Buttes, rocks, and views

Unbelievable scenery at on the Beartooth highway, as we climb up the twisty road and over the pass.  This is rugged country just to the northeast of Yellowstone park in Montana.

Beartooth lake and butte

The butte is a sedimentary upheaval of an ancient seabed dating 300-500 million years in age. It is surrounded by granite mountains.

Beartooth highway snakes its way up to the top of an 11,000 foot path.

Top of Beartooth Pass

The top of the pass is a small hill of boulders.

Even the smoke from the fires in Yellowstone can’t mar the view.
