Thought I would share some pictures from our 2007 trip up through the Beartooth Mts. The road looked much narrower than it did in 1986

Maybe that's because looking at it from the windshield of Nissan pickup is much different than the windshield of a MH

Thanks Glenn,

I'm glad you enjoyed the pics.

I wish I could go there more often, it's a great place to see.

Brings back memories. If all goes well (weatherwise) we'll be cruising up the Beartooths mid-September with the 42' Bus. The time that we took our 33' Suncruiser I mounted a video camera in the windshield and videotaped the entire climb to West Summit. Now that's the kind of video you play in winter on a big screen in front of your exercise bike if you want a "virtual workout".

I remember '05. They had huge slides that spring that wiped out most of the switchbacks. We were in Red Lodge that September and took the Bus up the Chief Joseph Highway into the middle of the Beartooths. Then we back tracked to Top of the World Store, parked the Bus, and took the toad out to the West Summit area.

We're praying for no snow this fall. We got shut down due to snow twice in mid September. The worst was in 2000 in our pre-RV days. We parked our Suburban at the Best Western and the next morning we woke up to this:



They had a foot overnight and expected another foot before it stopped so we took the long way around and entered the park from the West Entrance. Everything was really slick and the ranger was turning people away at Madison Junction unless they had a reservation at Old Faithful Inn, which we did. The next day the park was closed. Every single road was ice covered. Being from Wisconsain we were prepared for any kind of weather so we pretty much had the park to ourselves and it was a great experience.

Mark, if you get into Yellowstone, look me up. I'll be at Fishing Bridge RV Park until September 30th.

I'll add my concurrance and a couple more pictures to the beautiful scenery when driving the Beartooth Highway. We rode the highway last Summer as we entered the NorthEast Entrance of Yellowstone.

Yep, that's the road carved into the edge of the mountain on the left side of the photo.

Nice pictures.

I wish I could find some of my old pictures that show that highway propped up with timbers, instead of the metal supports that they use today.

GREAT PHOTOS. That is some beautiful country. Got a favor to ask. For those of us, who suffer from a travel deficiency disorder, when the photos are posted would the poster please tell us where they are (state, province, etc)?

Thanks.

Sorry Wendell,

Mine were taken on route 212 close to the border of Wyoming and Montana across the Beartooh Mountains.

Actually, we're trying to keep it a secret so that nobody else shows up.

Every year there's more and more travelers on this road. I liked it better in the old days when it was just God and me up there.

The problem is I keep opening my big mouth and others want to go too.

Just keep mentioning how steep, twisty, narrow roads, lots of ups and downs and maybe they won't come! then we can have it all to ourselves! showing lots of pics really isn't helping matters, lol
