101 Things To Do: Vacation Adventures in Mountain Country
Great idea #55: Scenic Drives
Beartooth Pass—Truly one of the most spectacular, not-to-be-missed drives in America. Between Red Lodge, Montana, and the Northeast Entrance of YNP, the highway switchbacks up the mountainside to above timberline and the 10,940-foot summit. Along the way crashing waterfalls, cold mountain streams and deep-blue alpine lakes dot the landscape, while jagged granite peaks jut into the sky. The excursion passes from sub-alpine to alpine environments. Give yourself plenty of time, because frequent stops are needed–and a snowball fight in July is required!
