Driving from Minneapolis, MN to Portland, OR at the end of the week. Looking for suggestions on what to do along the way. Bonus: Yellowstone for a day?

Late in the planning, apologies.
I'm roadtripping with a friend from Minneapolis to Portland this week. We're a little flexible time-wise, and we're looking for neat things to do along the way.
We're taking the I-90/I-94 route through ND, MT, ID, WA and OR.
One specific thing: we're considering Yellowstone for a day (from the North/Gardiner entrance) and wondering if it's doable (or a good idea) to do Yellowstone this time of year for just a day from that entrance. It's unseasonably warm up here, but I've never been to Yellowstone and my friend has only been in the summer, so we're wondering if it's worth making the detour.
Any other suggestions? Any things to look out for? Any advice weather-wise? From what we've looked up, it seems a relatively mild winter in most of the places on our route. We're driving a Subaru Outback.
We're outdoorsy-type people, but are interested in anything interesting, really - neat museums, points of interest, great sandwich places, etc.
