Chief Joseph Highway & Beartooth #1

Today is the day I've looked forward to for a long time, for today we are traveling  the Chief Joseph highway, and on to the Beartooth Pass and from there to Red Lodge, Mt. There have been many reviews written, and I have personally talked to many people who have experienced this trip, and without exception, all have talked in superlatives of the experience. Well, we have made the trip, and can confirm all the comments are indeed true. This is without a doubt, some of the most spectacular scenery we have ever experienced.  I've included quite a few pictures of the Chief Joseph Highway trip, and about twice as many of the Bear Tooth Pass leg of the trip. The photographs pretty much speak for themselves, but don't do justice to the beauty and magnitude of this beautiful area. There are so many pictures, I've decided to post them in two separate blogs. One disappointment of the trip is that we didn't have time to explore Red Lodge due to spending so much time on the scenic part of the trip. Guess we'll just have to come back!  The trip we made today was about 200 miles and lasted most of the day.

  1. Drop-dead gorgeous scenery!!!! Have you moved on from Cody - or was this a day trip? If it was a day-trip - it was a long one. Assuming ya'll will be going to Yellowstone.

  2. We're leaving tomorrow for The Tetons, and yes it was a day trip.

  3. Beautiful Country isn't it. Your photos are very good. I will be in Athol ID on the 8th.
