Another daily photo

Perhaps you can guess where this is? Hint, it’s considered the most scenic high mountain road in the USA. More Hint. The entire road crosses the border of Montana and Wyoming.

No it’s not the Going-To-The-Sun highway (I’ll show that soon) which is entirely in Montana. This is the famous BearTooth Highway that goes south from the really cool town of Red Lodge Montana into the northeast entrance of Yellowstone National Park. The road closes, due to snow, often early in the fall and doesn’t open again until late spring. Plowing through all the snow is a major undertaking. This photo was taken well after the road was opened but long before the snow melts and there is a brief burst of plant life, but no trees since this well above the timberline.

A different time when I was on this same road I saw a Ferrari zoom by in the opposite lane, a bit unusual but not totally surprising (other than lots of traffic this would be a fun road to drive fast in a good sports car). Then, zoom, a Lamborghini, and then another one, Lamborghini, and another Ferrari. I later found that for a very high price these cars can be rented for the day just to drive this road and other places in Montana (where in many places there is not a specific numeric speed limit).
