Often described as the most beautiful road in America, the Beartooth Highway is steep, windy and spectacular!
After breakfast at a local diner in White Sulphur Springs (great, crispy hashbrowns, tender chicken fried steak – OMG are we eating this?) the drive to Red Lodge, Montana took us through pretty ranch country. Out of Red Lodge, we started climbing the narrow, winding road to Beartooth Pass at 10,947 ft.
Finding Island Lake campground (9,500ft) closed for the season, we decided to camp at the boat ramp, next to the lake. Technically illegal, but sooo pretty!
