Jun 11, 2018 - Red Lodge, Montana

We are in Montana. I have many places I want to visit. Most can be visited as we travel westbound or eastbound. I thought we could get into Cody now. Cody is a gateway to Yellowstone and gets very busy. It is already busy. Oops. I called Red Lodge last night and made reservations for two nights. The Beartooth Highway is open. I have not given up on Cody but for now we head to Red Lodge. We have errands to take care of in Billings. There is no need to rush. The Verizon Store opens at 10:00. Not everyone can travel like us. We have our...

Sep 11, 2017 - Tent Camping

Tent camping We bought a tent! When we have a weekend off, especially in the summer, we like to get out of the park. We bought a tent so we don’t need to haul the trailer with us just for the weekend. The kids made bets thinking the tent would be up for sale the next day on Craig’s List or eBay, but it wasn’t! We had a great time on the few camping trips we got in. One of them we went north of Yellowstone National Park along the Yellowstone River to go fishing. It was great. We did not catch fish but had fun trying. The water was full and...

Jul 4, 2016 - Beartooth Pass Highway

Beartooth Pass Highway The Beartooth Pass Highway runs for approximately 60 miles from Red Lodge, Montana to the Northeast entrance of Yellowstone NP near Cooke, Wyoming. At the summit, the elevation of the highway is 10,947 feet. The namesake “Beartooth” is an inverted “V” rock formation in the mountains. We have now driven the Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park, the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier and now the Beartooth Pass Highway. All three roads are spectacular. We have enjoyed them all. Beverly especially wanted to...

Jun 18, 2015 - Beartooth All-American Highway

Today, we took a long drive. Well, the distance was not that long, but it took nearly all day. The entire trip was about 160 miles, but our time was consumed in stopping to take pictures and slow driving on some of the roads. Actually, we drove on two scenic highways today. The first highway was the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway. This is the route that Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce Indians took during his attempt to lead his tribe out of Yellowstone into Canada and escape the US Cavalry in 1877. It winds through the Shoshone National Forest...

Where RV Now?

Sep 24, 2014 - Garryowen to Red Lodge, MT

September 24, 2014 7 Ranch camp is wonderfully clean with lots of amenities including country music in the bathrooms! Owners are very hospitable even offering ice cream upon check in. Lovely evening where we were able to sleep with all of the doors open. Our first stop was Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument that memorializes a major battle fought on June 25, 1876 between the Lakota, Cheyenne and 4 Arapaho Indians against the US Army. The Ranger who explained the battle was a Crow Indian. The Crows have lived in the area since the...

Aug 8, 2014 - Beartooth & Chief Joseph

The Beartooth Highway is a 68 mile stretch of US Highway 212 that, from its western most terminus at the Northeast entrance to Yellowstone National Park, runs east to Red Lodge, Montana. While the Highway begins and ends in Montana, a large portion lies within the northwest corner of the State of Wyoming. Because the Beartooth Highway lies within National Forest and National Wilderness boundaries services along the route are limited to rest areas and interpretive sites, with the exception of one commercial property – Top of the World Store...

2014 RV Adventure

Aug 4, 2014 - Parkside National Forest Campground

Oops! I did not add the Lewis and Clark Center pictures so they are in with this blog instead of the last blog. Monday, August 4, 2014 -- Parkside National Forest in the Beartooth Wilderness. The high today is 87 degrees and we are looking forward to having much cooler temperatures in the higher elevations. Driving to the National Forest Campground (Parkside) we drove in a few heavy showers. We are parked in a wonderful spot. It is along a creek and at night the sound of the running water is soothing. There was hail on the side of the road...

Aug 3, 2013 - Beartooth Mtns Montana

We drove back down the one vehicle dirt (and mud due last night's storm) road to the main road and continued on to the Beartooths. Hwy 212 maybe one of the most beautiful roads ever. There are no towns and it reaches up to 10799 at the pass. There is still snow on some of the mt sides and the temp at the top was @48. Wedrove on towards Red Lodge mt and stopped to camp at Park side campground since once again it was getting late and we would be out of the Shoshone Natl forest if we went all the way to RL. What a perfect pay campground right...

Jul 23, 2012 - Beartooth Highway, Chief Joseph Highway

Since the weather is much cooler in Red Lodge than Billings, we decided to try a campground a couple of people had told us about...Perry's RV Park. It was a nice park, but a little tight and we never saw the grizzly with her two cubs that supposedly roams the campground at night. We drove the Beartooth Highway again (drove it a few weeks ago whole staying in Billings) and saw much less snow this time around but sill fantastic views. This time we took the Chief Joseph Scenic highway back toward Billings. That part of the drive was...

Summer 2012

Aug 8, 2011 - Beartooth Highway & Chief Joseph Scenic Byway

Oh, wow! Another day of total sensory overload! Today we drove the Beartooth Highway and the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway in Montana/Wyoming. The scenic drive started out in Red Lodge, MT and dipped down into Wyoming, and then back into Cooke City, Montana. But we had to drive about 50 miles or more to get to Red Lodge, MT to start the “scenic” part of the drive, so by the time the day was over we traveled over 300 miles and were on the road for about nine hours! We had lunch in Cooke City, and then returned to Columbus, MT, where we are...
