Often described as the most beautiful road in America, the Beartooth Highway is steep, windy and spectacular!
After breakfast at a local diner in White Sulphur Springs (great, crispy hashbrowns, tender chicken fried steak - OMG are we eating this?), the drive to Red Lodge, Montana took us through pretty ranch country. Out of Red Lodge, we started climbing the narrow, winding road to Beartooth Pass at 10,947 ft.
Finding Island Lake campground (9,500ft) closed for the season, we decided to camp at the boat ramp, next to the lake. Technically "illegal", but sooo pretty!
Clear sky, absolutely no light pollution, amazing stars, down to 30 degrees at night.
Cody Wyoming and Home
Down the Beartooth Highway, connecting to the Chief Joseph Highway and on the Cody, Wyoming to tour the Buffalo Bill Museum (Rocky Mountain Natural History, Plains Indians Life, Buffalo Bill Cody's life, Western Art and firearms history wings), an amazingly interesting and well presented museum.
Camping near Cody at the Buffalo Bill State Park.
Tomorrow - back home to Colorado
