Beartooth Highway, or was it?

My sister said I had to drive the Beartooth Highway. And to get there from Bozeman, you make a loop through a small corner of Yellowstone National Park -- a busy place on a summer weekend.

Outside the park:

And then just inside the North Entrance:

Mammoth Hot Springs

Undine Falls

The Yellowstone River near Tower Falls

Landscape recovering from old forest fires:

The Lamar Valley:

This panorama is too broad to allow you to see the wildlife scattered along the river.

Yes, pink snow.

And continued up the highway:

Into the clouds. None of the famed views were visible. And, it got down to 37ºF. (My niece ran the camera here.)

Eventually we dropped back out of the clouds.

And wound our way down the mountain.

And, after a very long day, were back in Bozeman in time for moonrise.
