Changing Lives and Bringing History to Life, One Revolution at a Time!

July 11 Bear Tooth Hwy on the way to #NatlParkService Yellowstone Park

Leaving Billings, MT and the KOA campgrounds we headed toward the Bear Tooth Highway. A beautiful mountain pass into Wyoming. Yellowstone National Park is only 120+ miles away thru the pass. We expect it to take us 3hrs.

We climbed to the highest point in the US and overlooked mountains! 1000+ ft from the top we saw a turnout that allowed a view of a recessed area that was being fed by melting snow and there was a lake there! Well, a very large pond on top of the mountain. We began our trek to the edge of the lake. On the way we slid in the snow, saw beautiful (how many times will I use that word on this blog) flora and lush scenery. It was breathtaking, literally. Because, on the way back up the hill at that elevation every time I crouched to take a photo of a flower I arose breathless. But the air was CLEAN and recovery was quick.

We hit a lookout point where the squirrels were everywhere. The photos tell the story better than I can convey the experience. Please, by all means, enjoy.
