Hi, I'm planning my trip Montana next month, any suggestions or must sees? I'm staying in Hamilton and plan on a lot of day trips.
TIA, Mike

If you're up for a hike, there are several trail-heads which lead back into the Bitterroot Mountains, just be ready for cold weather, it can sneak up on you. If you're a history buff, there is the St Mary's mission in Stevensville, Travelers Rest (Lewis and Clark) in Lolo and the Daly Mansion in Hamilton. A drive on the Eastside highway is nice, a little slower paced than taking 93. I'm not a Bitterrooter, so I don't have all the answers, but hopefully this gets you started. Enjoy your visit!

What (daytime) temperature ranges might I expect in mid to late Sept at higher elevations? Will I see snow showers that early? (wouldn't that be cool!)

Mid to late September? Prepare for anything!! Highs could be upper 70's to low 80's in the valleys, cooler in the mountains of course. Or it could be highs in the low 40's. And yes, be prepared for snow. It can snow any month of the year, especially in the mountains.
