Scenic Sunday..Beartooth Highway

During our last trip to Yellowstone we made our way to the Beartooth Highway just to say we did it and to enjoy the scenery.  The road out of Yellowstone was one long traffic jam due to roadwork but I think it was worth extra drive and time. I considered the Beartooth Hwy  a great scenic ride as much as the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier, but the Road to Hana will always be my favorite for scenery.




Beartooth Highway has some gorgeous scenery, there are little lakes along the way and the mountains in the distance and a waterfall next to the road. There were beautiful wildflowers all along the road. If you have the chance to do this drive I would say do it.

  5. Beautiful scenery. It reminds me of Norway.
    I bought a toothbrush and some toothpaste in Copenhagen and I had some extra clothes on (dubble layers) and a few other handy things in my pockets. It was a quite fun way to travel. :)

  20. These are gorgeous views! We were there at the end of September/early October, but road closures due to construction and the Arnica fire kept us from getting to see most of YNP. I guess there's always 'next time.'

    Thanks for commenting on my Scenic Sunday photo, and also for following on my photo blog.
    :D
