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.
