Today is take two at driving the Beartooth, located between Cooke City just outside the NE entrance of Yellowstone and Red Lodge, Montana.
Early morning fog makes it hard to tell if visibility is any better this week than it was last Thursday, but as Bertha chugs over Dunraven Pass by Mt. Washburn, the fog dissipates and mountain peaks come into view. The smoke is still present but it’s much less, operation “Drive the Beartooth” is a go!
After a brief stop in Cooke City to fill up on gas and use the, errr, porta-potties provided for paying customers only I leave the small tourist town behind and am officially on the Beartooth Pass Highway.
For those who aren’t familiar with it, this is considered one of the most scenic mountain drives in the country. I’ve heard high praise of it from many-a-RVer, and I’m hoping it lives up to it’s reputation because this is going to be a 318 mile round trip for me today from Old Faithful to Red Lodge and back.
