After breakfast at Granny’s Restaurant in downtown Cody Wyoming we headed up to Chief Joseph’s Scenic Byway on our way to the Beartooth Scenic Highway which took us up to the top of Beartooth Butte. It was about 50 mile ride which took us over four hours with stops to take in the beautiful scenery.
Beautiful Beartooth Lake on the way up the mountain.
At one of the scenic overlooks along the highway.
At another overlook near the summit.
We passed into Montana to finish the climb to the top of Beartooth.
At the summit. Elevation 10,947 ft. I could tell that there was less oxygen at that level. I got tired walking out to the edge to take this picture. The temperature was about 15 degrees cooler than it was at the bottom of the mountain.
On the way down. We ended up in Red Lodge Montana where we had lunch.
This little stream was behind the Red Box Drive-In Diner in Red Lodge Montana (where we had lunch).
Tommorrow: An early start to visit Yellowstone National Park, then we begin the journey home. I’ll try to post tomorrow night if I have internet access wherever we stop. (So far - so good, as far as that goes).
