It will be a great trip.
Just fyi, Beartooth takes a few hours in July to get over to cook. 19-21st is Harley rodeo and packed with bikers and would avoid if your coming around those dates. You would need to pay for a Yellowstone park pass and license. The park is packed that time of year 35-45mph if your lucky.

If rock creek is fishing well I would always recommend it here. The drive and views are hard to beat in Red Lodge. If you like to day hike there are some nice cutts in the area lakes though.
