Yesterday I showed you the first couple of days of our trip, with stops in Custer and Spearfish SD, and Billings MT. Next we headed out early in the morning to drive the Beartooth Highway. It stretches from Red Lodge MT to Cooke City. It's been called one of America's most beautiful highways, and I'd have to say that I agree. It's also a rather stomach dropping drive too, as you reach an altitude of 10,947ft!
At one of the overlooks, there were tons of ground squirrels and chipmunks just begging for something to eat. So my daughter and I were having a blast feeding them peanuts. So much so that I didn't want to stop!
Here we are, me and my girl!
These pictures start to tell you just how high up we were. I have to admit that I was having a hard time looking down without getting the heebeejeebees!
But the views were worth it! So beautiful!
By now we were at the very top, with 360 degree views of the Beartooth Plateau and surrounding mountain peaks. There we saw a group of big horn sheep, but we couldn't stop to take a pic darn it!
As we started to descend on the other side, we were treated with stunning views of the Absaroka-Beartooth wilderness.
Above is a pic of Pilot and Index Peaks.
