Last one!


Today was one of those "WOWSER" days. We drove the legendary Beartooth Highway that begins near Red Lodge, Montana. Called "the most beautiful drive in America" by travel correspondent Charles Kuralt, the road winds for 69 miles past glaciers, alpine lakes and towering peaks in Montana and Wyoming to Yellowstone National Park. Ringed by 28 peaks more than 12,000 feet high, the drive was spectacular.

Our drive ended in the tiny town of Cooke City, Montana. The drive back was a bit scary at times, we got into some very low clouds and could hardly see. Once we got back into the lower elevations, it was no problem. The drive was INCREDIBLE, we highly recommend it to everyone in the area.
