What a beautiful drive! The famous Beartooth Highway — “America’s Highway” — runs through the Custer National Forest and Shoshone National Forest and near the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness in Wyoming and Montana along the gorgeous Beartooth and Absaroka Mountains. We got to 10,900 feet in elevation, stepped out into wind gusts about 40 mph, and while I was taking pictures it started sleeting. Snowstorms are possible any month of the year and the road is passable only from May into September.

Barb Tillett and her husband enjoy exploring the back roads of America and have traveled extensively including Alaska, winter snowmobiling in Yellowstone National Park, Mississippi, Florida, and just about every state in the U.S. but especially the Eastern Seaboard. One of her great joys in life is sitting on an ocean beach reading a book. Barb and her husband live in Augusta County, Virginia.
