Beartooth Pass

The Beartooth Highway isn't exactly the most direct route between Seattle and Minnesota, but for some reason, we keep coming back. Maybe it's because it isn't the most direct route. But as much as anything, it's about being able to drive through a landscape not normally accessible to station wagons. The high plateau offers incredible vistas across both this range and the Absarokas, as well as down into the Clarks Fork and Rock Creek Valleys.

We woke in Red Lodge the next morning to cold drizzle and we understand the pass was closed later in the day for a little while due to snow.
