July 11th ~ Beartooth Highway (Day 2)
The weather had been dismal the day before, so we decided to give the Beartooth Highway a second chance to WOW us. I’m so grateful that we did!
In yesterday’s blog post I told a little bit about the drive, extreme weather we encountered with an unexpected hail storm, and being surprised by a unicycle rider climbing the mountain.
Today I just want to allow the pictures to speak for themselves, to show why the Beartooth Highway now has my (and Charles Kuralt’s) vote for America’s Most Beautiful Drive.
And that was our day on the Beartooth Highway!
GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am grateful that we have the time and flexibility to stay longer in a place. Our second day where we backtracked 3/4 of the way toward Yellowstone, it allowed us to revisit the highlight view spots, travel down some side roads off the beaten path, have a delightful picnic lunch, catch some sunshine, and more fully appreciate why this highway has been named, “America’s Most Beautiful Drive”.
NEXT STOP: Bozeman, Montana where we visit the fabulous dinosaur exhibit at Museum of the Rockies.
