has any pictures from these roads that would be great too!
