Photo of the Week - Gardner Lake Overlook




Beartooth Highway, Wyoming

The Wyoming tour that I took last fall included a little bit of exploration along the famous Beartooth Highway. Charles Kuralt designated it as “the most beautiful drive in America.” This All-American Road was first opened 80 years ago and stretches 68 miles between Cooke City and Red Lodge, Montana. It is only open from May to October, and I traveled along it the day before it closed down last year. 

Reaching a top elevation of 10,947 feet, the Beartooth Highway is a wild and adventuresome ride through Wyoming and Montana wilderness, filled with hairpin turns. And along the way, you get treated to grand vistas like this one at Gardner Lake.
