Where can I go backcountry camping out west without a car?

This summer, I'm looking to spend several weeks somewhere out west.
I'm probably going to be working in Missoula, MT for the beginning of the summer and will likely be using public transportation / biking around.
I'm looking for good backcountry hiking / camping location(s) for a week or two at the end of the summer. I would probably have to take a bus to this location and would likely either be alone or with my girlfriend. Both of us have a fair amount of backpacking experience and have done this before(albeit not out west).
Ideally, I would love to explore Yosemite, but I'm worried that the crowds and lack of a car would be an issue. I've also considered hiking the Wind River range.
Does anyone have any experience hiking out west without a car or any recommendations of places to look?
