Drive the Beartooth Highway

beartoothhwy01Record snowfall last winter guarantees the 53-mile Beartooth Highway route, between Red Lodge and Cooke City, will provide plenty of white stuff ready to be made into snowballs. Drive to the 11,000-foot summit and see how glaciers and glaciated valleys dominate the high alpine ecosystem, where grasshoppers froze some 10,000 years ago in what’s called Grasshopper Glacier.
