On September 20th, after staying overnight in Red Lodge, Montana, we drove the Beartooth Highway toward Yellowstone National Park.
The Beartooth Highway is 68-miles long, beginning just south of Red Lodge, Montana, at an elevation of 6,400 feet, and ending near Cooke City and Silver Gate, Montana and the Northeast Entrance to Yellowstone National Park. The road rises to 10, 947 feet at Beartooth Pass in Wyoming. A 54-mile section of the Highway, beginning eight miles south and east of Red Lodge and ending just east of Cooke City, Montana has been awarded the National Scenic Byways "All-American Road" status.

Wildfires in the surrounding areas created a smoky haze over the mountain vistas.
This roadside waterfall caught our attention.
