Sounds like I'd hit all the good routes, but the Yellowstone traffic in mid-July has me a little worried. Is it bad all summer? Bad as in bumper to bumper or just slow and no place to pass?

There are some great roads
from OR to Lolo, namely the road from Baker City OR, up through Hells Canyon Nat Rec Area to Joesph OR and The Rattlesnake
, which is along the OR/WA state line, between Enterprise OR and Clarkston, WA, then head south once at Lolo and take the high route to Yellowstone. Traffic in Yellowstone is usually slow/stop n go in spots due to wildlife, unless there is an accident.
