Beartooth Highway

Beartooth pass

One of the keys to exploring the beauty of the west lies in taking the scenic roads.  Thanks to Tommy Sils, I learned of some of the roads less traveled before leaving Gastonia.  Today, we set out on one of the most spectacular roads in America.  The Beartooth Highway leaves the northeast corner of Yellowstone traveling toward Billings, MT.  The switchback road ascends to nearly 11,000 feet above sea level.  Frozen lakes and deep snow drifts await you at the summit.  To our surprise, there were snowboarders on the side of the road plummeting down from one switchback to the next.

Notice the front of the car behind us for the depth of the snow

The dot in the center is a snowboarder. CRAZY!
