One day we went on a drive through the Beartooth Mountains, from Cody, WY to Red Lodge, MT. We first climbed up the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway.
At the top of the first pass, Dead Indian Pass, is a memorial to the Nez Perce native americans, many of whom lost their lives in the battle for their land.
Whenever the WINs go on a drive, everyone wonders where we are going kayaking. They don't understand that this is the only place we have to carry our kayaks.
The scenery got even better going up to Beartooth Pass.
We got a great view of Pilot Peak, on the left, and Index Peak, on the right.
Then we got into mountain lakes and snow.
And there's the Bear's Tooth!
And more snow!
That lake is still frozen - where are my ice skates!
And we saw some very friendly ground squirrels.
One last thing - we got written up in the Cody newspaper, so now we're famous! Although there are some misstatements in the article, it was a real honor. (We don't travel in a caravan, and younger??? Than what???)
