Go across the UP of Michigan on Hwy 2, drop down to either I-90 or 94 and you can visit Mt. Rushmore and Custer's Battlefield site enroute. Lots of pioneer western history enroute. Once out west, you can enter Yellowstone via Cody or Bozeman on viable roads.

Thunder Bay was a delight. We spent an afternoon walking around the waterfront. We returned to the US in Minnesota and enjoyed Voyagers National Park and a stay in Duluth at the marina campground right by the high bridge that admits the lake ships to the harbor. We also went to Winnepeg and visited the Canadian Mint, Fort Garry, the Viking festival in Gimli and a number of other sites around Winnepeg. Then we drove up to Ashern where we saw the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Musical Ride. They perform all over the country during the summer, if you get a chance be sure to catch the show. In Regina we visited the RCMP training center and got a tour of the facilities.
Then we were off to Edmunton and Jasper. We stayed in the National Parks in Jasper, Lake Louise and Banff. All three have spectacular scenery. At Lake Louise we were treated to a Tyrolean Horn concert lakeside at the big hotel. We drove down the eastern side of the Canadian Rockies through Lake Louise and Banff and on to Calgary. From there you can drop south to Yellowstone.
We loved driving through Saskatchewan. The old wooden grain elevators are still there at each town along the railroad tracks. One of the real fun things was the penchant that Canadians have for the largest thing. In Wawa you can see the largest Canada Goose! We saw the largest Pysanky (I'll let you figure that one out!) and a whole bunch of other big things. Near Calgary they have a dinosaur museum at Drumheller and also the largest Dinosaur. If you take a side trip out of Sault Ste Mare to Sudbury you can see the big nickel.
Enjoy Canada, it is a lovely country well worth exploring. We've explored all of the provinces except Newfoundland/Labrador and Nunavut. We'll return every several years to see more.
