US20 in Montana: A Brief Ride

The longest road spends the shortest time in Montana, traveling only about 10 miles in a short finger of the state that juts between Wyoming and Idaho in the southwestern portion of the state. US Route 20 heads west into Montana from Wyoming and the west entrance of Yellowstone National Park. As it goes through the town of West Yellowstone, it is known as Yellowstone Avenue, Canyon Street, and Firehole Avenue. Continuing west toward Idaho, it is known as the Targhee Pass Highway. The Targhee Pass is on the continental divide, in the Henrys Lake Mountains.
